Vintage Thrift

This week has been a whirlwind for me. I've been busy getting items listed on two stores, sewing (mending) to add to my living and working with my darling friend to build a web site. I got out to do a couple of small thrift stores, and get my shipping and errands done and get some fresh air and was happy to find good items to resell.

 

My favorite find his week was this vintage made in Japan stainless steal and wood fondue pot. Now I've seen a lot of fondue pots, but nothing as attractive and wonderful than this. It has a couple of marks on the wood, but this is not finding a new home, it is home. Decided this looks just fine on my daughters vintage hutch with her vintage collection.

 
My next find was this vintage set of red metal trays with a gold and black Peacock design. I've seen these listed and was not sure that they would sell, but the price was perfect and I decided to give it a try. I had six likes and one comment on this item on my Facebook page so there is hope.
 
 
I also found this well loved cast iron trivet. It was made in Japan and had a great geometric design. I haven't seen too many done in yellow and after some cleaning up it became sell able. Some one may want to repaint it, but the fact that it was well used meant that it was loved. I like that in my items. Both of these items are listed on butterflyplace.storenvy.com .
 
 
The only other item that I found (bought) was this vintage piece of stretch knit fabric. All I could imagine for it was a fun disco dress. It was well over two yards long and yes, a wow of 56 inches wide. Did we actually have fabric that wide back then? I was not paying attention. Shame on me. This fabric is listed on butterflyplace.etsy.com .
 
This week I have more mending to do and will be packaging the glass items listed this past week for storage until sold. We'll be continuing with the web site and of course I will continue listing items. I hope everyone has a wonderful week and great luck with your stores.
