September 17, 2012Recent Finds From Iowa – Seattle ‘64 World’s Fair Glasses, A Lamp and A Bird Planter
So, even though we set out on our recent trip with the goal of delivering a Midnight the cat to Sara in AZ, we still managed to accumulate some vintage stuff. Our best stop was at The Brass Armadillo in Des Moines, Iowa. It is part of a chain of antique malls (say what?) and it was just packed with fun stuff. When we walked in they even gave us a map and a pencil so we could write down where we saw stuff in case we wanted to go back for it. I really, really wish we would have time to take pictures for you guys. But we really only ran in and out since we had a HUGE drive ahead of us. We just grabbed up whatever items could fit in our arms as we raced through.
It turns out Tom can hold a lot of frosted glasses if he wants to.
We have been looking for these Seattle World’s Fair glasses for a while now in good condition and for a reasonable price. Tom was especially happy to find so many!
They are now happily nestled in the cabinet with the Harlequin, and we are on the lookout for rest of them!
This little lamp was just too cute to leave. I don’t normally see these with a perfect plastic shade, so I snapped this one up.
And last of all, we got this cute little bird friend for the birdie planter that was already living in our pink bathroom. I figure this will be good for cotton balls or Q-tips…or maybe just to look adorable!
Anybody else have any fun finds this weekend?? I would love to hear about them!
