May 17, 2013My Retro Roadtrip – Part Two
Now, I don’t know about the rest of you, but I LOVE to look at thrift shops and antique stores when I am in a different city. I find I often see a lot of the same stuff at home, so I always find cool different things when I head somewhere else! I’ve got some pictures of some neat mid-century things that I saw at the antique mall in West Seattle.
I had to get a picture of this, as this immediately made me think of our lovely blog hostess, Ruth – these baskets were all filled with vintage cookbooks! Ruth, if you’re ever in that area, you should definitely take a look here, as you may find some great ones for your collection!
I really liked this ashtray, as it is such a mid-mod, boomerang shape. However, I have yet to think of a good repurposing for vintage ashtrays – does anyone out there have any suggestions of other things to use them for?
Poodles, Poodles, Poodles! These poodles were all so utterly adorable!
I liked this piece as well – this serving dish is from the Gourmates by Glo-Hill collection, which I have a collection of. I just got a kick out of it having a Canada Centennial engraving on it, and finding it at a shop in Seattle!
They had so many salt & pepper shakers as well, including quite a few cute ones. However, I found them to be pretty pricey – are salt and pepper shakers usually in the $25 and up range in the US?
So today I showed you all of the things that I didn’t buy … come back next Wednesday, and I will show you what I did buy!
