May 30, 2013Retro Kitsch For Sale at The Local Salvage Store!
By Sara In AZ
Recently Mike and I had to make a trip to a local building supply ‘salvage’ store called Stardust Building Supplies. Stardust is a lot like Habitat For Humanity ReStore, as they sell various salvaged building supplies. Just like ReStore you never know what you are going to find on any given day, so it’s always the thrill of the hunt that drives you to poke around!
Let’s see what they have for sale today!
They had no less than 4….yes – 4! American Standard sinks! This style of sink is meant to be under mounted and tiled in……with a wedge that kind of juts out from the front. Sooooooo retro cool!
The original labels all still intact.
The 4 sinks were all a very pretty light gray color. I’m betting they all came from the same home!
All the sinks were $20 each – what a great deal!
I also saw this cute little mint green sink with the Hudee ring still attached. This sink was enamel over steel and was not in the best of shape – but I still liked the color.
This sink was $10.
Looks like someone ripped out their whole bathroom counter and guess what………………..
………………it’s all lovely gold fleck laminate!!!! AWESOME!
The whole kit and caboodle was just $35!
I was dying when I saw this last find of the day…………..dying I tell you!
Bear with me, I know the pictures don’t completely do it justice……it’s ALL light pink with gold sparkle laminate!!!!
It was SOOOOOOO pretty!
Trust me, it’s not white – but the most beautiful pale pink.
Oh gosh, I hope you can get some idea of how pretty the pink was.
I took this picture with a piece of white paper against the laminate so hopefully you can get a better idea of the pale pink color.
If only they still made laminate as FAB as this!
Each section was only $10.
And guess what…..after thinking (and obsessing!) about the pink laminate for a week I HAD to go back and get it! I mean for only $20 how can I go wrong? And it’s pink!!!! PINK!!!!!
I’m not sure what I’ll do with it yet, I just have it stored in the shed. Maybe I’ll use it as a work surface once we find our dream house….we could cut it into a table….who knows!
Anyone out there have any ideas on what I should do with my vintage pink sparkle laminate???
