July 25, 2013My Kitsch-Tastic Day At The Thrifts!
By Sara In AZ
Lately the thrift stores around here have been pretty lean…..not many cool or interesting things to buy at all. Usually when I do a post on my thrifting finds it is a compilation from multiple visits over a month long period….I will find one item here and there but never a lot all together. I was kind of stunned last week when I managed to find some cute kitsch to buy all in one day! Check it out!
While this Nambe candlestick holder is not really kitschy or vintage, I really loved it for it’s clean modern look. We have a few other Nambe things and I thought this would go along nicely.
Wheeeeee! Bubble lights! These are the newer Shiny Brite products from Christopher Radko. I LOVE how he still uses the vintage graphics though….so neat!
Here is a pic of the bubble lights, I do not think they were ever actually used.
Look like I’ll be ready for Christmas when it comes! hee! I could not resist getting this vintage Josef Originals Santa music box when I saw him, I thought he was adorable.
He still works perfectly and is in great condition! Here is a picture of the ‘Josef’ tag.
I was shocked to see this cool old ballerina print at the thrift. I have never seen this line of prints before – it is marked “Carina”. I super love the frame too…..sooooo 50s with that gold splatter all over the front.
And lastly……..**********angels singing*********** I actually found a vintage flamingo figurine!!!! I was completely stunned to not only find a flamingo at the thrift store, but that it was not broken was equally stunning. As we were walking around with the flamingo some lady ran up and accosted us yelling, “Is that Hull” “Is that Hull” over and over again…it was really weird…..we told her “No, it is not marked at all” and ran for cover! I am happy to report back that we did make it out alive and no flamingos were damaged by Hull seekers.
*fingers crossed* for a bunch more kitschy finds next time I hit up the thrifts!
