The weather was stunning this weekend especially today when it was sunny and in the high 70's. It felt like summer. The thrifting on the other hand was not so good. I wasn't the only one complaining as other thrifters that I talked to in line over the course of the weekend all complained about the same thing. It is a little easier to complain about lousy thrifting in nice weather.
The funny thing about thrifting is that while it was very hard work this weekend to find anything, I did find items both to sell and keep. In time, I'll forget that the weekend was slim pickings and instead remember how fabulous the individual finds were.
Have you ever seen one of these before? It is marked pyrex so maybe it's for one of their glass coffee pot? I loved it because of the clock feature. Unsure for now what I'll do with it. Keiran and I found this at a family run estate on Saturday morning.
I figure most people might not find this sculpture too attractive. I do think it looks fabulous especially in our Mid Century Modern styled living room. It's on the hi-fi at the moment behind our couch. I bought it because I was hoping it was another Jere. In fact it's signed Jer in metal letters and it looks like it is broken off after the R. I realized though once I arrived home that Jere pieces were always signed with a cursive J and this is signed with a printed J. I may keep it or I may take it to Alameda Flea Market if I do decide to sell there. For now it's a feature point in our living room.
iittalia glasses from Finland.
These were my find of the weekend as far as ReSelling goes. These are from Finland. I spotted these at an estate sale an hour and a half after it started. They saved my weekend so I feeled blessed that I was able to spot them in a kitchen cabinet. They are heading to eBay this week.
I picked up 4 of the small and 6 of the large in total. I think their design is so fab.
Keiran and I were on our way home from a dismal Saturday when we came across this last yard sale. It didn't look too promising until I found these at the bottom of a box.
Not a great thrifting weekend all in all but we did enjoy a (free using hotel miles) night at a hotel on Saturday night. I discovered an incredible store which I'll tell you about later in the week. We also popped into the Alameda Flea Market on Sunday morning to scope it in case we sell there. More details on that later as well. Here are some items that I found that are available for you in my Little Shop.
Vintage Bucilla Embroidery Thread (sets of 10) can be purchased here.

Costume Jewelry Bling Braclet can be purchased here.
