Thrifting Finds

Ever go to a sale where the offerings are slim and you start to regret the time and gas spent to get there? THEN you find one great thing. Such was the case this past weekend at an estate sale. I was about to leave when I noticed a great side table in the corner. I paid $35 for it and took it home.

I like the style of this table -  the details on the drawers, the legs, the open space and iron bars on the side.  The brand name is Brandt. I've seen some of their more rustic furniture. Think I'll spray paint the knobs and feet covers black for now. Flanking the table are my Baker Chairs, a previous craigslist find.

I found two pieces of Dansk enamelware at another sale. The pitcher is a really pretty cobalt blue, which doesn't show in the picture. I think it will be great with fresh flowers in it. I paid $6 for it. The brown casserole has some wear on the enamel around the edges, but I was excited to find it so I bought it anyway, it was only $3.

The candleholders were $6 for the pair. They are heavy for their size and have great mid century style. The label says nagel, made in Germany. Anyone familiar with these? I feel like I've seen them before.

I bought this vase for $1.50, I like the style and finish. It says USA originals on the bottom with other markings. I've come across USA pottery countless times but the markings seem different.

Did you have any good finds this past weekend?

  2. Stopping by from Apron Thrift Girl!

    Love the side table! What a great deal! Looks like you found some great items! Way to go!

  3. I love that table AND this post solved a mystery for me! I have a pitcher just like that blue one, in brown, and I have long wondered where it came from. Totally makes sense that it would be Dansk.

  4. Thanks for stopping by, love all your finds!! The table looks great. Scarlett x

  5. What a fun table! I would want to immediately spray paint it some glossy, bright color-love your restraint in just doing the feet and knobs for now and 'letting it be'.

  6. I LOVE the enamelware! I am on the lookout for a gorgeous enamel jug similar to yours! Miss Walker xoxo
