The day didn't start right. I had bookmarked a gigantic once a year sale. I thought it started at 10:00. The plan was to get my daughter to her job by 8:00, go back home, sip coffee, eat breakfast, measure some items and pack my camera so I could document the sale and share it here with you. I decided to double check the date just before we left the house. The sale started at 8:00. Ack!!! With barely enough time to change my clothes, I took my daughter to work and went to the sale without breakfast, brushing my teeth and forgot my camera. Sigh.
This would be a good time to go through all the things a person should do to be prepared for a thrifting event. But I won't do that now because this sale turned out to be the mother of all sales. It was a GREAT sale, clean quality items priced to move. I'm showing some of it today, got enough stuff for three thrift shares. So here is part of my bratty haul...
Some retro and mid century things, fondue pot in perfect condition, a dansk decanter, serving utensils, egg cups, pitcher, candle holder, plate, cute purple owl...
I've already used the electric crepe maker for a family gathering today for Father's day. I really like the design of the faux wood tray. Pepper mill in the back. Nice lamp and big platter.
Here's a closer view of the lamp, can't read the name written in it, does anyone recognize it? I'm thinking this must be designer.
These heavy ceramic knobs were just $2!
Can you believe this price for Danish 18/8 stainless steel candle holders? Item to the right is a ribbon holder that you mount to the wall. I'm going to use it to hang my scarves on.

Some items from Japan
I really like the design of this lacquered wood jewelry box. For how cool it is on the outside, the inside has a kind of tacky red velvet.
This vintage Lightolier lamp from Japan is a definite highlight of my thrifting extravaganza. The stem and base are metal, shade is plastic, it was $15. I really like it's modern style and will find a special place for it.
I'll share the rest of the items over the next two weeks or so. Now I'm going to focus on finding a place for everything - and cleaning, organizing and decluttering my house. I want to take time to do projects I've posted about, so I can share them with you.
