A trip to Minnesota wouldn’t be complete with out a thrift store stop. Between our December trip and now, a new thrift store has opened up near my parent’s home. Curious, we stopped in one day, just to take a peek. Obviously, thrifting is hit or miss, but I was pleasantly pleased with how many large furniture pieces they had. Sadly, I couldn’t take anything home with me. But, I had a good time browsing. Kitchenwares are always abundant. I loved this gold striped bowl.
Silver rimmed stem ware could also double as pretty candle holders.
These green ceramic canisters are cute, functional and cheap. The large was $3 and the small only $2.00.
I spotted this $25 mid-century modern end table for my sister. She’s been on a MCM kick for her new home. She loved it, so we took it before someone else could.
Of course, we saw some junk, too. Really, when was this creepy girl lamp ever acceptable? I’d think your kid wouldn’t be able to sleep because of the distant stare.
Oh, look. Another cat figurine.
I’m actually kinda undecided on this brass knight head. With a coat of spray paint, and in the right setting, like a geeky man’s office, I think this could look cool. Sort of how the bright Buddha head statues are all over.
What do you think of Sir Knight? Are poppy painted knight busts the next big design trend? Or flop? Probably neither.
