A Trip to the Thrift Store - What People Throw Away
Winking eye tea cups
A very cute set of Bailey's cups caught my eye early on. They agreed to pose for a photo, but didn't take it seriously as you can see. They kept winking.
Elevated candle cage
Obviously a Medieval torture and containment device for unruly candles. If your candles have a tendency to escape or otherwise get out of line, you might want to consider elevating and caging them.
Three woven cups with handles. Interesting look, lightweight, and inexpensive. Inefficient way to hold liquids, though.
Hand towel with bunny applique. What else can I say?
Dog head teacher statue
A fashion-challenged statuette with a dog's head. The base says "teacher" on it. Hmmm. I think this one has deep psycho-social implications.
Paper mache mask
A bright cherry red paper mache mask with bulging eyes. I don't think he will find a new home soon, but I could be wrong.
Very stylish (at some point in the past) kitchen plaque featuring spoons, bread, flowers and a crock. This fine piece screamed "buy me". Somehow I was able to resist.
Lighted ceramic owl
Here we have a very noble ceramic reproduction of an owl. One with many small holes in it. You guessed it - this is secretly a lamp! It leaks light like a sieve leaks water. It sat there proudly, putting to shame all the ordinary lamps on the table.
Wall of discarded art
An entire wall of unwanted art stands watch over the shoe & basket section of the shop. For someone of a particular taste, it's a one-stop supply of ready décor-o-mania.
