Dan and I thrifted locally this weekend and I'm so excited about my find of the day. Here it is:
Look at all those tufts! It still has its tag stating it came from the Lord & Taylor in Falls Church, Virginia. I did a little research and found the high-end department store opened in Falls Church in 1965 but was later changed to an outlet for the chain to try and revive sales. Unfortunately it didn't work, and they closed their doors in July 1992. This darling chair was at SALVO. It's vinyl, it swivels and rocks! It's incredibly comfortable...all for $25. I had first considered getting it reupholstered in a gray twill to match the master bedroom but now I'm not sure I want to change it!
Here are the other finds:
1950s pink plastic "Baby" cup. I found this at the GW outlet and thought it would look cute in my craft room to hold buttons.
The Hazel Atlas Mason jar and vintage glass Christmas bulbs came from the GW outlet. I found the jar first and when I came across the bin with hundreds of the bulbs in all colors, I grabbed the jar and filled it up with teal and whites ones.
I also found this hunk of milk glass at the outlet:
Since housewares are so cheap there, I decided to take a chance and see if I could make this into a lamp.
I'm on the lookout for green/pink (watermelon!) glass stemware but these sweet pink/blue cups are so pretty (at a $1 each at GW) they made the cut :)
I found Siesta Ware mugs a few months ago (HERE) and since there was only 4 of them, these will round out the collection nicely:
I love the print on these. I'm linking up!
