Thrift Share - Modern Vintage

I did really well keeping up with blogging about some of my finds last week, so this Thrift Share Monday post is a little bit of recap and a little bit of new!

My favorite find was definitely this sweet little Mid-Centrury chair from the Goodwill for only $6.99. 
I blogged about it a little earlier this week on The Thrift Collective but couldn't wait to show it off again! 
It could stand to be reupholstered and I think I have just the fabric for it...I've been holding onto both of these amazing 1970s retro patterned fabrics for a special project and this chair may just fit the bill!

Which one do you think would look best???

I also had some great thrift scores for my shop
 I find that Vintage Clothing sells well, so I was on the lookout for some cute dresses this week.  I hit the jackpot at one of my favorite stops by the hospital and picked all of these items up for under $8 each.
Clockwise from Left to Right:
1960s Crochet Cardigan
Mr. Blackwell 1950s Black Floral Shift Dress
SOLD ~ Seafoam Green & Brown Dior Blazer circa 1980s
SOLD ~ Pret A Porter Boho Maxi circa 1970s
SOLD ~ Blue Animal Print 1970s Day Dress by "The Stroller"

At the Goodwill where I snagged the chair, I also found some fun glassware.  
Not a usual purchase for me since I know absolutely nothing about glassware & think it's probably a pain to ship, but I thought I would try something new in the shop anyway.
These fun serving trays by are Georges Briard.
and these adorable Tumblers are Briard too.
This Colored Glass Pitcher and Glass set is marked Vereco France.
and this set of 6 black bowls are labeled Arcoroc France.

Last but not least, I couldn't leave you without some art.  This little painting is masterfully done and happens to be by California artist Patti Rock.  Though I haven't found out too much about her yet, it's a sweet little painting and I'm glad to add it to my collection!

Hope you enjoyed this weeks Thrift Share Monday post, and be sure to check out all of the amazing finds from other thrifters via Apron Thrift Girl's blog :-)
See ya'll next week!


  1. What sweet finds! I love those Briard glasses. And the chair is too cute--I vote for the black and white fabric.

  2. Nice on the Georges Briard finds! I think you might do well on the glasses in your shop. We sold 2 sets pretty quickly, though they had gold leaf on them..

  3. Great finds and that chair is fantastic. I vote for the green and blue fabric. Looks like it'd be perfect for the style. Either will look nice though.

  4. I like the green and blue fabric! That chair ROCKS!!! And so did all of your other finds! You really do have a great eye for super purchases!!!

  5. My vote for the fabric....the green & blue! Loving the glasses too!
