Thrift Share - 4 Great Scores All at 1 Store

I found all of my best finds this week at the same Thrift Store on Tuesday.  The first thing I set my eyes on was this vase.  I believe it's a piece from the Rimini Blue Line by Aldo Londi, as the pattern is so similar to the Clock that I found a few months ago.  It's stamped Italy on the bottom, but I'm a little skeptical because there are some odd (un-smooth) areas on the vase.  Not sure if thats Normal??? 

I then found this set of Heath Pottery plates in the same area.  I actually saw them about 2 weeks ago & left them behind since there wasn't really a full set.  But, since they were still in the store and I was already buying the vase & the fact that they were less than $5 for all of them, I decided to bring them home.

I sat all of these goodies on the counter and headed back to scope out the rest of the store, when behind a tall dresser I spotted the spokes of this clock peeking out.
It's an 8 Day Teak & Metal clock by Lux.  I posted about it over on The Thrift Collective earlier this week, but added a few more pics for my Thrift Share post.  It's in overall good condition with the exception of the back cover being broken.  Thank goodness no one usually sees the back!

Last but not least I found this framed Embroidery piece.  I actually believe this was once a small folding table.  There was still a broken swivel leg attached to the bottom, but I unscrewed the leg & think it would be nicer hanging.  

I can't wait to see what everyone else found last week & will be linking up again to ATG's Thrift Share Monday, Her Library Adventures Flea Market Finds, and Costal Charms Nifty Thrifty Tuesday so be sure to check out all the other found treasures there...I know I will!

  1. what a great clock, and to think you almost missed it. Lovely embroidery too.

  2. Beautiful finds all around! The color on the Heath pieces looks amazing.

  3. Some great finds! I have a few pieces of that "smooth" Rimini pottery too - I never figured out whether it was actually Rimini Blu, though it does look really similar.

  4. Love the Rimini...are you sure it might not be Risotti? Did I spell that right? Anyway, its a beautiful high quality piece and the clock, yeoow AWESOME!!

  5. i'm green with envy! love it!

  6. Love that clock! I have no idea why clocks like this ever went out of style. Your find is perfect, broken back piece or no! I really love that embroidery too.
