Thrift Share - Fantastic Plastics

It may be Fall (almost Christmas...yikes), but my finds this week make me long for summer!
Red Picnic Ball & Yellow Ice Bucket
Don't they remind you of Ketchup & Mustard? lol.
Picnic Party Ball by Ingrid of Chicago
The Party Ball is missing a few cups, but otherwise seems like a pretty complete set.
Georges Briard Plastic/Vinyl Ice Bucket
I'll probably list both of these in the shop in the spring.  Speaking of Etsy shops, how were your Black Friday sales?  I had my biggest month ever with my Holiday Sale & want to thank all of my Lovely Customers who took advantage of the savings!  
Carrying all of these orders into the Post Office took 2 trips :-)

I can't wait to see what everyone else found this week.  I'll be linking up to Her Library Adventures Flea Market Finds so be sure to check out all of the goodies over there too!

Inspirational Outings - More Moore

Sculpture Gardens at Norton Simon Museum
I had an opportunity to visit Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena this past weekend.  I wanted to visit the Printmaking Exhibition that was being shown for the Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. 1945-1980 series.  It was a wonderful exhibition, and though I was struck by the amazing prints favorite part of the museum had to be the abundance of Henry Moore sculptures.
I've always admired the work of Henry Moore, but his pieces really spoke to me during this visit.
I can't wait to visit the museum again!

Left Behind

I've been in somewhat of a funk this week during my thrifting adventures.  
Lots of cool finds, but many I've left behind.
I'm still kicking myself over this vintage suitcase/trunk.

At $14.95 it broke my $10 rule, needed a lot of work, and I didn't really have a place to store it.
Among the other forgotten? 1 Ana Everlund Candlestick, an amazing mens Polo Leather Coat, a pair of women's Moschino pants, and 2 1960s paintings to name a few.

Oh well, there's always next time and many more amazing things to find.

Thrift Share - Cool Bamboo & Gucci Too!

Bamboo is hot this fall, and is never out of style on a Gucci handbag.
Gucci launched the Bamboo handle in 1972, discontinued it in 1975, and then reintroduced it again in 1989.  Since that time, the Bamboo handles have been a classic touch on many beautiful Gucci bags.
Gucci Peggy Top Handle Bag
So imagine my surprise when I came across this beautiful bag at a local Thrift Shop for only $3.00.   
I had a few heart palpitations, broke into a sweat, and ran immediately to the cash register to make sure no one was playing a trick on me.  I bought it on the spot and have been glowing every since!
 Though it's sometimes hard to tell an original vs. a knockoff, I firmly believe this amazing find is the real deal!  The leather is soft & supple, the hardware is pristine, it's marked and labeled and lined in a wonderful suede.  I'm guessing the bag dates from the 1980s or early 90s.

I've already carried it several times & know this wonderful find will be a cherished possession for many years to come!

I'm linking up to the Thrift Share parties over at Selena's and Sophie's this week, so be sure to see lots of other fun finds there too!

Cheers ~ Lara
