Thrift Share - Little Teapots & Bright Flowers

I had a beautiful Spring weekend with friends here in SoCal & hope you had a beautiful weekend in your part of the world too!  I had an opportunity to do a little thrifting over the past week, and here's a taste of a few things that made it home with me!
Don't these 2 Arabia of Finland pots make a cute Pair? I can't decide if they are 2 sizes of teapots or a coffee pot & a tea pot.  What do you think?
As if the 2 Arabia pots weren't enough, I also brought home this Thomas Germany pot too!  I think it has the most wonderful lines, so simple yet beautiful.
I made my first Pyrex purchase this past week.  I see Pyrex all of the time, but usually pass it by.  But this time I just couldn't resist the bright spring colors and wonderful condition of the set.  
I believe this vintage carrying case is probably a wine carrier, though it could probably be used for carrying or storing just about anything.  I'm guessing it's from the 70s, and think it's so charming!
Speaking of charming, I probably paid a little more than I should have for this adorable set of hand painted floral plaques.  I just love the brightly painted flowers, and think they are expertly done.  I love to photograph beautiful blooms, and wish I could paint them this well too.  These weren't the only bright art flowers I found, check out this fun crewel art too!
Also, not my typical style...but it was just too cute to leave behind.

Most of these goodies will be up in the shop in the next few weeks.  I'm holding a big 25% Off Spring Sale through next weekend so stop by and check out whats new to you at NowSoLA Vintage!

I'm also linking up to ATG's Thrift Share Monday & HLA's Flea Market Finds, so I can't wait to see what wonderful finds you came home with too!

  1. Love the teapots, beautiful lines! I think I would have taken the pyrex with me too, this set is in beautiful condition. Love your finds.

  2. oh the colours of that pyrex, divine! nice finds!

  3. Neat finds, I like the hex sign (?) that's in the shot of the tea/coffee pots. Oddly enough I saw the same set of Pyrex bowls at the thrift this week but left them behind as my kitchen is already exploding with vintage wares.

  4. Like you, I often pass up Pyrex unless it's really unusual or in mint conditon, but these bowls are just gorgeous--love the colors!

  5. Those mixing bowls are wonderful. And I would have snatched them up if I had the chance.

    It is so odd what seems plentiful locally for me. Which is the 70's colors of Pyrex. Just oodles of harvest gold, avocado green and brown. And priced as if it is rare.

  6. I absolutely love the floral crewel art - such bright colors and great composition. I have a hard time leaving those kind of treasures behind. The pyrex looks fabulous - it is not the colors I collect but it looks to be in unused condition and would be difficult to pass up. I also love all the white pots - I would guess that the first two are a set of coffee and tea pots. Super finds!
