This little donkey feels like it's chalkware. It has a label--hand painted Tinkerware from Moorcraft in England. This particular figure is named "Fawn". I found the male counterpart on Etsy. I could not leave the thrift without taking this little gal. I tried. Maybe you can understand why when you see her at her different angles.
Vintage Lefton Owls from a garage sales for 25 cents each! They were dirty and dull and now they shine. They will go in the laundry room with the other 1960s vintage kitsch! I want to find some mod flower curtains one of these days for the windows in that room.
I thought this flocked ceramic wall pocket was neat. It's about twelve inches wide at the top. I have this faux Boston fern tucked in it.
We scooped up the following stuff today. Not a lot for the amount of time and miles we put on our feet, but it was all worth it for a few great nuggets!
I was so happy to get my very own brass jack! This one is a bit rough as you can see the seams, so it's not one of those high end ones, but I certainly didn't expect that for what I paid. Here's another picture next to the chip and dip.
Hubby didn't get it AT ALL! He was like "you're gonna buy that?" I told him "I've seen them on ebay, it's mid century modern sculpture". He looked it up and I think he's feelin' it now.
I've got some thing with vintage ceramic pillar candle holders made in Japan. Found these today, 50 cents for the gold and 99 cents for the red make it too hard to pass up. They are dirty and have wax on them, I know what I'll be doing tomorrow!
I couldn't help but pick up this unopened made in Japan painting and easel dated 1968. I'm fascinated by things in their original packaging. Like you just plucked it off the shelf. And the other little painting to the right was 50 cents. It was only when we dropped back in the store a second time on our way home, and it was still there I decided I would get it. I think this impressionistic gourd, apple and corn on wood is rendered beautifully! I love paintings where you can see and feel the texture.
The painting is residing with other vintage finds on the kitsch katcher!
Well! What a day. I'm looking forward to relaxing a little. Thrifting is a lot of work! Think I'll head over to Pyrex Collective III and post my finds for last week. You can check it out here!
