Thrifty Vintage Finds - Fun Stuff!

Picked up some fun stuff recently.  As always, don't NEED these things, but got them anyway!

This was a surprise find!  I had the opportunity to buy a Catherineholm bowl before, but I passed it up.  I think they are neat, but I just wasn't feeling it.  Today I ran into this Arabia bowl and had to have it!  Sweet price of $4!  Couldn't beat that!


And speaking of mushrooms, hubby found this oh so 70s wall plaque.  It will go in the laundry room with the other 60s-70s decor.  He wouldn't leave the giraffe behind either!


A couple of vintage copper Egyptian plates to hang in the library.  These are pretty neat!  The original price tag is still on the back--we can't read it.

 
Love this Lucite Wondermold potholder hanger.  It has hardware attached to hang 3 potholders. Such a bright and cheerful flower! Gotta find a place in the kitchen to hang it!


Hubby also found these glittery Lucite swordfish wall plaques.  We have a set of Lucite abalone dolphins already...these will go along with those in the marine themed bathroom.

And lastly, this is something we saw and didn't pick up.  But we talked about that evening and decided we would go back and get it if it was still there.  I had to take pictures of different angles. This little Indian boy has real fur, feathers and suede along with seed and bugle beads.  It appears he was mounted on something at one point.  We just found him to be adorably sweet and funny at the same time.  The way his hands are on his hips have a kinda "are you done yet" vibe to it.
