Secondhand Score: Shopping Salvation
This past Wednesday I took a break from the daily grind with some lunchtime shopping salvation. Wendesdays are 25% off days at my local Salvation Army. Talk about a productive lunch break:
Is this a greenhouse? A terrarium? A candle holder? I’m really not sure. . . but I totally dig it. A touch of Pottery Barn at thrift-store prices: $2.25. I thought it would add some interest to one of the shelves in my guest room, or by a window with an herb plant growing in it. The lid opens so that you can insert things in it, and there is no glass in the lid – so plants could grow out the top of it.
At only $2.00, this little white vase had to come home with me. I’ve got a little collection of white vases and vessels, and this one was in perfect condition. It’s plain and simple, and perfect for a small spray of fresh flowers in any room.
So much carnival glass is too detailed and fussy for me – but these two glasses are tall and simple, and the metallic sheen adds just a bit of fun. Perfect for a glass of water. $1.50 for the pair. Oh yeah.
I really have no freakin’ clue what this is. Do you? But I like the rough rusty texture and architectural style of it – kind of a behind-the-scenes Washington Monument. And at $6.75 after the Wednesday discount – it was worth taking home.
So whaddya think about that metal sculpture-y thing? What would you put inside the glass greenhouse?
