Hi Glam readers! I honestly feel like life is on fast forward and I can barely catch my breath.
It's Wednesday already! With the major construction project we're entrenched in, the new church and getting our kiddos acclimated to a new place, I've hardly had time to thrift. I will be doing the furniture thing here as well, so I have to get out hunting soon!
If you don't go out often, you tend to miss out on stuff.
Perhaps this blog post should have been entitled "The Ones That Got Away".
I went out last week and had just missed out on two MAJOR good things!
Now, I know that this might not look like much, especially surrounded by all the other junk.
It was, however, a fantastic vintage brass coffee table with swan detail. Sure it needed polishing, but I knew it was a gem. Sadly, I missed out on it.
When I looked it up, this is what I found.
The identical table, in a different finish for $2,750!!!! Sweet Georgia Brown, that makes my heart hurt!!!!! Do you want to know how much it was? Seventeen bucks. Ouch. Plus, I loved it, and I happen to need a coffee table because we sold a lot of our belongings before we left Chicago. Sigh.
I also just missed out on an amazing Dorothy Thorpe punch bowl set with roly poly glasses.
It was identical to this one:
This one is available on Chairish for $325.
Do you want to know the details on the one I missed? I just missed it at a local thrift store for eleven dollars.
This just means I have to get out hunting often around here because there's some pretty amazing stuff around and my little business depends on it!
I'll be heading out this week to see what I can find, so wish me luck!
Oh, I did happen to get a couple of pieces from a sweet lady who wanted to just get rid of some stuff, so I'll have some before and after projects to share with you soon!
How about you?
Have you found anything great lately?
