The good thrifting news? At least I wasn't tempted to buy more random vintage coffee mugs.
But I'll move on to what I did find.
Check out this sleek, mid-century, silver-plated candy dish. (At least I think it's a candy dish. I found it described as such online.) It was made by Reed & Barton (the bottom reads "Reed & Barton/251/A"), and the inside enamel is chartreuse.
Love, love, love it.
And I found this great vintage globe. I still need to do some research, as I'm not sure whether it's vintage 1980s, vintage 1970s, or what. It does include the USSR, making it older than my kids. So I'll go from there when I start digging.
It's by Repogle; it's the "Repogle® 12 inch Diameter Globe World Classic Series," to be exact. But there's more.
It's a raised-relief globe! So I can run my fingers over the Appalachian Mountains, my future home, whenever I feel like it! (It's the little things.)
But, dangit, I like this pattern. And I like coffee. I also like chocolate, pinecones, and rich dirt. There are so many delicious browns in this world!
Finally, I'll show you the plant stand that I bought. (Lousy photo, I know.)
Granted, this thing could be vintage 2012 and originally purchased at Old Time Pottery, for all I know. But it cost me a buck-fifty. And you can't beat a buck-fifty for a plant stand. So I grabbed it, and now I'm boasting. This is why I like thrift stores.
