Thrifted Thursday

Lately I have been indulging in some thrifting for myself rather than for resale. I recently purchased a 1954 suburban ranch home complete with original wood pocket doors, wood cabinets, floors (all in a lovely honey colored birch) and Franciscan tiled kitchen and bathrooms. The house has only had one previous owner since it was built. The woman who lived here loved her home and kept it immaculate and in great shape.

I knew I wanted to keep the house happy and fill it with lovely mid century goodies and what a perfect excuse to hunt for vintage pieces. Because I do have a new mortgage, amongst other expenses I didn’t have in a rental, I am being very frugal. I am happy that my thrift trips have been successful…

I found these pots separately at two different thrift stores. I love how low they are. They look really great on my fireplace but I think I want to search for a mid century plant stand to show them off more like sculptures. I can’t decide if I actually want to plant real life plants in them. I’m more of a fake foliage kinda girl.

They are both marked but I can’t really make out what the markings say. I know one is marked California.

Has anyone else thrifted anything wonderful lately?

I recently thrifted a vintage Fire King white fish platter complete with the original metal stand that has handles and holds tealight candles to keep the dish warm. I love the look of those old dishes.

Julie, I love Fire King products. Yours sounds awesome!

Those look like Frank Moreno pottery-’60s I think.

Thanks Mary! I’ll have to research him. They aren’t marked with that name though. Knock offs maybe?
