Made a trip to one of my favorite local thrift stores Friday and came back with some fun, eclectic finds! My daughter and I are always on the hunt for pieces for our sales and etsy, but one of the perks of the job is we get first pick of the treasures! That was the case on this trip with a charming little 19th century oil painting- Liana decided it was going home with her! We also found a lovely engraved silverplate coffee/teapot- I particularly love pieces with lots of engraved decoration and tarnish.
A miniature dog figurine caught my eye, as did a sweet little violets dish.
We made some good graphics and ephemera finds- some old 30's Liberty Weekly newsboy prize coupons and old 30's Wheaties boxtops.
My favorite discovery was an 1889 Botany book- worn, leather-bound, with descriptions and decorative plates- it will be fun to reproduce for graphics!
