Wednesday Thrifting Score

I found a couple of beautiful things at a thrift store yesterday and can't wait to share them with you!

First a sexy Morso cooking pan - look at those lines!  OK, maybe not sexy but very sleek looking.  It's designed by Michael Lax for Morso.  All of the research I've been doing on these pans show them made by and marked Copco.  Morso is the island the company that made them is on. (hmm, I'll have to figure out how to put a line through the last o)  These bare cast iron pans were apparently more popular in Europe and the enameled did better in North America.  I'm going to list it on Ebay later on.
And how adorable is this Vera scarf.  I found a few really great silk scarves yesterday and last week and will list them in my Etsy shop (yay!  I made another sale!) today.
I also found a big, clunky, super cool looking old Polaroid Land Camera.  I love it and I realize they're a dime a dozen but they looks awesome.  This one is in great shape.  The bellows are perfect.  Not sure what to do with this one yet.
Have a great thrifting week!

Flea Market Find of the Year

So, after reading Her Library Adventures blog post about her finds of the year, I went looking for what I thought mine might be.  I came up with this little Danish side table (it's labeled Mobelintarsia) that I scored at the Salvation Army for about $15.  I love it - it gets used and looks perfect in my living room with my thrifted lamp (um, $6 or $7?) and Walmart lampshade.  I've had it for a few months and will one day finish reupholstering the mid century armchair beside it and will then post a picture of that!

...on a cold Thursday...

I went to a thrift store yesterday and got a few pretty awesome things, if I do say so myself ;)

A really nice Banana Republic purse.
A great leather purse for Etsy.  Vintage, yet I know I've seen this style in magazines recently.  It has a removeable strap in the purse.
*bad picture alert*  Another Liberty silk scarf.  Really pretty, and if you don't mind digging through alot of scarves, not too hard to find!
And the last thing I've taken a picture of, awesome black womens Brahma boots.  Really cute and I'm tempted to keep them myself...
Happy thrifting everyone!
