thriftshare: June 17

What an awesome week for thrifting!

I came across an ad in our local online classifieds for a mid-century teak table and jumped on it.  The ad only said it was made in Norway, and I'm always looking for a nice coffee table.  Turns out it's a Mobler table made by Rasmus Solberg!  It's awesome, I gotta say. I paid $85, then found an identical one on 1stdibs.com for $2700.  *BIG SMILE*

OK, so the top of mine is a little rough, and it's a little bigger  - I don't know if that's good or bad when you're looking at a coffee table? - but it's beautiful.  Larger in scale than our last table, but we'll get used to it.    Here's my baby ;)

I also got to a couple of stores and have actually managed to list some stuff this morning - it's a good day when I'm productive!  I left the store with a couple more silk scarves.  I find people just tend to overlook them, not being clothing, but some of them are so gorgeous.  One is an awesome must de Cartier scarf...drool....
And the other is a Pierre Cardin Jeunesse - lovely and summery!
...and I promise to one day, figure out a better way to photograph a scarf...

Happy thrifitng!


  1. That table is fabulous! I bet the top of it can be fixed up. Teak is usually really easy to refinish. Congrats, it's awesome and I imagine I'm not the only one in blogland that is jealous!

    1. I'm sure it can too. Of course, with 3 messy kids and 2 messy adults ;) AND a teak dining and kitchen table to be redone, it'll have to get in line!

  2. I just love that table! Sooo beautiful. the lines are great
