Floor lamp & glasses {MCM Thrift Store Finds}

Technically the floor lamp is not a thrift store find since it’s from a legit vintage shop in Cincinnati called Red Polly. But it’s mid-century modern and we found it. A lovely addition to our living room, we think.

At a real thrift store in Cinci we found these OJ glasses that match a pitcher we got here in Nashville a few months ago. They might not be from the same set but they’re pretty darn close. The glasses are Anchor Hocking but the pitcher is unmarked. Cute, huh?

We also found these smokey yellow glasses that reminded us of our grandmothers. I like the shape. There are 4 total but 1 was in the dishwasher when I photographed these.

That’s all for this household but our shopping buddies picked up a few cool things, too:

Retro blue canister set

Blue starburst glass vase

Corning Ware “Spice of Life” canister

Glasbake navy blue star / snowflake casserole dish

Curtis Jere wall sculpture of wheat (from Stu)

    Great finds!!! Everything in my house is from a thrift store or garage sale. My entire studio apartment was furnished for less than $450.00 that way and it has Ithink far more character than anything you get at the mall. I really love that end table.Was that a thrift shore purchase?

      Sure was! One of our best finds ever. A matching set of two end tables and a coffee table by American by Martinsville for $5 a piece at a thrift store!
