We had our first official ReAbide sale just before Christmas:
Over the weekend Jason and I set out to find a replacement (and anything else we could find!) We were thrilled to find this Bassett long dresser. It was in pretty rough shape but Jason is truly a restoration artist! He got started on it right away, sanding, staining, polyurethaning. It was not 100% done before he had to go out of town for work so it’s not officially in the shop yet.
I also updated a few pictures and added some new items to the ReAbide website and Facebook page.
We’re excited to get rolling in 2013, doing more furniture pickin’, restoration, selling and staging. Happy New Year!
We picked up a couple of little treasures on a recent trip around the Nashville thrift stores.
A retro green silverware tray – not too exciting but I love the color and it has more slots than our old one. And it was 75¢!
Jason’s never going to let me forget that he spotted this lamp FROM THE STREET! Meaning: we were driving past one thrift store on the way to drop off our garage sale junk at the Goodwill and he saw this lamp out of the corner of his eye through the window of the thrift store. That man has eagle vision!
We still need a shade. It had an ugly one paired with it that we left at the store. No thanks. Price: $6.99.
Jason also spotted this neat round plastic carafe. The brand is Alfi and it’s made in Germany.
Sadly, in it’s beautiful roundness it rolled off the counter top and the top broke. It’s no longer a functional piece but it still looks pretty on our display shelf.
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)
