I had ordered a couch online but due to weird zoning rules the company was unable to deliver it.Apparently there is a weight limit of nothing bigger than a lumber truck being allowed on my road and surrounding roads.The company delivers in a semi so I'll take it as divine intervention.The vintage gods REALLY didn't want be to have a new "vintage style" couch,they must be saving an awesome real deal for me out there.
Now that I'll HAVE to shop locally for a vintage couch I thought today would be a good day to start.No luck in that department on this trip but I did at the second thrift I went find this chair(fist was a TOTAL bust in all departments).It is orange and stamped July 24th,1962 on the bottom.Orange doesn't work with the idea for the color scheme I've been hunting for but for $4.00 I couldn't bring myself to just leave it there!Even if I can't use it in my living room it can have a good home in my office.
The third (and sadly last place my kids and dear husband had the patience for) scored me this fantastic dress for the shop!I need to give it a clean up before it hits the shop.
Another fun piece I also picked up for the shop was this kitschy drink set!I thought it would look amazing on someones tiki bar!The straw bottle is open on the bottom and slips over the alcoholic beverage of your choice and the cups are pretty much like much more decorative cozies.I know what I am about to say may shock some readers but...I don't like tiki *ducks and covers*.I mean I can definitely admire it but as far as collecting it for my personal collection not so much,but I can say this would look awesome on a tiki bar none the less.
I figure if I was lucky enough to score a 1961 Kroehler sectional once for $35.00 I can find another great couch again and hopefully SOON.Oh and vintage gods if you could throw my way an art deco bedroom set so I can complete my bedroom that would also be greatly appreciated.
