We might have a problem.

I can’t stop buying. I just can’t. It’s ridiculous, really, considering I don’t have the booth anymore and there’s a finite amount of stuff I can sell at the Bazaar. I think this happened last summer, though — I just find myself with so much free time on my hands, there’s nothing else to do other than thrift shop! And when you hit thrift stores regularly, you can’t help but find great stuff. And that just feeds the obsession. If summertime is the only time I’m this ridiculous, it’s okay, right?

Here’s a few of my most recent finds.

New obsession: pitchers in the shape of the animals, as demonstrated by the rabbit and purple cow above.  I’m pretty sure that Redman picnic basket was one the Brady Bunch took with them on picnics. So seventies! The silver stand and cloche aren’t old, but I couldn’t resist — there are two of them. And I don’t think the liquor decanters are old, but I think the silver nameplates on them are. I went ahead and got them because cocktail stuff sold so well at the last Bazaar.

Shara Love that picnic basket. I collect Redman’s and I have never seen on like that – something else to look for!!!! (Like I need another thing to look for, right?)

Lara Jo I know! I thought of you when I bought it! It must have been made in the seventies — would have matched all of the kitchens back then!

Leilani How funny, I got my mom the set that the cow belongs to a while ago… it included salt & pepper shakers, a creamer and sugar. 🙂

Lara Jo oh, that sounds adorable!! Where did you find it? Does she need the creamer, or did it come with the set?
