Thrift - Kaj Franck Origami

My sis is in from Dublin so we went to the thrift store. Found a chipped Kaj Franck Origami K F 2 plate. It was unmarked and is possibly a knock-off but at 50 cents I'll keep it for a while. In addition, I found an original Taylor & Ng whale mug and a pair of blue enamel Turkish pots. My sister found a cute little colorful plastic organizer made in Italy and a set of six NOS green melamine fondue plates made in Japan. Wasn't expecting to find anything today so we were pleased.

Forgot to take a shot of the 1970s red Coleman cooler we picked up, its in slightly better condition than the one pictured below (sorry borrowed the image from Ebay) We were surprisd to see they are worth some decent coinage on Ebay.

We had tons of green tomatoes from our garden this year so the hubs recommended I try making salsa. Wow! I only wish I had made this sooner!

Thrift - Unicorn Mug

After more than a week off I ventured to the thrifts today. Finds mights be getting lean now that the Christmas season is taking off and yes, it gets earlier every year as I often talk to retailers about this.

Found a Bull Taylor & Ng mug (really should have started collecting them years ago instead of selling them) A sail boat mug from Kilkenney Ireland for the sis - nautical and horse racing crap seems to be popular there in addition to those ugly little fascinator hats (not all fascinators are ugly just ones by the endless slew of horrible Irish hat designers) And last an unicorn mug by Audrey Christie (found the cuteness rabbit mug by her too)

That's it. Chow. Off to enjoy traffic free roads, thanks to the government shutdown or Obamacare.
