Thrift - Dorothy Thorpe Shattered

Am really behind on several posts of estate sale finds. Not to mention updating Etsy. Have been slacking these past few weeks and now I'm panicking with all the items to clean and photograph!

Stopped by a thrift store across from my dentist after having a wisdom tooth pulled-that's how hard core I am! Not to mention, I was so out of it that I forgot my wallet in the restroom. In addition to having a morbid fear of dentists!

Enough about that, I did find a January "Love" series mug designed by Kenneth Townsend. Plus, four Dorothy Thorpe silver rimmed wine glasses SOLD. Unfortunately, the glasses weren't wrapped well and one broke. It's so sad cause it was in mint condition. Just hate when things have lasted 30-60 years and then it comes to me and breaks.


  1. Thrift sadness. I am swamped too, but that does not stop me from thrifting. I have high hopes for tomorrow as I head out to my favorite thrifts. Good luck to you!

  2. I feel the same way about breakage. I won a Ben Seibel salt and pepper set on eBay, and they arrived broken. It really is sad to see something destroyed after surviving 5 or 6 decades.

  3. Argh. Those three words, Dorothy Thorpe Shattered were kinda sad.
