Most of this week's Vintage Thingies came from spur of the moment flea market and thrift store shopping last weekend.
Saw this shelf at Goodwill for $6.99 and thought it would be the perfect spot for the Pyrex I've been trying not to collect.
Looks like it was made in the '60s, maybe. It's oak. Love those mid-mod feet.
If I get tired of the Pyrex on display, I can always switch to something else. Goodness knows I've got enough other collections to rotate.
I added a couple pieces to the vintage flower pot collection (the ones on the bottom left and right). Actually, the idea was to pick up a couple of what looked to be no-name pots that I could use to repot a couple of sad-looking African violets. But when I got this one home, I discovered it did have a name after all--Weller. So there went that idea. I just can't bring myself to put dirt in it now.
Meanwhile, this violet is making a break for it.
And it may already be too late for this poor thing...
On a happier note, isn't this turtle sprinkler cute?
Speaking of making a break for it, looks like he's bound for the Grand Canyon!
How rude of me to turn him over just as he's formulated his escape plan. Sorry, buddy. You're staying with me for a while.
There was a dollar table at the flea market where I picked up a few things. One was this stainless steel carafe made by Alloy Products of Waukesha, Wisconsin. I've seen a lot of Pyrex and other glass carafes in this style, but this is the first all-metal one I'd seen.
But my favorite is this gem of a glass tray that was on the same dollar table. I didn't know anything about the signature on it, Georges Briard, but it definitely had that funky, mid-century modern vibe that appeals to me.
When I got home, I found out some interesting information about Georges Briard glass here and here. A great piece, I think, for a buck!
