Ebay find

Sunday, 5 September 2010

Ah bless! Three weeks of freedom - aka the (somewhat belated) summer holidays - await me.

After sleeping through most of the last 36 hours, I thought I'd kick off the holidays by showing you some of my latest thrifting/ebay finds.

This gorgeous Scheurich Ceramos vase caught my eye on ebay a few weeks back.

The super nice seller had listed it for a 12 eur 'buy it now' price, but immediately accepted my offer of 8 eur. Add 6 eur for shipping - that's always the catch, isn't it ? - and you get a still decent price tag of 14 eur for this beauty.

I was pretty pleased with myself.

A welcome addition to my neglected orange & yellow collection of West German pottery.

And yes, I am trying a more minimal look on the Cadovius shelves. But more of that later.


  1. That's a fantastic vase, and the tall yellow one in the back is great too. The shipping on ebay purchases is always such a pain, but think of it this way--if you wanted to buy a vase of comparable quality today new in the shops, you probably wouldn't find one for 14 EUR, unless you went to IKEA and bought one that everybody else has too.

  2. I like your pottery collection! I have found your blog recently via the Brick House and I like it very much. I really like your home! I added you to my google reader. Another expat from Brussels

  3. Lavalotti, thanks for the rationalising ;-) I am sure I will be using that argument again...

    Hello and welcome Monika. Uh-oh and a fellow blogger from Brussels none the less. Cool !

  4. I always like your pottery selections!

  5. Hello and thank you - Newburgh Restoration ! Stay tuned for more to come... I still need to show off my holiday finds. And I was lucky again this weekend :-)

  6. That's a gorgeous vase and a bargain! I love it!
