Ok, lately I haven't been posting as much as I'd like (more about the reasons for this another time). But one area where I am never idle is - you guessed it - the thrifting front.
First off, a couple of finds from a recent trip to Germany.
Little vintage planter bought for 3 eur. A little more subdued than my usual West German pottery buys, but nevertheless looking good on the Cadovius shelves.
Now this is more like it. Large Übelacker vase for only 5 eur. Yes!
"Zyklon" vase designed by Cari Zalloni and manufactured by Steuler.
Not a thrift find, but a present from my Mum. It used to decorate her bedroom back in the 60's and it's one of the very rare trinkets she's kept from that time. I have been uuh-ing and aah-ing over it each time I came to visit, hinting heavily that it would make a perfect addition to my WGP collection.
I am now happy to report that a few weeks ago I finally managed to wear her down...
A close relative to my West German ceramics. A Dutch owl money box found at the Brussels flea market for 5 eur.
The ever growing collection.
Good thing the Nathan sideboard is so big. There's still plenty of room for more thrift finds. Yay!
