As mentioned in my previous post, the thrift gods have been smiling on me lately and I managed to bring home some super cute additions to my ceramic collection(s).
First off, this retro handle-less Waechtersbach mug, found for 1 eur, and now keeping in check some of my office supplies.
Red seems to be the colour of the moment. As is the 1 eur price tag... This famous Arabia Finland jam pot was also mine for that whopping amount.
This merits a bit of a wider view of the growing Scandinavian collection.
Speaking of Arabia Finland. Say hello to my newest find, which also came home for - you've guessed it ! - 1 eur.
This unmarked ceramic wall plate however was an outrageous 2.64 eur, haggled down from 6 eur with my favourite technique. A large smile and getting the seller to accept the spare change left in your wallet. In this case 2.64 eur.
Pffffff, that's a lot of collecting.
And last but not least, a classic - "weniger aber besser" - Braun design. This 12-cup coffee maker was mine for 3 eur, required some moderate cleaning, and is in perfect working condition.
Of course since taking these pictures over a week ago, I've already acquired more wonderful finds. For which I totally blame this weekend's trip to trendy Antwerpen - and this morning's fleamarket visit...
