A sad day in thrift-ville

Sadly, I lost a couple of great thrift finds this past week. As you know, you snooze you lose, and my lack of funds lately has kept some really awesome things on the shelves and out of my grubby little hands in this month of March.

I’d been involved in a pretty serious relationship with these lamps. Having spent three luxurious afternoons strolling to visit them at the Furniture Market in Astoria. I was having trouble committing to their large size and hefty price tag. It’s probably for the best, I clearly have a lamp problem. I hope they went to a very happy home where their new mommy and daddy have the space to display them proudly. Hopefully with a new large cylinder drum shade like this one that I had all picked out and in the shopping cart. (silent rolling tear)

West Elm narrow leg vanityThis chair and I were not meant to be either.  I’d only been on one date to visit him at the Housing Works down the street, but I really saw potential.  I allowed myself to dream of quiet evenings lounging in its burnt orange luster  while sitting at my desk, writing blog posts and browsing the interwebs for the perfect drawer handles for its partner. Someday maybe he’ll come back to me…

So here’s to the hope of spring folks, and may you never let the ones you love get snatched up by some other bargain loving thrifter. But if it should happen, may they be treated like the treasures they are for the rest of their days.

Happy trails, thrift loves, happy trails!
