Thrift Picks, Week of 2/17/13

Hey, vintage lovers! In the spirit of my New Year’s Resolution of regular blogging, I bring you my best finds over the last week, 2/17/13. I’m hoping I can keep up the good work!

Scored my first piece of “Historic” Blenko, a Wayne Husted 565 Ship decanter for only $10 at an auction warehouse sale. Can’t believe it hadn’t been snapped up yet when I found it.

At the same warehouse sale I got four of these 1970s Botium chairs for only $200. Designed by Rud Thygesen and Johnny S°rensen, they’re constructed of sturdy laminate bentwood and have the original wool cushions. I love the shape and they look awesome in the living room. I’ll sell the other two on Craigslist.

And possibly the best find of the week, other than the chairs, a massive ceramic bowl from Design Technics!

In other news, the Lalique Madonna sold in less than a week. Can’t wait to find another one!

So my goal of 100 new listings for February will likely not be met, but I have added 60 new super awesome listings at Temple of Vintage.
