Design and style from a Scandinavian perspective

Thrift shopping at it's best

I went on a little thrifting tour yesterday, and made some great finds! The plates below are from Rörstrand and Upsala Ekeby, the vase is a 31 cm high Holmegaard Carnaby in mint condition, and the magazines are Swedish youth magazines from the fifties, sixties and seventies.
I also bought a school book on local history, home-making and nature (odd mix, isn't it?), printed in 1960 with lots of cute illustrations, but I must have left it in the car 'cause I can't find it now, so I will have to show you that some other day.

All in all, I spent something like $ 15. The vase alone is worth around $ 100. So I'm one happy thrifter right now!

    maggienikole: yes, that is exactly what this felt like, a hidden treasure out in the middle of nowhere!
    Lina: Sorry, but i can't tell you where i found it cause then everyone will go and there will be nothing sweet left. All i can say is that it was in a very small village about ten miles from Stockholm, that has no less than three flea markets!
