It all began last year when I spotted this lovely vintage orange juice pitcher in a thrift store I frequent regularly. I fell for it right away and then I just about fell over when I saw the price tag: 80 cents!
Despite being the natural collector and curator that I am, I know can't bring everything I love home with me. That's the kind of behaviour that lands you on an episode of Hoarders or something. So, as a general rule of thumb, I try to restrain myself and purchase only the pieces that really make my heart sing!
Well, this one seemed to do just that and I knew it had to be mine.
My Dad, who shares my love of curious collectibles, seemed to agree and bought it for me as an early birthday gift.
Now, this story could end here and be quite lovely on it's own, but it's not over yet. There's more. A few weeks back I was shopping at the same thrift store - this time with my Mom - when I stumbled upon a drinking glass to match! I bought it on the spot for 20 cents. Meant to be? I'd like to think so. xo, A.
