yesterday i stopped by the spca thrift store which definitely is in the lead for kitschy finds. it is fun but a little sad to see the cats when you first enter the store. they are in cages, but a happy thought is that they are set free to roam the store at closing time.
i scored four vintage atomic snowflake bowls. i'm a sucker for the 50's atomic patterns.
and these cute cups. i like how they stack.
a whole bunch of wrapping paper for a buck, this being the nicest of the lot.
and a needlepoint kit, 100% linen placemats & napkins.
there were four of these in the store, unopened. the little black & gold sticker makes me think they are vintage, but perhaps that is a faulty premise. i think kits like these are a little funny, but why not!
update: i googled Lansburgh's, the name of the store on the price tag of the needlwork kit, and it is a long defunct family owned department store that was in washington, dc. so the kit is indeed an oldie.
