mainePosted: October 18, 2009
some days a theme happens when i’m out and about thrifting. usually the theme is “what a bunch of junk,” but occasionally surprises happen. i have a soft spot in my heart (yes i have a heart) for the state of maine and therefore am drawn to anything vintage maine. take for instance this glassware:
will ya look at that? a special shout-out to old orchard beach. i just love vintage frosted souvenir glasses.
state of maine metal serving tray:
and then a mini maine wall plate:
to go with yet another plate found in an entirely different store:
what i liked in particular was the inclusion of “the old salt” in the miniature souvenir plate. perhaps some day i can be a model for “the old maid” on a state’s souvenir plate. i will add this to my life’s goals list.
