to catch up…Posted: October 13, 2011
these are a few items i acquired in august.
this is a small souvenir plate from stavangerflint norway, approximately 7″.
that is one HUGER-than-huge teak tray with which i will serve HUGER-than-huge cocktails
to my guests if i had ’em to myself. stamped “NORDIKA” made in sweden on the back – i couldn’t find any info on it. i’m pretty sure it’s old. i’m pretty sure it’s cool. i’m pretty sure i was luckier than lucky to find it in goodwill for $3 cuz there ain’t been sh*t in there of late. i think the east coast is dried up of good loot. pickins = slim.
what else? a porsgrund (more norway) fish trivet, a small green heller plate (7-1/2″) to go with my bigger heller plates i use all over the place as trays and another set of danish salt and pepper shakers similar to ones i already own, only one is bigger than the other in this set.
and honestly, that is just about it.
i’ve mostly been getting good vintage clothing – sweaters and stuff for fall, only it’s been too warm (not complaining) to wear most of them. if the mood hits me (doubtful,) i’ll try and photograph some of them.
speaking of clothing, didja see bill cunningham new york? oh how i loved that movie, oh how i love that man. they don’t make ’em like him anymore. them’s good people.
