Black Friday found us sleeping extra late and then contemplating staying home all day to avoid any of the annoying ultra-consumerist cluster that defines the after-holiday tradition. Fortunately we couldn't stand another whole day at home and made our way to the final hour of a nearby thrift's half-off sale.
I say fortunately because we got some great stuff!
|This school of brass fish "dishes" is likely actually a set of ashtrays, but too good to have left behind.|
|Three Kiln Craft mugs. Check out the mice an cheese being tossed by the cat cook!|
|This Papel mug somehow makes both San Diego and the end of the rainbow seem like places I wouldn't actually want to visit let alone commemorate with a keepsake mug...|
|Janel found these. I wanted to say no, but they're just too perfect, and the cats art actually molded in relief and nicely glazed.|
|We love Pottery Craft. The tall vase on the left may not be PC, but it's got a similar glaze. The pieces to the right, however, are both marked. The middle one is my favorite PC ever so far.|
|The bowl on the right of the last photo is signed via mold marks on the inside, which I've never seen anything like it.|
|Amazing chunky details on this studio pottery vase|
|Our Nemadji collection will soon be out of hand; somebody buy some of these already! This one's on the smaller side.|
|Nice large set of brass candlesticks.|
|This brass quail is threaded at the bottom to be used as a spigot handle. How cool is that?|
