Weekly Thrifting Report: Two By Twosday

Happy Twosday everyone! I started photographing the great stuff we found this week, and noticed a theme. What fun!

It all started with this set of Noritake Craft Collection crystal salt and pepper shakers. These are heavy and beautiful, btw.

This set of studio pottery salt and pepper shakers is pretty great with the wine bottle cork stoppers!

We've mostly stopped buying Potterycraft, except we couldn't pass up this set of salt and pepper shakers.
So, wow, three sets of salt and pepper shakers. So often you only find one of the set, or, if you find a set, one is broken. We found a bunch of really cool studio pottery mugs while we were out and about, but only one at a time, so back to the shelves they went!

These two pots are officially unaffiliated, but strike quite a dualistic figure. We'll be holding on to these for the time being.

I picked up this set of cobalt glass votives marked "Marimekko" on the bottom, not knowing they were Iittala! These are the smaller of the Kivi models.
And now, for our final pair, two Blenko amber crackle glass vases! We were in Fullerton for a wedding this weekend, and between Friday and Sunday we hit nearly 15 thrift stores, striking out almost every time. The pinch vase was literally my only find from seven places Saturday afternoon!
Okay, switching gears:

This Victoria Littlejohn ceramic pig trivet isn't the most exciting find, but it's pretty undeniably cute!
Found a bunch of these Made in Japan Alchohol Safe trays including the set on the left to match a large tray Janel picked up while on the East coast a while ago.
I passed on a HUGE Tony Evans raku planter earlier in the week due to it being more than I wanted to spend at the time. I can only assume Janel found this asymmetrical Tony Evans Raku vase this weekend as a sort of Karmic assurance.
While not a thrift find, and destined for our personal collection, I just had to share this Papua New Guinea cassowary bone dagger we received in the mail this week, which is actually closer to a lime spatula or spoon than a dagger. The dark honeyed patina is pretty amazing–much deeper than on any of our other cassowary bone utensils.
