Found the spun aluminum salt and pepper mill ( made in Japan) at the same thrift in Palm Springs. The gold colored finish was badly damaged by the packing tape the store wrapped around em to keep them together. Little spray paint should bring em back.
The scissors/letter opener set were made in Germany. The handle on the opener depicts a 40’s/50’s “Streamliner” train, a “prop” engine airliner and other modes of transportation. The reverse side is a ruler.

I just scored this awesome vintage tension pole lamp. I have been on the hunt for a good one for a long time. This one had the the right look and price. Looks great in our living room.

Snatched up this awesome Umanoff side table magazine rack at the local thrift for $26.

Thanks Nui. I love the look and feel of the hand rubbed finish of the walnut on these pieces.

Recovered from TikiOasis enough to do a little thrifting.
2 bucks for the white pith helmet.

Looking for tiki and found this stuff instead.
Mid century dishware from Royal china “ Star Glow"



Balloon mug from Petit Bar,Paris, Las Vegas and a couple of metal trays from Hula Hatties. I thought the mug was hideous but my wife wanted it.


Edited to add;
Saw another Balloon/Paris mug this evening at my local Savers. Did not say a word about it to my wife. Never seen one before yesterday-feel like I’m being haunted.

Great finds everyone!! I scored this huge C. Jere skeleton ship. They made two versions. A wall version and the tabletop version. This one is a bit rough but I couldn't pass it up for the low low price. Now just to fit it in the bar somehow. Four feet tall!

Dat’s awesome Unca T. Can’t wait to see wat you do with it. I got a cool find at the Tiki Marketplace yesterday but lets savor your find for a bit.
Later
