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.

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.
