I haven’t been thrifting too much lately and when I’ve gone haven’t found a lot of interesting things. Welcome, Friends, to a small Thrift Store Haul that I’ll share with you. The first and probably most valuable find is this water color of Venice painted by Detlev Nitschke a German post war contemporary painter born in 1945. This is a work that is pretty typical. It is quite colorful and depicts an everyday scene that he probably would have witnessed. It was a nice find for under $5. I’m planning to mat and frame it and then hang it with some other watercolors we have of Italy.
This seemed to be garden week at the Thrift Store for me and most of the things I found I’ll be using with plants. Love the resting little angel that will make a great addition to the garden. It’s nice to have a few sculptured pieces for interest.
Here’s a closer look. It’s in pretty good shape so I think it will fit right in.
Also found this great frog. He’s a little worn but somehow that makes him more appealing. He has a broad grin on his face and is obviously pretty laid back. Just the thing for a flower bed.
I’m always looking for great containers and this one was in super shape. The paint is even new so I don’t have to do a thing to it.
Also found this great blue pot. Can’t wait to fill it with something special. Blue and white is a definite favorite and the green accents are very nice.
Last, but not least, is this green chopping board. I didn’t know that commercial kitchens often have color-coded cutting boards that are only used for specific items. Green ones are for fruits and vegetables. This one was still in its original packaging and measures 18″ x 24″ so quite large. It will be a nice addition to my prep area in the kitchen.
So, not a lot, but some interesting things. You just never know what you’re going to find. Happy Thrifting!
