I love second-hand stores and the search for cheap beautiful treasures for my home! And I´m lucky to have a great second-hand shop in my neighbourhood where I always find something nice, the prices there are also ridiculously low. What I ´m searching for these days are ceramics and pottery, and I´ve found a lot of beauties lately. Let me share a few of them with you and show you how nice it looks when you mix old treasures with new. I think it´s an great and afforable way to create a cool style + add more personality to the home. You also get unique items which is a good thing these days where everyone has the same products… : )
– One of my favorite; The tea pot from the Norwegian A/S Egersunds Fayancefabriks Co. (made between 1963-69). What I paid: 25 NOK! ( I also bought a matching cream mug that´s not in the pictures 10 NOK)
– The white little vase (as I have used as a tea light holder) was only 10 NOK
– The tall “bottle” on the table was also only 15 NOK! Perfect as a vase or just a sculpure.
Photo 2/3: Another find are two of these brown cream jugs(?) as I here use as a vase and a sculpure (below). I love its shape and colors! I actually met an old lady in the second-hand store when I bought these, that told me that they are very old. Maybe you have more information about this mug? I would love to know! Price: 15 NOK pr. mug.
Great finds, right?
Do you like second-hand stores? What do you usually look for?
