It’s been all about the Scandinavian lately.

Which, of course, makes the Recycleista happy.
Hey y’all!! How’ve you been doing? I won’t bore you with another ‘why i haven’t been blogging – life crisis – what am i doing with my life’ kind of post. Let’s just get back into what’s important! Thrifting!

Yes, I’ll admit…my thrifting has slowed down a bit. I am trying to avoid the bulky, breakable, hard to ship type items. Can’t you tell from the above picture?!? HA! I laugh so hard I cry.

But yes, I do make exceptions for a good Pentik Finland “Kahvia” coffee canister. Or a Bjorn Wiinblad vase. You do understand. I know you do.
I mean, look at it.

“Duet” vase by Bjorn Wiinblad

How could I resist?
The other items in the picture are a Berggren tile trivet…not strictly Scandinavian but in the Swedish style.
Berggren Swedish Tile Trivet I’ve bought and sold a few of these Berggren tiles and items but this was the first time I saw this one. It translates to “Best of All is Your Own Home”.
The little spice jar is by Knabstrup and is for cinnamon. I’ve had that one knocking around on my desk for awhile so I was glad to finally get it cleaned up and listed.

Well, I’m going to leave you with one last find. I’m keeping this short and sweet so as not to overwhelm myself and to gently ease myself back into this blogging world.
I went to an estate sale and this was one of my scores.

Lenox Butler's Gourmet

It’s a full service for 8 in the Butler’s Gourmet pattern by Lenox. I got it on the second day for 1/2 off. I ended up dividing up the pieces into sets of 4. I just sold my first set of 4 salad forks this morning for $55. What’s sweet is that the set also came with the tray which is also by Lenox. I have that listed separately. I’ve put together some flatware reselling tips and tricks in these posts.
My goal this season is to hit more estate and yard sales!
