My Thrifting Bucket List….Revisited

Back about a year and a half ago, in October 2012, I wrote a post about my thrifting bucket list. This list is comprised of items that I’d like to thrift once before my thrifting days are over.
This was the list back then:

“Let’s see..other items on my Bucket List:
  • Cathrineholm – hopefully the Lotus pattern. I’ve found one plain piece of cathrineholm before but not the popular stuff.
  • Curtis Jere sculpture or wall hanging.
  • Oneida flatware Paul Revere pattern
  • Dansk flatware Fjord pattern. Okay, maybe this one doesn’t count..cause I actually found some once. It was in a baggie at Goodwill in the hardware section. Hubby said he picked it up and looked at it, then put it down. I found it a few minutes later, saw the IHQ and grabbed it. It was years ago, before I knew anything about anything. Fortunately we put it on auction and did pretty well. Now that I know flatware and could do better…I want to find it again. 
  • Pendleton Navajo jacket
  • Vintage Ralph Lauren sport-theme sweatshirt or jacket.
  • Georg Jensen sterling anything.”
 
Of course, long time blog readers will recognize that I found at least one item on that list: The Curtis Jere wall sculpture.  (see photo above)
So here is my new, revised list. Remember, I’m choosing things that are POSSIBLE to be found, not once-in-a-lifetime-there-are-only-6-in-existence-rare type things.
I’m also gonna add some things that weren’t on my Bucket List but should have been, but I already found them. lol. 
Well, it makes sense in my own mind. 
  • Cathrineholm – hopefully the Lotus pattern. I’ve found one plain piece of cathrineholm before but not the popular stuff. (Still a good one. Still haven’t found any.)
  • Curtis Jere sculpture or wall hanging. (YAY!!)
  • Oneida flatware Paul Revere pattern (Not sure why I thought this was so special. I’ve found a ton and there are plenty o’ patterns that sell better.)
  • Dansk flatware Fjord pattern. Okay, maybe this one doesn’t count..cause I actually found some once. It was in a baggie at Goodwill in the hardware section. Hubby said he picked it up and looked at it, then put it down. I found it a few minutes later, saw the IHQ and grabbed it. It was years ago, before I knew anything about anything. Fortunately we put it on auction and did pretty well. Now that I know flatware and could do better…I want to find it again. (Yeah, that would still be cool)
  • Pendleton Navajo jacket (ditto)
  • Vintage Ralph Lauren sport-theme sweatshirt or jacket.
  • Georg Jensen sterling anything.” (Well, I did find some GJ stainless flatware…but I’d still like some sterling. Jewelry would be fun)
  • Dansk peppermill
  • Russell Wright flatware (got this from a commenter on my last post)
  • Big E Levis  (Should have been on my list, but we found ’em)
  • Finel enamel bowl (Just found the hearts one..see next post down)
  • Zoo-line Animal Figurines
 
I guess that’s it for now. Now, I’d love to hear from you! What’s on  your bucket list??

  1. A thrifting bucket list you say? I have a very long one. Must finds include California artists like the Ackermans (found my first this year, but I am greedy and want more). Lagardo Tackett studio pottery, but a fish platter is what I dream of. Doyle Lane pottery and more Heath. This is the very abbreviated list 🙂
