Black Friday fall-out ...

Some of you experienced the infamous Black Friday consumerism experience first-hand yesterday but for a lot of thrifters/pickers it was just the day after turkey and the day before Saturday morning treasure hunting. No matter where you live, the weekends are full of yard tag sales, swap meets, auctions, thrift store hunting and general poking around hoping for that one great find. Whether you are a novice junker, an avid collector or a serious career picker the weekends are not for resting but they are for fun!
Some of the hottest trends right now are household mid-century kitsch. Vintage funky finds may lack the sparkle of a pristine antique treasure but are twice the fun and much easier to live with day to day and perhaps why the popular draw to all things retro!
Collecting to enjoy your treasures is one way to go – but living with your great finds and using them daily seems to fit the current up-cycling trend for a good reason. Reusing an old home-grown find is not only recycling at its best by saving it from the landfill but also cuts down on you not buying off shore mass-produced trinkets no one really needs.
Some great ideas to slip into your kitschy kitchen and put to work are vintage canister, glassware and melmac is always a hit.

Happy Thrifting!

These great finds are all for sale in my kitschy shop
