I managed to score a few good finds at Talize this week and I thought I'd share them up here with all of y'all. I try to keep an eye on Talize on a pretty frequent basis just to see if anything interesting is floating around. I'm pretty excited for this summer and yard-saleing to find some good deals to fill in all those empty spaces in the house.
This week's trip to Talize was quite interesting because I got stuck behind a woman who was actually bartering for something at the counter. Seriously. She managed to get the manager to drop the price on a vase with grass from $12 to $9 because some of the grass was bent. I was flabbergasted.
Here's the killer lamp I found...
I have been struggling with flipping this picture for a good week now. I'm giving up. You just have to turn your head or something. Anyway, I picked up this tray, which I think will be good for pickles and cheese and yummy things like that. It was $2.99 and for some reason I had a really hard time convincing myself that it needed to come home with me. It's pretty cloudy in this picture because the glass trays hadn't been cleaned yet, but I assure you it's adorable!
I also got this little cheese tray - I'm in love with the green and orange colours on the centre bit. I've been checking out vintage trays like this in etsy for a while, and am so happy that I didn't have to pay shipping for this baby - just $4.99!
I picked up this clock a couple months ago during Talize's 50% off sale...which made this clock a whopping $2 splurge. I'm in love with this Mad Men-errific clock. The best part? It has a cord. No battery power. I love it and all its vintage glory.
I also picked up this lovely little Atomic-type ice bucket. Again, I almost passed on it, which is crazy because I think it was only $2.99 or something. I haven't decided what to do with it yet, but I think it's pretty darn cute!
