While en route to a mini-vacation to the ocean earlier this week, my eagle eyes spotted a church "nearly new" shop in a town near the beach.
On the way home, I informed my husband I'd like to stop at the little shop. It had been in existence 55 years, a very friendly worker informed us. That's a long run for a thrift shop! The church's mission projects benefit from proceeds of all the items sold.
Most of the items were nicely displayed, sparkling clean, and upscale. There was a small room in front and a bigger room in the back. That's where I spotted my new found treasure-----a glass and brass nick knack glass-enclosed shelving unit. It happened to be quite dusty and up on the top shelf in the back room.
(Looking down into it through the glass top. Isn't that a cool shot?)
Even though a lot of interior decorators now consider brass obsolete, it still appeals to me. The best part of the dusty unit was that it had little feet and could be used on a counter instead of being hung on a wall.
For $12, I couldn't resist, although that is more than I usually pay for anything in a thrift shop. Once home, it got a sudsy washing and was laid down on a towel on the counter to dry.
When I went to take photos of the unit for this post, my own reflection, or my fingers, or images of the camera kept showing up in the mirrored back of the rack. Let me tell you, it was quite a challenge to get good shots.
The little glass shelves now hold my storyteller collection. If you would like more information on this collection , check out a post on it titled Native American Art from Clay.
