I'm drawn to quirky items, especially if they're red and especially if they're kitchen or advertising related. I have no idea where this coin box was used, but the word HONOR pulled me in.
When I enter a thrift store, I always check the linen racks first. No longer easily found, vintage percale sheets are prized. Nothing feels as good and restful on a warm night as slipping between cool, cotton sheets. Chenille bedspreads, found for just $4.50 back in the day, are now scarce, as are vintage pillowcases.
Quilts keep popping up, but 90% are not great. I cannot remember the top, as I bought a "cutter" quilt simply for the backing fabric - whimsical circus animals and dancing marionettes - circa 1940.
A "cutter" quilt was bought just for its backing fabric. How fun!
Until next week, good thrifting!
