Mid-century Vintage Fans: LOOKIE WHAT I FOUND!
Advertisements [?]
I was up in Lake Tahoe at a funky little shop that raises funds for the local hospital and saw this beauty out of the corner of my eye as I was walking out the door. I literally stopped dead in my tracks -- I couldn't believe what I was seeing.



I walked over to get a closer look and found that it was in near pristine condition -- no wear on the gold work, and the glass had no scratching/clouding. I checked the price tag, prepared to have a small heart attack at what they were asking, and found it was selling for a whopping $10!!!

I swept it up in my arms and hurried to the cash register, afraid someone was going to discover they had a treasure on their hands and snatch it from me.

The cashiers were two old gals who wondered aloud to me why on earth someone would want it since it was kind of ugly and old-fashioned. :D I just nodded and smiled, paid my ten bucks and got the hell out of there as fast as I could.

I just LOVE it when I score something so fabu at the thrift shops!!! :loveya: :loveya: :loveya:

If you have any vintage treasures you've found, post some pix! I love looking at other folks vintage finds.
