Lovin' the picks so far...

TOHS has been sorting through some of the acquisitions gleaned from various sources over the past week. Here are some faves:

Pristine 50s Lustro Ware kitchen canisters in canary yellow, Aunt Jemima cruet, Japanese kitsch fruit person, fabulous vintage tablecloths and hair nets - what a mix - but just look at the graphics on those hair net packages.

Called into the outwardly impressive 'Goodwill' thrift (charity) store in Clermont today. It is a very slick operation out back with a covered drive-through donation doorway - always manned by a very efficient team. The store was packed as it was raining, and had the disappointing musty smell of - charity shop. The shop looked a little chaotic compared to last year, and could do with a good sort-through and letting go of the real, real junk to re-invigorate it - perhaps a bit of the old Portas touch required.
