Mid Century Eat In Kitchen

Thrift Score Thursday No. 113

Happy #ThriftScoreThursday my friends. I seem to be running a streak of finding cute little mid-century brass and wood numbers.

Found it at the Market 2 -October 2014

Sunday’s are market days and my husband and I had about 2 hours between places we had to be so we thought we could squeeze in a market we knew of close by. In some of the towns that don’t have regularly scheduled markets the occasional markets are small, maybe in a grocery store parking […]
