Thrifting in Italy

Last week I went back to my home town in Italy and, of course, I could not resist to have a thrifting tour. πŸ™‚

My city is not really the best place for mid century modern design, the only design furniture you can find there are from the beginning of the XX century. There are mainly handmade furniture from local craftsman…sometimes you can find authentic treasures if you like that age!

I don’t dislike it πŸ˜‰

First of all my Favorite find, the sad clown…for some reason I love it πŸ™‚






















I was also lucky enough to find these three ceramic vases, the white one was definitely expensive -15€- compared to the other two…

All together covered three decades πŸ™‚ 50s-60s-70s

and this orange lamp…I liked more the lampshade than the lamp itself

What I really loved, were definitely the frame with the dutch children playing, of course :),

and the old GIANT radio probably from the 20s!

This one was really AMAZING! …and expensive… 420€

But it was such a massive, all wood and probably oak, piece of furniture that It definitely worthed the price!

Because of my childhood memories, I also loved the vintage Fanta bottles…my god, how old I felt!

Also the bike was quite nice! really! If it fitted in my bag, I would buy it πŸ™‚

The funniest thing I saw, was this display cabinet with a “saint” inside…or at least that’s what the label said !! πŸ˜€

I think is quite rare to find it in the north of Europe πŸ˜‰

Sorry if some pic is not perfectly straight…I had some technical problem πŸ˜‰
