Thrift Store Treasures

I need dishes, glasses, chairs and other specialty kitchen items for my cooking classes.  First I found all my champagne glasses.  Then I found other stemmed glasses that could be used for desserts or appetizers.  And I now have a few more white dishes.  I like white dishes for displaying food.

My latest find are two dining room chairs.  These are a 60's faux Duncan Phyfe style.  I painted and reupholstered to have two more chairs at my table.

  6. Thrift stores and tag and stoop sales are the life's blood of a NYC art department... and now Craig's list. Remarkable what people toss out COol chairs!

  7. Great find, Sarah. You did a super job painting too. It's such fun to search through those thrift shops...I remember finding a set of depression glass plates for practically nothing.
