Raise your hand if you’ve been reading around here long enough to remember the good old “Gather This” series… Anyone? Long, long ago I used to share favorite finds from various sources, but somehow that series fell by the wayside. Well, I’m excited to revive it again today!
Sometimes when I’m researching a recent thrift find for Thrift Score Thursday, I’ll get sucked down the rabbit hole of awesome similar vintage finds on Etsy and just drool and pine over them all. Vintage globes? So many kinds, each so fabulous! Vintage popup books? I want them all!
So I decided that it was high time I revive the “Gather This” series on weeks when I find particularly inspiring things for Thrift Score Thursday. Perhaps you are interested in where you can purchase your own similar vintage find. Or maybe you just love vintage eye candy. Or enjoy learning about and studying cool vintage designs. Maybe you’ll see something cool in a “Gather This” collection and then recognize it later at a thrift store or in a family member’s home! These are just a few of my lofty ambitions. The vintage pieces I feature might be outside of my typical purchase price comfort zone, but sometimes it’s nice to just appreciate lovely things for lovely things’ sake, you know?
Yesterday I shared my recent Guzzini of Italy lucite pen and mail holder, so today’s theme is “vintage lucite desk accessories”. Goodness gracious, I just love the chunky shapes, mod lines and hard-candy-like appearance of these stunning pieces! Each item is linked to its Etsy listing – if you visit and it has sadly sold out, Etsy will likely recommend similar items so you can discover awesome new things.
11. Ritts Astrolite Mid Century Lucite Bookends via secreteyesonly– I really really love these. Simple shape meets chunky lucite. I want to cuddle with them. If that’s wrong, I don’t want to be right.
I hope you enjoyed today’s new foray into Gather This! Don’t you just want to sprinkle lucite accessories all over your workspace now? Swoon!
