Today's online thrift-site finds

So today I broadened my search to PEI.  There can be found some lovely items, including:


... this chandelier.  I love it.  I only wish I could put it in a suitcase and take it back to NL with me... think they'll still be a hot style item in a few years when I move back to the Maritimes?
Now this next item might look a little ho-hum:

... but its true value is revealed when you flip open the desktop:

Aside from the fact that I am just dying to dust it, I rather like this little desk.  This would give a home office a lot of character.

Now, this surprises me.  Reportedly Gerd Lange originals from West Germany (the ad even shows the manufacturer's stamp), this style of chair is so current:


Couldn't you just imagine them gathered around a certain harvest table?

I have my eye on this bed (two available) as an item for a future PEI cottage.  Looks like L.M. Montgomery herself might have slept on something like this.  That cozy wool blanket is calling to me on a chilly night like tonight - luckily I have one just like it upstairs!

Well, that's it for today.  Let me know what you think of these finds!

I think LMM might have owned that typewriter too! Love these finds, they are all quite fashionable - I will have to do an Ottawa post just for you!
