Fab Find Friday

Happy Friday everyone – I have to say I’ve been feeling a little bluesy – not the emotional kind bluesy – but the music tunes bluesy.  I thought I’d share one of my favorite tunes with you in this post.  Koko Taylor, who is the Queen of the Blues sings this song which reflects how I felt at the time I found this week’s fab find.   They call me the “Hunter” ! cause I’m always on the hunt for some fab finds, thrifty deals and terrific scores.  But before I show you, I would like to share some terrific news!  I won’t be doing too much blogging in the next coming weeks (please don’t get too excited about that part -hahaha) buuuuuttt.. guess what???  I’m opening a shop  – Yayyyyy !!!!  Yes, finally YourVintage Girl is back in business.   We (meaning me, my sister Amina and our dear friend/ business partner Renee ) have decided to open the second location of Pieces of Time Antiques.  We have a space in new Jersey – and now one in South Carolina.  So I’ll be busy setting up shop, but I’ll touch base with you from time to time – so please – don’t forget about me..  🙂

Ok..let’s move on to my Hunted Item –  I’ve haven’t been getting too lucky lately but just when I was ready to give up shopping at this particular Goodwill, my woman’s intuition decided to give it one more try.  I popped in there, walked straight to the back and look what I found sitting on top of a table – all by it’s lonesome self – waiting for me to strike – the catch that I was after….

O00ooo weeee… ain’t He sweet!!!       A Franco Albini pouff ottoman… Talk about a Teeeeerific Score!!  Remember I already had one that I posted about here.   The price was even of a shocker — $9.75  Can you say WHAT!!!! SHUT THE EFEN DOOR!!!!  – cause that’s exactly what I said…   naturally I gave it a quick inspection.   The only thing wrong was this little paint splash – which will be removed.

Ain’t no  need to hide – ain’t no need to run – cause I’ve got you in the sight of my — Luuuv gun  😉

I love these ottomans  and so does my twin.  She’s been wanting one. .. so now I have one and she has one !! Just in time for our birthday – so pre-Happy Birthday Amina!!  It’s Yours!!  

So… I guess I’ll dub myself the “Hunter”  – thanks to Koko and her bluesy song.  I hope you all have a good-feeling bluesy weekend!  Smooches!

  1. I remember back in the summer when you power washed your porch and had that out there next to the comfy chair with the bright pillows. What a score to find another one! They’re really sturdy enough to take big ol’ feet on them? That’s quality! Congrats!!! Hope your weekend is going well!

  2. Congratulations on taking the leap of faith in yourselves. I’ll be thinking about you and I am so excited for your new business opportunity. You have a great eye and great design talent. I know I would enjoy hearing about the process once in a while. I think the Internet and Blogworld is short of information on the actual process of opening a new shop and so many people are interested.
    The rattan poof stools have a wonderful element of design. Love the way they add a round shape to a space and can be seen through at the same time.

  3. That is great news! Store number 2. I would love to come up for the grand opening. I’m sooo very happy for you ladies. Way to go!!!
    I’ll be a #@!!%%! I don’t know what kind of GoodWill y’all got in S.C.! I think you have clairvoyance big time. I need to find another GW. Kudos to you!!!

  4. I like them too…too nice to be called ottomans, because no feet will be propped on them…maybe a plant or tray. I want one 🙂

I enjoy reading your comments
