Thrifting Treasures

Today Benny and I went on our usual “thrifting circuit” to the Goodwill store and Out of the Closet.

We picked-up these containers for the Republic of Succulents:
(from left to right) 

  • Vintage Round Aluminum bowl.  It seems to be missing its “hat” so its original use can no longer be effectively fulfilled → it will have a new purpose soon. It has an official looking stamp on the bottom and is made in the good ole’ U.S.A. (Sandy)
  • Vintage Cooper Gelatin Mold.  Its got a “bubble” pattern on the bottom. Maybe from the 1950s? (Gelatin)

Introducing the Republic of Succulents

It is very exciting to start this new venture, which is an intersection of my passions of:

  • Succulents
  • Thrifting (aka Treasure Hunting)
  • Photography (all images on this site where photographed by me)
  • Beautifying Spaces (succulents help add that special something to your outdoor spaces)

How lucky am I? >> I’m thrilled to share my passions with you!
