What’s the last thing you might expect to find at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore? Might it be a retro-tastic aqua and metallic gold serving dish like the one above? I was nearly in shock when I discovered this awesome Fred Press glass treasure sitting alongside a bucket of nails and some old door knobs at my local ReStore.
I’m surprised that it was still in once piece. Guess they don’t make ’em like they used to. I admit, the colors and pretty gold metallic drew me in, but the voluptuous shape of the dish and the fun flower graphics made me want to take it home — well that and the bargain basement price.
I foresee this dish filled with tasty snacks at my next party…
…in fact, I think the ReStore wants me to have a party. Why else would it serve me up a shot glass with a sense of humor?
This vintage pink elephant shot glass had a friend (another shot glass that said “bottoms up” with a funny retro graphic) but sadly it must have gone bottoms up one to many times because it had a huge chip in the rim. I always go into the ReStore looking for retro building materials and somehow I always come out with furniture and housewares!
You just never know what you’ll find at the ReStore!
