Jo's weekend thrifting

Kim scored a fabulous vintage Herman Miller Eames shell chair. I on the other hand found something a little different. A World War II era Australia Red Cross Society bookcase. Old, chippy, crackled paint with 2 metal and enamel badges at top. Complete with dust and daddy-long-legs spiders. The perfect home for my retro decorating books. I'm just going to clean it and replace the handle and that's it! After I get rid of the spiders. Until then it's living in the garage ... hate spiders!

OMG that is awesome! I'd love to replace my Billy bookcase with something vintage like this.

You ladies always find such interesting pieces when you are out thrifting or raiding the retro shops. I never have the same luck!
