Another’s Treasure September 11, 2012Posted by stuffilikenet in Uncategorizable, Uncategorized.
Because I live in the most beautiful city in the world, I may have a somewhat jaundiced view of the world at large. This Tiffany-style rooster lamp may once have been the cherished possession of somebody’s grandmother, for pointed example. This delightful wicker flamingo may have been equally cherished by another.
I found both of these treasures in a thrift shop window (the same window, by the way) in the urban hub of the North Valley, Yuba City. It’s right next to a Thai restaurant that closes just before we get there, every time. At nine o’clock on a Saturday night, you would think that restaurants in a sleepy little town would still be hungry for custom, but you would be deceived.
