I'm fairly addicted to vintage stores. A little shop on MacDougal Street recently lured me in. I poked around and thought it was a little overpriced. On my way out the door I stopped at the scarf rack where a narrow rectangular wool paisley scarf caught my eye. I said to myself, I said, "These look like hand-rolled edges. I wonder if this is an Etro." And sure enough, there it was, the familiar black and beige Etro label from Milano. The scarf was marked at $20 (not overpriced) and I got it for $15.
I love the apple green color in the depth of winter -- it reminds me of spring. I suppose I could sell in on EBay for more than $100, but I like it!
I also recently found this candle holder. It would be great in a garden, but for now I like it on the table illuminating the lilies. (That sounds like the title of a John Singer Sargent painting.)
It's made of bronze-color metal and panes of light green frosted glass.
Good, no? I found it at the Salvation Army on Eighth Avenue. $2.99.
