I never know what I'm going to come across when I go to my nearest ReStore. I go looking for a vintage gas stove to use in my planned kitchen re-do. I haven't found what I am looking for yet, but I always come across something from the mid-century time period that is just begging me to save it. Sometimes it is as little as a vintage metal light switch plate, which sells for a whopping ten cents, sometimes I find light fixtures, like the vintage pull-down brass fixture that I got for $5 (which is now in storage). My most recent visit yielded the above treasures. Two ceiling light globes. I really like the top one with the great detail in the finish. I can also really appreciate the simple linear design of the one pictured on the bottom. I got away pretty cheap with these. $3.50 for both, another piece saved from the dump.
