In an effort to start sprucing up the deck, I went to The Salvation Army on Friday and came home with this:
I purposefully went to the thrift store looking for a coffee table. I rarely have a specific item in mind when I shop second hand and I was a little surprised that the thrifting gods granted my request so quickly. Is there a procedure for thanking the thrifting gods? Lemme know, would ya?
The surface is laminate and I'm assuming it's from the late 50s or the 60s (early 70s?). I've done zippo research but it seems like something produced for an elementary school library.
The best thing about it is the price - $10! So don't feel guilty if you leave me a comment saying it's the most hideous thing ever...I won't cry because it was only $10, yippee!

It caught my eye because I recently bought her big sister on sale at an antique market. Big Sis is currently in my Etsy shop:
McCoy Water Pitcher
Sadly, my brief trip to The SA was my only hunting. The weekend was too busy for any estate sales or antique markets so I'm looking forward to checking out what else is being shared over at Apron Thrift Girl.
