Thrift Store and Flea Market Finds

I went to a large flea market on Sunday. I am collecting items from the 60’s and 70’s in a wooden Larkin cabinet that my father-in-law gave us when we moved into this house. I am trying to do a kind of color story because I saw something on pinterest featuring red, orange, yellow, black and white and I like the way it looked. So on Sunday I was looking for orange items and yellow items. For orange I found a really neat tin and plastic toy typewriter. For yellow i found a yellow handled egg beater which I love. I took some pictures showing how they are arranged in my cabinet. I also included the red group which shows a Dansk pot that I found at the thrift store a few weeks ago.

I also stopped by the thrift store yesterday and found these nesting wooden Japanese Kokeshi dolls in a $4.00 bag. I had a set of Russian nesting dolls when I was a child so they are nostalgic for me.
