The Chase

thriftThere's no question I inherited this trait from my Mother, however I love a good thrift store hunt. Yesterday, I found this oyster platter in a neighborhood thrift store. There is something about collecting treasures that have been cherished in past lives that brings me a great deal of satisfaction. It's a re-birth of sorts. I find thrift stores to be excellent places particularly for sourcing sterling silver and furniture.

Past Perfect
2246 Lombard St, San Francisco, CA 94123 / p: (415) 929-2288
(This store formerly had an additional location on Union Street as well. They specialize in Mid-Century Modern pieces. I've scored a great gilded mirror here).
Town School Clothes Closet
1850 Polk St, San Francisco, CA 94109 / p: (415) 929-8019
(Typically a decent selection of housewares, including fine silver and fine china. They almost always have a sale on these pieces).
1350 Van Ness Ave, San Francisco, CA 94109 / p: (415) 409-0088
(Their well merchandised window vignettes always entice me inside. A good go-to for furniture pieces).
