Here are the latest additions to my shop. Be sure to check them out at Kibster Vintage.

School starts for Cadell and I on Monday, so I’m getting organized and mentally prepared for some big changes. I will continue to add items to my shop, so it will be business as usual there. I already have some new things lined up and waiting to be photographed and listed, so stay tuned! There’s also a “summer fun” post coming up, which is a roundup of our summer. Have a great weekend, everyone!

Weekend Getaway

Kelly and I haven’t taken a vacation in about six years, but every so often, we’re able to go for a weekend getaway. We usually venture south along our east coast to a beach that’s more quiet. We were able to go for a long weekend about two weeks ago, and it was SO NICE! We thrifted for two days, went out to dinner, relaxed for a full day, and spent some time on our room balcony looking out to the ocean. It just never gets old.

Just a little post of some things around the house… This has been a great summer so far, and we’ve all been really busy. We’re super excited about some upcoming home improvements too, so I’ll be sure to share those as they happen.

I will definitely be going back to school at the end of August, too. Things will be a little more hectic, but I’m ready to move forward.

Kelly and I also went on a little weekend getaway last week, so I’ll be sharing those photos soon. I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Business has come to a screeching halt, so I’ve gone through my personal collection to try to drum up business. I’m also trying to simplify a bit and do some cleaning to make room for more. I may be going back to school in the fall, so I’ll be busier, but looking forward to some positive changes.

KL Vintage Modern

DanishTeak_IversenPlanterHere’s the latest up for auction at KL Vintage Modern! This is definitely one of my all-time favorite pieces. This is a teak planter designed by Arne Wahl Iversen for Vinde MobelFabrik of Denmark, circa 1961. It features three storage drawers on the left and a planter with removable metal table top on the right side. There is also a slatted shelf on the bottom to hold books, magazines, etc. It’s a beautiful and versatile piece, so be sure to check it out.

Around The House

TeakChairs_Lucy1TeakChairs1I have to share one of Kelly’s greatest find to date; these gorgeous Danish teak chairs. We were in desperate need of some different dining chairs, so we were keeping our eye out for a nice, reasonably priced set. We had been using the Arne Jacobsen Series 7 chairs for a couple years, and 2 chairs just weren’t enough. I loved them, but they were damaged and needed a lot of work. So one day while thrifting (yes, thrifting) Kelly found this set for $80, and brought them home. I almost died when he brought me out to the van and opened the doors. I absolutely love them! I posted the photo above on Instagram, and a wonderful user informed me that they were designed by Arne Vodder! Bonus! The craftsmanship is so beautiful, I can understand why these chairs (and all vintage Danish furniture) have become so desirable. We’ve had them for about a month, and they’re the best dining chairs we’ve had. (This is our 4th set). The others were either too heavy or too rickety. I believe we’ll have these for many years. The search is over for the perfect dining chairs, and we can cross one thing off our list.
