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!
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.
Upon arrival, we walked around the hotel and took some photos…
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.
Here’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.
I 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.
I’m SO ready for spring, and I’m looking forward to adding some plants to my collection. Kelly and I have been working on some shop updates, so I’ll be posting about those soon. We just went to the big Renninger’s Extravaganza last weekend, so we found a few goodies!
