July Good Score!

Good Score! is a monthly feature here at Red House West highlighting our readers’ secondhand finds.  If you scored a great bargain at a thrift store, found a treasure on the side of the road, or discovered a one-of-a-kind gem at a yard sale, we’d love to hear about it! Please send a picture and a brief description of what, where and how much to redhousewest@gmail.com -OR- use the hashtag #rhwgoodscore on Instagram and the last Friday of each month we’ll share a few highlights.

From Judy:

My dear pal from high school days scored two of these 1972 Marc Chagall by Georg Jensen plates for $5 each at an estate sale and sent one to me for my happy 76th!

From Kori:
I found these bedsheets at the St. Vinnie’s off 11th in Eugene.  I don’t normally buy bedding at thrift stores but this set was so awesomely retro & in perfect condition that I couldn’t pass it up (and of course I gave it a good wash in hot water when I got it home).  I love its 70s vibe, the geometric pattern, and the colors.  There’s no tag on the sheets, but they appear to be commercially made.  Simon only kind of likes them.

From Robert and Tiffany:
We found this Nancy Corzine Kimberly side chair with matching ottoman (not pictured) for a tiny fraction of the full retail price. It was on consignment, it was online, and had reached its last price cut. The photos on the Web site looked dreadful, but something told us Nancy Corzine couldn’t make anything dreadful. In person, the consignment shop’s fluorescent lighting didn’t do it any favors. It was very hard to envision it sitting in our living room. The comfort of the chair however was excellent, and the upholstery impeccable. It’s petite and wonderful. We’re very glad we decided to bite, as it quickly felt right at home in a sunny corner of our living room. We’re also glad we’ve taken the time to familiarize ourselves with high-end manufacturers, as Nancy Corzine’s name tipped us off that we had to check out this chair. You never know when you’ll stumble across a finely-crafted piece of furniture languishing in the corner of a warehouse.
As always, thanks to everyone for submitting their Good Scores!  We love seeing what you’re finding!  Have a terrific weekend and check back on Monday for a new post from Katie.

    At first I thought that plate was a “plate palette” like Bonnard used when he painted. Such nice colors. And that cat looks a bit like our beloved rescue cat who died a few years ago. She looks a little suspicious of those sheets, as our cat would have been. But they are a real find as is that chair. It’s so hard to find a stuffed chair that’s both small and comfortable and presentable. This one seems to be all of those.
