In my last visit to Good Stuff Thrift of Fairless Hills, there were a few items that caught my eye. But the big score of the day was definitely this trinket box. I first spotted it while shooting photos for the blog entry and was worried it was picked up by another thrifter. But I came back to find it sitting safe and sound with the other bric-a-brac.
And here are the thrift facts on this spectacular find:
- That romanic scene is a satin print of "Spring" by Rococo artist Boucher.
- The intricate columns and the inside of the box are both lined with red velour.
- There's a delightfully vintage filigree pattern on the inner lid.
- It cost $4.50, which I suspect is a steal given just how lovely this trinket box is.
- I'm putting it to good use.
While I initially thought of listing this piece on my Etsy shop, I think for now it makes for a thrifty, yet regal storage piece for my growing collection of skeleton keys. I don't know... Something about this trinket box says clandestine affair to me, like slipping a secret lover the key to your boudoir.
What do you think?
