I Scored at the Thrift Store – Vintage Plaque (and a vacation detour)!

What do you do on vacation?

Do you force your hubby to drive you to a thrift shop?

I did just that a couple of weeks ago in Newport, RI.

Somewhere between touring mansions and eating ice cream, I stealthily programmed the GPS to lead my unsuspecting family to the thrift shop.

Poor unsuspecting guy just drove along until he realized we were not heading back to our hotel!

It paid off since I took home the trophy – literally!


It will fit in nicely with my vintage trophy collection.

I think F. Del Buono, D. Isserlis, G. Lowenstein and M. Weisberg would let me on their winning team, don’t you?


Check out all of my vintage finds.

  1. Yes – I totally ask my hubby to drive me to a thrift shop when on vacation. Most recently we went to Savannah… I drove – He navigated the GPS to a remote section of town to a little shop I found online. Then I was ‘good’ for the rest of the 3 day vacation. It’s a sickness I tell you…

  2. OMG! That’s not a score – THAT’S a SUPER-SCORE!! I love it. I have this wonderful loving cup from a rowing competition I think from 1938. It’s just beautiful!

  3. I always dream of little shopping trips at our vacation destinations, but it NEVER happens! If only I had one little girl, I think I could pull it off. But, having 5 males who have no interest in shopping doesn’t make for a fun time. Congrats on your win! I’m sure you’ve made Lowenstein and Weisberg very proud 🙂

  4. I will have to do that on our next road trip. Usually we drive all day and pull into towns just as stores are closing.

    Love your trophy

  5. Yes I do make him thrift, I think he sort of likes it, but I’ve never programed the GPS, great idea. And the trophy? Well isn’t that the margaRITTA drinking team?


  6. Kelly, you find the neatest things. Great piece for your collection. I always love the thrill of places I have never shopped before.

  7. This post cracked me up. Luckily, my hubbie has voluntarily gone to Flea Markets with me when we have been traveling. I had to read this post to him for I knew it would bring a chuckle.

  8. What a wonderful find! Sometimes you just get lucky, you know? LOVE it! Great addition to your collection…no matter what your hubby thought! xo Diana
