Mid Century Modern for $14 or Less: Part I

It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of modern design.  However, many genuine mid century items are quite expensive.  If you're a mod-lover on a budget (like myself), this is for you!  In this mini-series of two posts, I will be featuring 14 mid century modern items priced at $14 or less (before shipping).

1.  First, the item that inspired this series: A fantastic set of party spreaders, available for just $5 USD from The Antique and Vintage Wares Adoption Agency on Etsy.

2.  Also from The Antique and Vintage Wares Adoption Agency, a beautiful condiment caddy priced at just $12 USD!

3.  From my own shop, a white Arabia Finland pitcher for $12 CAD.

4.  This set of three roly poly glasses - also from Pillowsophi Vintage on Etsy - is priced at $14 CAD.

5.  For $12 USD, this set of Lillian Vernon lucite napkin rings (available from ModDom on Etsy) can be yours.

6.  WOW!  This gorgeous wood bowl is available from Myra Melinda on Etsy for just $5 USD!

7.  Looking for retro salt and pepper shakers?  How about this awesome set, available for $5.50 USD from Mad Max Vintage Goods?

That's it for now.  Next time: Items 8-14!
