Unfortunately, the vintage stuff was priced pretty high, as in prices closer to those in antique malls. So I took a pass and instead, honed in on this:
A plant hanger made of turquoise-colored acrylic beads. It measures 42" in length.

I use the term "thrifty acres" in my blog in honor of the locally-based hypermarket chain, Meijer - in years past, it was known as "Meijer Thrifty Acres". Thus, the original tag on the plant hanger made me smile:
Couldn't get a clear shot of the tag, but it shows that my purchase had been made in Hong Kong. Judging for the looks of this tag, I'd say that the plant hanger had been made in the 60's or 70's.
Groovy or goofy? Like I said, it can be a fine line, but I liked the color of the beads. Plus, the two bucks I paid was much more in line with my budget than the outrageous prices the seller was charging for her other vintage goods!
