Thrift Store WIN: John Derian Tray!

A few weeks ago, I promised to share some amazing thrift store finds, and then promptly failed to do so. Bad blogger, bad! Don't we all read so we can hate-crush each other's amazing finds? As in, I love that thing and I hate that I didn't find it first! Right. So without further ado, here is the crown jewel in last month's thrift store haul: A handmade glass John Derian "Thank You" tray!! This is NOT from one of his Target lines--this is the real, signed deal. It retails for $66.00, and I paid $2.29. WIN!

See more beautiful pieces from John Derian at his beautifully designed website.
All John Derian designs are vintage images reproduced and decoupaged by hand onto hand-blown glass. I love the muted colors, scientific themes, and vaguely somber landscapes. Here are some more examples of his work:

For some reason, it makes me think of Beirut.
John Derian Shells Platter - Sold Out
I know John Derian isn't brand-spankin' new--there was a huge craze for his work a few years ago--but I've never owned a Derian piece, and I'm even more thrilled that I found it for a pittance! What was your best recent thrift store score?
