New Vintage Goodies


I think it's awesome how many of my fellow scrapbook and blog buddies also love vintage goods and how I can talk about both on my blog and not bore too many visitors! ;)

I had the chance to go on a vintage treasure hunt and the Raleigh Flea Market last Saturday and picked up some fun goodies that I thought I'd show you.

I believe I mentioned that I found an old school desk for just $10? I did! I couldn't believe what a steal it was! I don't always get that lucky! As I always say, "You never know what you will find!"

Isn't this desk cool? I know this goes back before my elementary school days because we had a protective laminate type coating on our desks and this one doesn't. For now, I plan to just clean it up and display it in the house somewhere. At some point I may repaint the metal portion to get rid of the rust.

I also found the following items to list in my Etsy shop!

These soda crates will be listed for $20 a piece. I love that they are in great shape, still colorful and easy to read. The yellow box is stamped from Charleston, South Carolina, I believe from 1964. The red one is dated 1979 from Temple-Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Look at this unique treasure...a 1950's 'Bandages' apothecary jar from a doctor's office. Until someone snatches this up from my shop, I think I'll display it in our bathroom! This will list for $39 since these are hard to come by.

I love this old metal American Family Scale! The food images on it are so fun and it's in great shape! This one will list for $22.

How about a vintage wood coffee grinder? This one is from Germany and is very clean...the owner must have given up on grinding their own beans! ;) I'll list this piece for $25.

Here's the last one...a fun little cheese box with a leather strap attached. This box was made before Kraft and American split into two separate companies. It's in great shape and has a lovely patina. This little goody will list for $18.

I hope you enjoyed seeing a preview of the goodies that will be listed in my shop as soon as I can get them up. If you are interested in any of them or have a question, please leave a comment and I'll try to get back to you quickly. :) Kathy

You are such a vintage treasure hunting master :) That desk immediately reminded me of the Amish school house we visited on our recent trip :) Awesome finds.
