Welcome to "Let's Talk Vintage!"
This week I'm sharing my vintage finds from the weekend... The Hubby and I, with Bebe in tow, went to a crazy, hectic church sale.
They are getting quite professional, these sales, and had a whole section blocked off for the "antiquey" stuff.
I just love the cameo style brooch above. I think it is hematite. I am going to do some more research before I list it... she is a beauty, isn't she?
These Beatrix Potter books are always adorable, always loved. I figured I couldn't go wrong even though they were from the 70's.
Now these were not in the antique section, and I was literally crawling around on the floor looking under tables in the Christmas section because they had put ornaments in bags (most were not old) and I started digging. Happy I did! A holly jolly find!
This arithmetic book is from 1866!
Felter was a pretty smart guy. This book was given to 10 / 11 year olds and they were to use the same book for four years. Looking inside the book, I decided kids were smarter back in 1866.
I digress! I have it listed in my shop, here.
Another holly jolly find! I was happy to bring these two Santa mugs home. I didn't realize how different they were until I got them home.
So far I have three of these for my collection.
I should sell them... tee hee.
Maybe I will during my Christmas in July listings.
These scatter pins were pretty so
they came home with me, too.
I will add them to my BellaRosaAntiques.com
website and to my Etsy shop.
This rooster was calling my name as well.
He is so proudly standing there, isn't he?
He is in my Etsy shop, here.
These two little mid century ornaments are
just too cute. Yep, Holly and Jolly!
And these two vanity pieces looked just right
for "Bella Rosa" ... the original tray is gone but I
have one already in the shop
that would work perfectly,
so they are going to be sold together.
It was hard doing the sale with Bebe in tow but she was really great and she was rewarded with checking out the toy room. We are teaching her to bring her own money and to learn how to use it. I have discovered she doesn't like to buy too much when it is her money.
Smart little bugger!
Here are some features from last week's LTV:
This is what Brocante Treasures found at the Foire de Chatou. I can't even say that but I love what she found!
And Brooke at Creative Country Mom repurposed a folding table into a really cool clock table from a clock she bought at a yard sale. Wowie! She is a newcomer to LTV. Welcome!
And another newcomer, Rita at her Panopoly blog, shared her Jadeite collection. I still love the color of this glassware! Thanks, Rita!
Now it is your turn! Feel free to link up below, if you have a blog post about something vintage, an item you sell, or a project you are working on, we'd love to talk about it!
