Hello and welcome to Let's Talk Vintage!
This week I am sharing some unique vintage finds.
Things you just don't see on the hunt everyday.
Finding something different, no matter the value, is always a bonus for me.
An opportunity to learn something new.
The crystal beaded necklace above is not your average piece. It intrigued me because it was one long consistent strand with a large bead on each end. Turns out it is a lariat. You just simply fold the one end over the other and let it dangle or get creative and try a double wrap around. Love it!
Then we have the cast iron double ink well. So unique! There's a tray for your pens and the two squares slide open to reveal the glass ink wells.
Then we found what I believe is a leather bound photo album or scrapbook. Since it is leather, it's not your ordinary run of the mill item.
And lastly, a find we have saved for a few years, this Grace Putnam baby doll. Definitely not something you see everyday. They were the first "realistic" looking baby dolls back in the 1920's. If you are a collector, I apologize for saying this but this one looks a little creepy! I'm still researching this one. I'm finding information on them but sometimes it is conflicting.
Donna of Distressed Donna Down Home worked some magic on this primitive chest.
Rita of Panopoly shared how she cleverly used her newly expanded booth space.
And Gina of Victorian Wanna Be shared her amazing Easter themed collections... from milk glass eggs to gorgeous ephemera pieces.
Now it's your turn.... Let's Talk Vintage!
