Vintage Finds of the Week #17: A Hat Stand, Antique Ephemera, Books, and Vintage China

It is that time again, and I'm a little bit
 behind in my posts.... here are
some vintage finds I haven't shared yet!
 
We have been super busy 
getting ready for school and
doing some "end of summer' 
fun things like going to
our local theme park.
 

 
 It was a beautiful day for it.
 We've really had perfect weather here.
 
I just had to share this
vintage swing ride. Aren't
the graphics great?
 
A visual vintage find!
 
Now, here is a wide shot
 of some of my latest treasures:
 


 
A nice, sturdy, wooden hat stand.
I had one similar to this one
and it sold very quickly.
 
 
Beaded Collar.
This one is mixed with pearls
and rhinestones... very lovely
in person. Probably will be listed
in my Bella Rosa shop on Etsy.
 
 
A cozy , cottagey, crocheted
 "Basket" pot holder.
 
I thought this was unique and
brought it home with me.
It opens up kind of like a
basket, too.

To think someone made these.
A lost art for sure.
 
 
Antique Receipts book.
Love the graphic title on the
outside and even better is
the old handwriting inside.
 
 
 
Condensed Milk Jar.
The petite pink roses...
so pretty! Definitely
a great find for my
Bella shop.
 
 
 
Another doll!
I normally don't buy dolls.
She is from the estate sale
I went to recently. You can
 read about my troubles
there, here.

This one needs some
cleaning .... then
some research.
 
 
Fur Collar.
At first I thought this was
for a doll... since I just
sold one this past season.
But, it is about the same
size as the beaded collar so
maybe it is for a child?
Large doll?


I was blessed this buying
season with so many Christmas
goodies. I am set for
the winter... found this
collection of ornies
for a great price. I love
putting them in glass.
They are probably headed
for my retro Etsy shop this Fall!
 
 
 
3 News Printer Blocks.
 These are unique ... they look
like they were for a comic:
"Little Gracie Note"

 
More research!
 
 
The hubs found this wooden
box filled with old spark plugs
from the early days of autos.
I am giving him the car
stuff ... I just love the little
drawer!
 

 
and this, this lovely antique
book is my favorite find. We
paid way more than I wanted
to but it was too nice to
walk away from. Sell or keep?
That is the question!
 
Hope you enjoyed my finds.
 
 
I'll be back early next week
for "Let's Talk Vintage!"
Be sure to link up
starting Tuesday mornings
at 9 AM. The link party goes
for six days.

Your pearl collar takes me back to my youth. I think I still have mine tucked away in a box. '-)
Happy Pink Saturday!

For some reason your treasures this week just pricked my heart. I think it's because they look like things my grandmother, Ga, would have had. Just lovely! I just can't seem to find any of those vintage ornaments....so envious!!

Such great finds! That collar is really pretty!

How darling the little crocheted piece is! My husband's granny has been cleaning out her house and is sending me a whole box of crocheted doilies made by Kyran's great grandma, I'm so thrilled that I'm getting them and I agree, a lost art!

The milk jar is gorgeous! Hope you're having a lovely weekend!

HI Jill,
Looks like you've been busy and have had some end of the Summer fun! Great finds but I have to know, how in the world did you know that the gorgeous little lidded cup is called a condensed milk jar?! I am impressed and would have never known that is what it is. :)

You found some great treasures for sure! I found a little fur collar like that and sold it also! I think the hat stand is my favorite as well as the old box. I lean towards the rustic but love the "pretties" too! Have a great week!
