Vintage Finds of the Week #9: Asian Silk Dress, Philadelphia Clock, Child's Pink Wicker Chair, Glamalite Mugs


Welcome to my vintage finds of the week!
It has been a whirlwind of finding adventures... and we have had a busy week with a celebration of the last day of the dance class I was teaching at Bebe's school, PLUS this is the week of rehearsals for her dance school's year end performance. 
But, I did gather together some of our latest finds...
I struggle with putting a few up for sale!
First there is THE DRESS.
A satin like silk....Gorgeous!

The woman I purchased it from said
it was a gift from her brother when he was in the
service and mentioned Panama.
She was 13 or 14 at the time.
Then there is THE CLOCK.
The clock has a battered face but the image
on the bottom is Independence Hall in Philadelphia
I do believe.

Love it!  We think we may take it to a
clock maker. We do have the National
Watch and Clock museum in our local
area so there has to be someone
nearby who gets them oiled up and ready.
Did you know that HOROLOGY is the history,
science and art of timekeeping and timekeepers?
Yes indeed. See, you learn some stuff
when you visit my blog.
Then there is the CHILD'S WICKER CHAIR.
It is pink! It was calling my name.
Too cute.
Then there is THE BOWL.
From Tuscany.
Since I've been to Tuscany,
this one is a keeper. For now.
Then there are the random
pieces of china and other goodies
like the dollhouse furniture,
but I'm going to highlight one
more retro find...
This Fire King "Glamalite" milk glass coffee
mug set, still in the original metal
carrier. They each have a vinyl coating
on the outside with glitter!
I decided to put them up on eBay after
looking on there to do a little
research. They sell for a great price.
Retro stuff is still hot!
I almost decided against
getting them, too.
Hope you enjoyed a little peek
into my finds...
Enjoy the day!
