Let's Talk Vintage #72: My Latest Vintage Finds

Welcome to Let's Talk Vintage!
This is where vintage bloggers
(whoops, vintage lovers) gather
together to "talk" about their
latest finds, projects, collections,
If you are just visiting, wonderful!
We are happy you're here!
That's why we do this every week.

Today I'm sharing some of my latest "finds."

In the middle of winter I dig
through storage bins to see what
I stashed away last year!
This Little Red Riding Hood children's book
is very old.. and the inside is much worse
than the cover. I may just frame the cover as
the colors of the chromo-lithograph print
are still pretty vibrant.

If it's pink and vintage, I'm probably going
to buy it. This heavy ironstone style
crock matches perfectly with my
LuRay Pastels dinnerware collection. 
It is marked OVEN WARE on the bottom.
I'm currently having a "Sell it"
or "keep it" dilemma. It is
for sale currently but if it
doesn't sell, I might just keep it!

This is a "what the heck is it" piece.
I'm guessing for tobacco but the two
ends have me perplexed. I will do
some research on it.
I thought an artist might like the cover of this
art book. Someone removed all of the prints 
inside already but the cover may be of
interest to frame. I think the lady on the
front forgot to finish getting dressed.
Either that or she got tangled up with
a Christmas tree...
I'm not sure if I shared these
before... they'd been sitting on
my desk for weeks. I love the
pink combined with the pastel
bling. They remind me of a tropical
island. Or maybe they are
 or cherry blossoms. Still sweet!
not antiques, they are from the early
1970's and would fit well into my
Antique Retroactive Etsy shop.
Before they sell I want to actually'
put them together. All of the pieces are
there in each box, but who'd want to
miss out on all of that fun?
I'm curious to see if there would
be any interest in this old
promotional photo of Rin-Tin-Tin.
I will have to research this. I always
thought Rin-Tin-Tin was a 1950's
TV show but you can see it is printed
with signatures and a date of 1930.
You all remember this guy, don't you?
Speedy Delivery! Speedy Delivery!
I've been digging through my storage
box of ephemera. I have one more
photo to share with you today.
This photo always gives me the "WOW" factor.
The age and the style, the subject... old fair
or circus clowns or were they a Vaudeville act?
Maybe both...
I'm still pondering which site to sell it
from. Ebay? Etsy? I'm going to do more
research and see which direction to take.
Thanks so much for taking a look at my
latest "attic finds!"
Now let's see who's
featured from last week:
Joy of A Vintage Green shared
these awesome chalk paint
boards and chalk paint stencils.
Love them!
romantic Valentine's day date night
with us. A black and white movie is
definitely vintage!

and Melissa of Melissa's Antiques
share some of her treasures
from an auction she attended.
Jadeite anyone? These are just
what she considered the bonus
pieces to her day!
her latest finds and projects...
but my favorite is this wonderful
shelf she painted and distressed.
I love the galvanized pails with
numbers on them too.
But wait! I have one more "at
the last minute" feature that I
didn't mention in my LTV email:
I just loved Meg of My Vintage Life's
mercury glass photo frame and
couldn't help but notice ballet
shoes in her display! *LOVE*
Thanks so much, everyone!
Each week you do not disappoint!

Thank you Jillian for featuring my small stencilled chalkboards, a lovely surprise. Thank you as well for Lets Talk Vintage 72, always a pleasure to visit and join in. Have a great week.

Hi Jill--I think your "what the heck is it" is a pipe bowl. The narrow end would have fit into a pipe stem. I have a similar one (German) and the stem is a good two feet long, made out of a slender tree limb. And I think the two fellows in your photo are wearing "black face" and were probably part of a minstrel show. Just two thoughts off the top of my head :) Thanks for the party!

Jill those earrings are beautiful. I enjoyed seeing the old celebrity photos especially Rin Tin Tin. Thanks for hosting.

Cynthia said...

Thank you for the party! I love seeing what everyone has to share. This is my first time linking, and I am still learning about the rules of blogging. I do not know how to "link back" to you on my post. . .I'm sure I'll get that figured out eventually. Thank you again! You have a lovely blog.

Hi Jill, loved the things that you shared and the features are great! A bit jealous over Melissa's jadite! :) Thanks for the party.

Gina @ VictorianWannaBe said...

Hi Jill, I absolutely love the Little Red Riding Hood book! It's too bad the old children's books are always in bad shape, but good that the kids actually read them though. :) The Peter Rabbit puzzle is adorable too!

Deanies Stash said...

Jillian, I love the stuff you keep pulling out of storage! I have made a few discoveries myself in my junk filled garage.. LOL!

Thank you for the party, Jillian!

I KNEW I'd seen that pipe configuration lately---it appeared when I was googling "shepherd on a vase" or some such the other day.


Needs quite a bit of hither-and-yon to complete, with that strange angle of bowl-to-stem.

I especially love the pale pink milk glass. Reminds me to get out the set I received as a gift years ago---place settings for eight, I think, and we've only ever used the goblets at Christmas.

Thanks for sharing your lovely treasures with us @Vintage Charm!

Great features! The Little Red Riding Hood book is amazing. And the pink crockery piece reminds me of a cake plate I saw in a thrift store last week that was chipped :( It was the same shade of pink.
