a vintage monday

It’s been a while since I’ve had some good vintage loot to share on a Monday morning. Well, guess what, I found some good treasures this weekend!  I’ll let the pictures do the talking…mostly.

Let me just cut to the chase.  I think this is the coolest thing in the group.  A very old, theater poster for the Wood Theatre which was in Woodbury, NJ (now closed) highlighting Gone with the Wind starring Clark Gable & Vivien Leigh.   Circa 1939.  A Real collector’s piece.  Plus I love the green graphics!  This is why I get up at the crack of dawn on Saturdays.

And while we’re talking graphics, a double sided Guests sign.

More graphics – flounder tournament and minnow bucket.  The #12 will be great framed in a beach house.

I always thought this style minnow bucket would make an interesting wine bottle chiller at a backyard or back bay summertime party.

Lots of wirey old baskets and such.

I think I’ll save this adorable hen basket until next spring.

Speaking of spring, how could I resist a pink galvanized watering can?  I mean seriously!

And then I found a few small items like this mixing bowl. You know I have a thing for mixing bowls even though this one isn’t aqua.  And that glass compote, I just want to load it up with guords for a fall display.

Did you see the toolbox?  I bought this from an elderly man who said it belonged to his father who used it for years.  His father probably made it in the 30s or 40s.  I love stories like that.

So there you have the highlights from the weekend’s score.  There are some other smalls mixed in as well.  I do love the Victorian frame but it needs some work.  What is your favorite find?  And did you find anything good this weekend?

P.S. I stopped by Phantastic Phinds today – both the shop and blog!  The shop because they are now stocking Annie Sloan Chalk Paint for the Philly area.  And the blog because I wanted to talk about how excited I am that they’re now stocking Chalk Paint.  And to share a project.
