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.
