new vintage

Quite the oxymoron, isn’t it?  “New vintage”.

But that’s exactly what it is.  Today, I have a few new finds to share.  Perhaps you caught a few of them on facebook or instagram.  If not, feast your eyes on what’s caught my eye recently…

Street signs aren’t typically my thing unless of course they are very old with an interesting story, real or imagined.  This ‘no parking’ sign is enamel and seems to have been 2 separate signs at one time.  It came from the rural hills of PA.

Ah, nautical lamps.  I can’t resist scooping these up when I run into them being that we’re in a beach town and all.  Lantern lamps lend the perfect bit of kitsch in a kid’s beach house bedroom, in my opinion.  The shades on these have all been updated.

Something about this chicken weather vane just grabbed me.  Was it the brass?  Or the copper?  I don’t know but I certainly wasn’t alone in my strong feelings for this cutie.  It sold in less than a day after I put in the shop.vintage chicken weather vane

Same with this battered leather doctor’s bag.  Only hours after putting it out did it sell.  That beautiful cracked leather patina is just gorgeous.  I might be a little sad to have let it go.  Sigh.vintage leather doctor's bag

More kitsch in the form of these retro teacups.  They’re just so happy!

I love wiry baskets and vessels.  These letter baskets have just the right detail.  They almost make me want to organize and pay some bills.

File this stencil under the “weird & wacky” category.  ‘Less Talk’.  It sounds so rude, right?  What could this phrase have possibly been used for so frequently that a stencil had to be made?  I can only imagine that it must have been a company slogan.  Any ideas?
