I braved the ridiculous three digit temperatures this past weekend to get some new vintage booty. My brother from Seattle was in town and he loves vintage too so we had to do it right. Started off with what looked to be a very promising estate sale on Friday. Turned out to be lame. We waited in line for 1.5 hours only to finally get inside and find retail prices. Bleck! What a waste of time. I still managed to squeeze out a few smalls because I could not leave empty handed. Then we were off to some thrift stores and an awesome flea market on Sunday.
Here's a sampling of what I picked up. I was attracted to a lot of industrial modern pieces this trip:
Vintage A-Frame Shadow Box
how cute is the little ladder?
Cast Iron Stamp/Seal/Embosser 1940's
Vintage Industrial Flashlight
Extra Large Dansk Kobenstyle Dutch Oven by Jens Quistgaard
1950's Billiards Ball Rack
Mid Century Owl Oil Painting
60's Posters with Cool Graphic Collage
Baby Blue Dominion Fan
Antique Mailbox Doors
Cast Iron Stove Spindle
Old Film Reels
I have an eclectic taste and some things just speak to me. While mid century modern is always my go-to and first love, I also like industrial modern styling. Since mid century seems so hard to come by these days I have to mix it up. Keeps it interesting.
Thanks for looking!
