New Shop Items. Recent Vintage Finds.

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

1950's Bakelite Rotary Wall Phone 

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!

You know, as an artist, I look for that same kind of stuff... Modern industrial, and whatever, odd things that I think might make an unusual display piece, an object not thought of as art, made to be art.

My Great Aunt had an extensive owl collection in the 70's and 80'f. She had that painting, I had totally forgotten until I saw the one you scored. Thanks for the memory jog!
