I’m a bit behind on sharing vintage hauls lately, so in order to catch up, I’ll share all as one Holiday Vintage Thrift Haul Spree. With everyone else Christmas shopping the last couple of months, I had thrifting on my mind, and even an estate sale in my own neighborhood. I’m very pleased with all the “haul-i-day” finds. Not all are vintage. I get caught up in buying because I like it and plan to sell it. Then I forget it isn’t vintage.
Such is the case with the next 3 items. I’ve been finding lots of shower curtain rings lately, and I buy them if they’re a bit unusual, but $2 a set is the most I’ll pay.
Silver Shower Curtain Rings $1.99
I thought these were pretty too.
Another item…not vintage, but pretty. $1.00. Found at the local estate sale.
Bought for $1 at same estate sale and sold. I downloaded the photo from Graphics Fairy to make it look even prettier.
Quite a pretty brass candlestick…I like to sell these as a lot, even if mismatched. Paid $2.
Vintage Needlepoint compact found at same estate sale for $3. Available
Shadowbox shelving unit and the one following were bought together at the estate sale for $10. A lot! And much more than this cheapskate likes to spend, but I was very taken with the items below. I will sell the 2 separately.
These little brass pieces were made in Holland and are collectible. These are about 1-1.5″T.
Also from the estate sale…I buy glass crystals when I see them, both to sell and/or refurbish what I’m selling. Paid $2. See those white cloth things? See a close-up below~
What are they? In the same sack together, but not sure how they are used.
Vintage cassette case (available) found in the trash a few days after the estate sale. Hoping it was full of diamonds, but no such luck. It made me sick that they were also throwing away a beautiful mahogany 4-poster bed, but since we don’t have a truck, we couldn’t get it. I hope someone rescued it. Why don’t people donate? I’ll never understand it.
The next 2 items were found at a local antique shop (The Brass Bear) during Christmas. Paid $1.50. I thought this Filigree Brass Box was a bit unusual. Available.
This pretty piece is marked “Hull Art Pottery.” The seller labeled it “Southern Belle Planter.” There is a bit of paint wear, but I saw 2 others in the same store (different booths) that had much more wear, and theirs were higher. I paid $9 for this. I think I may have made a mistake buying it, but I liked it. We’ll see. Available.
The below is an Anton Pieck box purse, popular in the 70’s. Found at Hoover Salvation Army, it is in surprisingly good condition. Paid $2.99. Available.
Found at the Hoover Salvation Army…this cool retro telephone. Paid $3.99. They make repros from this design, but this is the real McCoy. There are a couple of cracks in the casing base, but I don’t think this is a major flaw.
Found these wicker bells at Lovelady Thrift for $1.99. I totally LOVE them, but should I paint or leave as is? The bow needs to be changed, but even the “fruit” looks pretty good yet.
The next 4 items were found at a new thrift store in Bessemer…the Tupperware dispenser set below. Paid $2.99. Available.
An attractive wooden sconce. Paid 1.99
A Valentine heart wreath, never used…paid $1.99 (keeping)
Ornate Picture Frame…99¢
The last were found at Vapor Thrift Store, which is a higher end spot, and their prices are higher end too. This is definitely off the beaten path for me.
I can’t believe I paid $4.99 for this! Color me insane. The hubby wanted me to get it and I caved. I’ve since polished it, so it looks much nicer. The stem has “thorns” on it, but the bloom doesn’t look very “rose-ish.” What would you call it?
Would you say it’s a candy dish? He thought soap dish, but I don’t see the slightest bit of soap scum on it.
This burlap wreath for $2.99 has definitely seen better days, but I bought it for the metal wreath form.
I bought this Jester Frog Tealight Candle Holder for $4.99 because I sold one exactly like it last year. Available.
Fell in love with this little sheep, but with no label or markings, I know nothing about him. Paid $2.99. Tell me, have you ever seen a sheep with a pig tail…a curlicued copper tail? I mean, I actually googled up sheep tails just to double-check. Sheep tails do not look like pig tails. Just thought you might notice. Available.
Considering how big this Lenox platter is, I was very surprised it was only $4.99. And it is vintage.
A beautiful porcelain spoon rest, made in Italy. Paid $3.99.
Another thing I fell in love with…what I call a “Tealight Tower” and I paid $3.99. I’m going to play with this a while. I might not sell it.
Fell in love with this lead crystal angel too. Found at Homewood Salvation Army on half price day, so I paid $2.50. It’s a keeper.
Lastly, I found these coasters for 99¢. It was the only thing at Vapor Thrift Store that was reasonable. Ha! So I bought them. I need more coasters like I need a hole in the head, but I told myself I will repurpose them. Ha again! They remind me of Spring, and we all need a reminder of Spring, don’t we?
That’s it till next time!
PLEASE PIN ME! Thanks!
