Vintage Fascination 132 ~ A Florida Edition

Hello, friends, I’m back at home in Georgia but had a wonderful time in Florida last week.  I did find some time for thrifting on Thursday afternoon.  Restore and Goodwill were my only stops but that was enough.

Here is some of what I found and had to leave behind at my daughter’s place.  I flew down to Ft. Lauderdale so only a few things came home with me in my suitcase.  Of course, that just gives me an excuse to go back soon.  Only negative is that I will have to drive and it is a solid 10-hour trip.

This vintage dresser/vanity jar appears to be Art Deco based on the design on the lid and the swirly pattern of the glass.  I looked high and low for another dresser jar like it but cannot find one.  If anyone has any information on this jar I would love to hear anything you know about its age and manufacturer.

When I saw this small tin on the shelf at Restore I knew I had to have it.  I picked it up and flipped it over.   Printed on the bottom is “Ian Logan’s Haberdashery, Designed & Distributed by Ian Logan Ltd. London EC1, Illustration by Louise Brierly, c 1983 Ina Logan Ltd., Made in England, Registered Design No. 1001018”.   The illustration is a shop of cute little mice sewing, carrying bolts of cloth, and showing their wares in the shop window.  The sign on the little shop says Haberdashery.

 When I picked it up it seemed heavy so I opened it.   Inside is a small sewing kit with a tomato pin cushion, blue measuring tape, tiny scissors, thimble, button, straight pin and various shades of thread on little spools.  It is the cutest little sewing kit I’ve ever seen.

These vintage paper hand-held paddle fans are the kind you used in old country churches that didn’t have air conditioning.  I haven’t seen any of these fans since I was a kid and went to church with my grandmothers. There are two styles.  On the front of the one with Jesus sitting on a step says “Christ on the Mount of Olives”.  It is also marked on the front left corner “8705, c  A. Scheer, Made in U.S.A.  The other fan is of Jesus with the sheep and says “The Good Sheppard”.  It is also marked like the first one except is it number 8703 on the right corner of the fan.

On the back of the fan is an advertisement for the business that supplied the fans, Deraney’s Department Store.  The fan also shows that Deraney’s located in Eatonton, Georgia, sells Dry Goods, Shoes, and Ready To Wear.  Yes, I found these at the Restore in Delray Beach, Florida.  The back of the fans includes a statement about our American freedom of religion. It says “Our great country was founded on Religious freedom.  It has prospered and grown under God’s guidance.  Let us hold fast these religious liberties and keep our America strong by attending the Church of your choice every week.”  Also included is

Psalm 122:1

I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the Lord.

 

Three beautiful Harker Pottery, Royal Gadroon Bridal Rose dinner plates came home with me.  On Kovels website I learned that Harker Pottery is one of the oldest potteries in America.  The Harker family made pottery in East Liverpool, Ohio beginning in 1840.   The plant moved to Chester, West Virginia, in 1931.  In 1971 the Jeannette Glass Company bought Harker and ceased operating in 1972.

Normally, I buy wooden hangers that have advertisements on them but when I saw these six plain ones for a dollar several uses came to mind.  Just look at Pinterest to see that wood hangers are for so much more than hanging clothes.

In Restore they have a large shelf unit filled with silver and pewter.  I saw a baby cup for my collection.  It was so bright and shiny I thought it was new but bought it anyway.  What I didn’t realize until I got it back to my daughter’s place that it is actually a trophy.  It is a Web pewter baby cup for the Elizabeth W. Goldberg Tournament 1988.  I did a Google search but learned nothing about the tournament.  This sweet little baby cup/trophy is joining my baby cup collection OR maybe my trophy collection.  Decisions…. Decisions.

My last purchase is an old school No. 13 Swingline heavy-duty desktop stapler made in the U.S.A, Long Island City, NY.  That’s a mouthful.  It uses only Genuine Swingline high carbon No. 13 staples.  It is from the 1960’s and still in good working order. It will get a quite a workout in my office.
