Welcome to another edition of Vintage Fascination.
With limited thrifting time these days I don’t have much to share with your this week; however, I did get out for a little while yesterday morning.
This wooden hanger set me back ta whopping twenty-five cents. It has splendid vintage typography advertising the Sheraton Hotels & Motor Inns U.S.A., Hawaii, Canada & Overseas. It has a lovely patina from age. Since Hawaii is separately listed as if it isn’t a part of the USA, I believe that this hanger predates 1959, the year Hawaii became the 50th state.
These lights are vintage-ish. I think they are older but probably produced in a vintage style and not truly vintage. What I thought was G40 style bulbs were actually just light covers. I plan to use the bulbs covers for craft projects.
Can you believe I found another silver baby cup? It is the third one in three weeks. I have to ask myself did I just not see them before? The mark on this one is very difficult to read. It is a circle inside a shield. There are some markings inside the circle but I cannot make them out. I even tried the tracing method to see the mark with no luck. My baby cup collection continues to grow.
Counted cross stitch seems to be a lost art but I just couldn’t pass up this pretty little tea towel for only a dollar. Someone put a lot of work into making a plain white tea towel into something special. I used to do counted cross stitch (when I could see better) and have a fondness for old samplers and other examples of needlework.
Do you remember when these metal tissue covers were popular in the 60’s? When I got home the rose embellishment had dislodged itself from the tissue box. The metal is very dirty so a good cleaning is a must before any painting or repair can take place. So it goes in the to-do pile.
Thank you for joining me today.
