Welcome back to another edition of Vintage Fascination.
My daughter and I did a bit of thrifting last week and I want to show you what we found.
This wicker briefcase is from the 1960’s. It has a leather handle and a leather strip across the bottom with little brass feet. It has brass locks, but unfortunately, there isn’t a key.
It is a very charming vintage piece. The label reads Formez.
Yes, I found this thermos twice before. One I sold and the other is in my collection but I bought this one anyway. For now, there are two in my collection since they make such cute twins.
A Oneida Georgian Scroll silver-plate water pitcher was just sitting there on the shelf. I picked it up and put it back, I picked it up I put it back. Ok, you get the picture I was a little undecided. Finally, I put it in my cart. Then I decided to put it back on the shelf went around the corner changed my mind again and bought it. Now I’m, glad I did.
I can’t believe that I found another Florida souvenir plate. This one is in vibrant colors with flowers and fruits on the border with little scenes from Florida. The scenes are Cypress Gardens (now closed due to flood damage near Winter Haven), Silver Springs (State Park near Ocala), Singing Tower (Bok Tower Gardens – National Historic Site near Lake Whales), Marine Studios (Marineland near St. Augustine), Sunshine Skyway (Tampa Bay Bridge)and Miami Beach. A couple of these I’ve never heard of so I did a bit of research and noted where they are in Florida.
Jewelry boxes that I find at the thrift store normally aren’t as nice as this one The inside is pristine but the finish is dark and chipped.
So a paint makeover is definitely in order. It is large with lots of storage even little side doors for necklaces.
I haven’t checked the number of adornments box makeovers I have done so far. I have not been doing it for long as initially, I considered it to be too exhausting to even think about it! I’ve altered my opinion presently and I’m continually searching for fresh painting systems and items to provide these ancient adornments boxes another appearance using the automated trading system.
PINK AND BLUE BOX:
This is my conventional style, somewhat intriguing yet an unexpected makeover as the drawers are hauled out.
Now I just have to keep my daughter from claiming it.
Thanks for visiting today.
