Awesome vintage finds

Lately I have really gained an appreciation for old antique vintage looking things.  I’ve been frequenting our local flea market and have scored a few great finds, many of them in VERY good almost pristine condition.  Thought it would be fun to share pictures of some of the cool stuff I’ve found.  Take a looksy!

I found this cute little embroidered bag. It’s just adorable and perfect for holding just my wallet, keys and phone. It’s not very big so I wouldn’t carry a whole lot in it.  Wouldn’t want to weight it down and have one of the handles break off although they do look like they’ve been sewn in very securely.  Don’t you just love the beautiful colors and all the detail of the embroidery work? It’s just darling!

IMG_2069IMG_2072IMG_2068These vintage tablecloths were just what I was looking for. Just a breath of fresh air to go over our little cottage table. The green checkered cloth goes perfectly with the chairs. And the pretty flowered tablecloth makes me me want relax with a cup of tea and a good friend.IMG_2105IMG_2111I loved this cute table runner. Saw it and had to have it.

IMG_2114IMG_2113I never really paid much attention to vintage pyrex bakeware until recently.  The ones you see in the stores today are the plain boring glass ones.  But the ones from way back when are colorful and pretty to look at and I think better quality.  Oh and some even have pretty flowers designs on them too.  I  hope to get my hands on some pretty turquoise and green sets. I did spot this beautiful minty green bowl with a glass lid (I could swear I heard it calling out my name) and this cute loaf pan. Adorbs!

IMG_2092IMG_2084Love this perfect vintage Fire King white swirl bowl.  After I bought this I later found a Fire King set of 4 (maybe 5, can’t remember) swirl bowls for $30.  I was low on cash and didn’t have enough on me. Still kicking myself for not snagging that deal when I had the chance.  Thinking back I don’t know why I didn’t ask the lady if she accepted debit cards or at the least I could have got my hand stamped and left to go to the bank and come back for it. It was a beautiful set and in perfect condition. Ughhh….I best not think about it..

IMG_2096Can’t tell you how happy I was to find this pretty vintage wood framed folding knitting tote (is that a long enough name for you? lol..). I actually set out for the flea market in the hopes that I would find one and was surprised when I scored so early on.  I actually have one that was given to me when I was 14 years old (many many moons ago) and simply wanted another one.  Yes I know I have issues…lol!  Not a bad find for only $4.IMG_2053Oh and these two vintage sewing kits were a perfect find. I had been looking for a small kit to throw in my purse and now I have two. Teehee…:-)

IMG_2100IMG_2098IMG_2101I wasn’t looking for coasters but gosh this vintage set really caught my eye. Simply adorable.

IMG_2023Feast your eyes on this pretty pink glass bowl.  Perfect for jewelry or to just display to show it off.  I was actually lucky to find this glass bowl.  The lady was trying to get rid of everything and all items were 50% so I got this beauty for just $2.50.  I took several pictures of it so you could see how stunning it looks from different angles. Isn’t it purdy?

IMG_2037IMG_2038IMG_2036IMG_2031I’ve been eyeing milk glass lately and am just fascinated with them and their beautiful detail. I hope to get my hands on a few green and turquoise ones in the near future.  I’ve just been drooling over them.  For now check out these little pretties. The one on the left I’m told is a Fenton hobnail milk glass ruffle pedestal compote and the one on the right is an Anchor Hocking grape pattern milk glass pitcher.  I’m going to have to invest in a nice vintage cottage looking cabinet so I can display these beauties and some more that I hope to get… 🙂

IMG_2060And finally…I will leave you lovelies with these delicately crocheted doilies that I was lucky enough to find in absolute great condition.  Check out the close-up shots so you can really appreciate the detailed work.
