Latest Load

Last Friday, we dropped off more goodies to our booth B309. Here are just a few of the items.

 Fire King French onion soup bowls -$3 ea.
 Gorgeous and slightly goth looking knotted doily in frame.

 Way cheerful vintage ashtrays from the Niagara region circa mid-sixties. - $5 ea.

 Meloids tin. This is a vintage English cough suppressant. The tin opens up to unveil a hidden tin lid with a little hole that allows you to shake out the drops. Cool. - $9

More Cool New Old Stuff

 This is the coolest mod lamp. By day, it looks like that static electricity thing that makes your hair stand on end at the Science Centre. Plugged in at night, it's chic and Art Deco-esque. Buy it for $70. Works perfectly and is in perfect condition.
 I hate how so many people say "Mad Men" for anything vintage. "Hey, that 'Fat Albert' lunchbox is so Mad Men." Ugh. Anyway, I do think this lamp may have made a good accessory on a TV show set in the sixties. It's got a great shape, lights up perfectly and is in mint condition. Price is $50.
 We sold a typesetter's tray very quickly in April and have been hunting for more since. This one is in good condition and has terrific inky patina that tells the story of its purpose. $85.
 This is crazy, but we actually have a large Col. Sanders money bank for $26 and two cute Col. Sanders s&p shakers for $20. I like that they look like statues of Lenin if he had a bit more Southern charm. The money bank is not punctured and has a few coins jingle jangling in the bottom.
 Pretty and old Phillips' Milk of Magnesia Tablets bottle in cobalt blue. $11.
 Large Thermos flask in excellent condition (and it isn't stained or smelly inside, so feel free to use it). $13
 Pink vintage water pitcher $12 SOLD!
 Milk glass bowling mugs. After knocking down some pins, come home for a hot chocolate in style. $3 each.
 This cheerful enamel cooking pot has a heavy bottom which should lead to less burning - in theory. $19
Father's Day is coming up and you know Dad wants an antique rabbit trap for $23. He soweth the seed that made you YOU, so why not throw in the equally mantiquy fireman's wrench for $21? He deserves it. Fireman's wrench SOLD

Vintage Marimekko Fabric

A new piece at our booth is this gorgeous wall hanging or table runner. The pattern is called "Pepe" and was designed by Maija Isola for the Finnish textile company Marimekko in 1972. This rare fabric is stamped with the designer and year and is approximately 4' x 2'. It has been professionally hemmed and includes a simple piece of wood dowl and vibrant orange ribbon. The dowl can be removed easily in order to turn it into a table runner. Cost - $85

This piece is currently not in the booth. If you are interested in purchasing it, email  SOLD!
