Today I want to show you some of the vintage junk treasures we have found lately at estate sales and one auction. I also want to show some photos of an antique shop I discovered on the Oregon Coast last weekend. It is the beginning of Spring Break for most schools in Oregon and this antique store should be on your list of places to stop if you are on the coast.
The shop has been open for about 9 months and is called Simply Charming. It is located on Hwy 101 at Barview near Rockaway. You can follow them on their Facebook page here. It has great prices, great inventory and the owner is very nice. Here are a few photos to whet your interest. You can find furniture, toys, books, a vintage oak telephone booth, a vintage pewter time keeper’s whale oil candlestick lamp (rare!), repurposed items and so much more. It is worth the stop!
Now sit back and enjoy the next edition of our vintage junk treasures. I must admit that Mr. Deanie found more of them than I did. So most of the credit for this edition goes to Mr. Deanie!
Mr. Deanie went to a local weekly farm auction that also sells miscellaneous and found the above treasures plus some furniture. Sometimes there is some great vintage junk treasures there like these shown. These items were all in one box for one price. You can’t go wrong with those box lots when they are reasonably priced!
This is the label for the flashlight above. It still works perfectly and I have it at my booth at Haven Antiques for $22.50. It has a stand on the back so you can aim it where you want it to shine. It is probably from the 1940s or 50s.
What I love about this vaporizer is its color! I love that shade of green. The instruction booklet is just as cute!
This is a Nobility leakproof battery from the 1950s. It is amazing to me that they could make batteries that were leakproof then and now days I have ones that leak at times! It was still in the flashlight. I started looking on the internet and there are collectors of these old batteries. You never know what vintage junk treasure might appeal to someone! I think it is the graphics on the old batteries which makes them appealing.
I have a fondness for any old kitchen items. This is a nut chopper made by Androck and it says: Uniform Nutmeat Chopper. The glass bottom was made by Hazel Atlas.
This bread box is in mint condition. It was made by Pentron Industries, Inc. in 1979.
These were the Monopoly tokens and the flatiron, cannon and thimble are retired.
Two flour sifters, a Campbell Soup recipe box with some recipes and a nice enamel coffeepot.
Kitchen utensils! I love them but don’t particularly like to use them. LOL! Some vintage mashers, beaters and spreader.
More vintage kitchen utensils. I think these look so good in your kitchen vignettes.
That’s all for today but there is a lot more to show in the next edition of Vintage Junk Treasures – what we found at estate sales at the coast.
Wishing each of you a great journey in your hunt for vintage items and make sure to have fun along the way! Remember you are making memories!
Wishing you many blessings in 2017.
