I am back after taking a break to organize some of my vintage junk treasures. The goal is to get all things organized in my container and out of the garage. I have a great container with wall to wall shelves and have been busy organizing it so I can find my vintage junk treasures when I am ready to sell them. I promise I will show you inside once I finish. It is jammed full.
So with that out of the way – here is vintage junk treasures #32. We found most of the things at a hoarder’s estate sale. I found 2 vintage quilts. One is tied and one is hand-quilted. The one that is tied has the turquoise border and at some time it appears that someone trimmed it down. As a sewer and maker of a few quilts, I can tell you that these both have a lot of time and work in them.
This one is all hand-quilted. Both quilts have some wear and tiny tears but I love old quilts.
These are newer Nancy Drew books that those I collect but I buy them if they are a good price as they are affordable editions for beginners.
I actually bought these books for the covers. I think they would be great for display. They are in excellent condition. They are dated 1918 and are all about art.
These are sweet baby shoes. These were the first ones you would buy when the child started to walk as they were hard-soled. The box is not original to the shoes. I love the wear on these! So very sweet!
A Poloroid camera, binoculars and an old Heddon hand-made wooden lure in original box.
Six silhouettes and in nice condition.
Seven smaller silhouettes.
I love these old lunch boxes. These were the kind that men carried to work years ago. The loggers around this area used them in the woods.
Two Pyrex bowls, a flour sifter, red Bakelite handle dough blender, a vintage children’s cookbook and an old potato masher. These will be added to my vintage junk treasures to be sold.
A vintage Pyrex bowl and a Poly-Perk. Don’t you just love that reddish orange color! It doesn’t seem like the coffee maker has been used!
Two vintage McCoy mixing bowls.
A great double Frigidaire ice cube tray! People love these!
A dog that I think is meant to be a cookie jar. The lid is missing but it would look cute with kitchen utensils in it. A vintage coffee maker, a green Bakelite ladle, a flashlight magnifier and a tool with many uses. It lifts, whips, mixes, mashes, crushes and strains! It sounds like something off an informercial!
An old flour sifter, green handle cookie cutters, a spring operated whip in box, a rotary mincer in box and 2 woodpecker toothpick holders. Those toothpick holders bring back memories of childhood. Our parents had one of those and I was always fascinated by it. Its beak is so sharp that it will spear the toothpicks and bring one up for you to use.
A vintage yellow Weller vase and a Shawnee elephant cream pitcher.
A wonderful wall crank phone. This phone was made in Portland, Oregon and was made by the B-R Electric and Telephone Mfg.Co. It is in excellent condition.
A vintage battery-operated Santa. He needs a little TLC.
This is a wonderful print from the 1940s by Ralph Pallen Coleman. It is titled Onward Christian Soldiers. It features a soldier praying to Jesus with Washington, Eisenhower, MacArthur and Pershing in the clouds.
A guardian angel print.
A vintage Bakelite radio and record player combination. It is great!
This is my favorite find! It is a vintage fishing tackle box. It has already received a makeover and you will see that next time.
I love the inside color of this tackle box.
I hope you enjoyed the latest edition of vintage junk treasures. We have more coming your way soon. Remember to have fun on your own journey of finding vintage junk treasures. Half the fun of finding the treasures is the hunt and the memories!
Wishing you many blessings!
