Well, at least its still January! Been wanting to do this recap all month.
You can read about last year’s finds here.
So, in no particular order here are my top 5 vintage finds from the last year.
1. I can’t do this list without including something made out of one of my favorite materials: Bakelite!
Remember these super cute salt and pepper shakers?
Art Deco Salt and Pepper Shakers
They are still listed on Etsy, but my price is fairly high. That’s how I know that I deep down don’t really want to sell them!
2. The next find was only a few
weeks months (wow time flies!) ago but both bowls sold already. Yes, I could have kept them. But I don’t feel any remorse, so that’s a sign I really didn’t need them, correct??
Fire King Polka Dot Splash Proof Bowls
3. And it wouldn’t be a Recycleista post with some flatware, right?
Oneida Heirloom Shelley stainless flatware
This flatware was da bomb and it made me close to $300. Just a dent in the whole wisdom teeth bill…but I don’t want to think about that…so you’ll have to read the story for yourself
4. This was one of the few items I ran at auction on Ebay last year. Most of my vintage finds do go onto Etsy but every once in awhile I go for Ebay and auction format…just for fun and to shake things up a bit. This was just hanging with the rest of the ties at Value Village and I near about fell over.
Always the sign of a good find!!
Salvador Dali necktie.
This tie was entitled “Symphonic Fountain” and sold at auction for $192.50.
Okay I said ‘no particular order’…but I did save the best for last.
Do you remember what it was?
It truly was a heart stopping moment at the thrift store.
The Olivetti Valentine S portable typewriter.
No. I have not listed it yet.
I am hoarding it. I admit it.
One thing I realized as I was putting this together…finding 5 items that really stood out was HARD.
I’ve come to the conclusion I’m not thrifting enough! 🙂
What were your top finds!! Please share!
