A few vintage items

Dan and I like to browse Antique shops, flea markets and garage sales.  We are not big antique collectors by any means, but we enjoy finding items that are unique or interesting to us.  I love vintage, here are a few of the things we have collected.

Some of Dan's "stuff" on display in the garage.

~old bakery advert~

These postcards were purchased at an antique shop.
I have an album of old family family postcards that my Mom recently gave me, will have to take pics of them sometime to post on here.

Love this oak filing cabinet, we have put it to good use!

Small English Teapot..bottom markings read:
Made In England

I actually won this at a silent auction that was for our church's children ministry. I was just trying to get the bidding going, didn't think I would actually bring it home. ;-) 
 I think I paid $1 or $2 for this "Snack Hound".   I looked it up on Ebay..
It's going for $20 on Ebay. 

I will end with this, it's not "old" but it's vintage looking.

I have this magnet on my fridge, it makes me smile.

Be blessed!


  1. Enjoyed your post! I have a similar fridge magnet- same style and it says, "What shall I buy today..." My husband's best friend gave it to me. :D Hmmm. (((Hugz)))

  2. lovely goodies. Seemed strange to see the teapot photo, I have one exactly the same.

    have a lovely weekend Pam xx

  3. Pam, let me know if you want to read that book. I have 2 copies so I'd be more than happy to send you my extra.
