I’ve been slowing down my buying as of late since I have a lot of inventory at the moment. I did find some interesting smaller items this past weekend, so let’s get started.
If you have followed me at all, you might know that I can hardly pass up vintage sewing items from an estate sale. This sewing basket has been well used but has some interesting items in it. I paid $5 for it and will probably add a few more treasures to it to help round out the contents. I hope to get $15 for it.
This cute little wooden plate is hand painted and is actually a lazy susan music box that plays Lara’s Theme from Doctor Zhivago. Similar ones have sold on eBay for $20 or more. I feel I can get between $10-$12 for this one in our booth. I paid $1.
These vintage Christmas ornaments are actually made from honeycomb paper with a mylar type overlay. I paid $1 and will ask $5 in our booth this holiday season.
This small unmarked planter is a great shape and in perfect condition. Without any markings it is hard to say how old it is. I believe it is vintage because of the weight of the pottery and the light crazing on the outside. I paid $1 and will probably ask $5 for it in our case at Henrietta Mall Antiques.
This wire tiered stand has a nice patina even though I don’t think it is very old. It will be the perfect display at Christmas time with all the vintage Christmas ornaments I sell during the holidays. I paid $5.
This 1950s shelf will be repainted and put into our living room to hold books and collectibles. It will be a much better fit under a bank of windows then the current piece we have there. We have been on a mission over the past few years to replace pieces we acquired in our youth with real wood pieces that have value and character. I paid $45.
This vintage folding butler tray table is probably from the 1950s, but I am not really sure. There are no markings or labels on the underside that I can find. The folding mechanism works perfectly and after a little gluing in places it really is in excellent shape for its age. With a little sanding and stain or paint, it will make a nice end table or portable tray table for your next dinner party. Definitely a conversation piece. I paid $12 for it at an estate sale and think that it is worth at least $30.
Thank you for visiting!
