Tuesday’s Treasures #20

Tuesday's Treasures #20 from www.VintageLiaison.com

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.

sewing_box_with_contents

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.

painted_susan_music_box

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.

ornaments_paper

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.

yellow_planter

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.

wire_tiered_display

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.

shelf_before

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.
