Actually a few of these items were finds from the Flea back in October. I'm just now getting around to photographing everything.
The Jell-O book is from 1925 and the Spry recipe book doesn't have a date but I'm guessing the 1940s.
When I saw the second book, (the gray one) laying on the table, I literally did a little happy dance right there in the booth. This book has been on my wish list for years. It's called Clothes Lines, Party Lines and Hem Lines. I'll talk more about this book another day.
Who can resist Anthropomorphic veggies? Not me! I thought these little characters where just too cute to pass up.
I found the little bird above at Vintage City. He fits in nicely with my other little birdies that were my Grandmothers. He looked very sad on the store shelf, but I left him there and continued to browse around the room and into the back room. But he was all I could think about...It was like he was calling out to me. (one step closer to a room with padded walls, I know). When I went back into the room to scoop him up there were a couple of ladies standing right in front of him. My little heart pitter-pattered with fear that they would buy him. Finally, they moved on and I quickly nabbed him and set him on the check-out counter. He was just one of those things I would've regretted not picking up. For a couple of bucks, I had peace of mind and a new little birdie friend for my window.
The little tin dishes and child-sized utensils was my daughter's big score of the weekend. She found these at Vintage City and loves them.
The Old Dutch Cleanser can, above, is one of my favorite finds this weekend. The copyright is 1945 so I'm guessing the can is from anywhere between 1945-50. It's in great shape and is UNOPENED!
So, those are the treasures we've found recently and that's all for today, but stay tuned!
And as always, have a Happy Vintage Day!!
