Nice vintage metal sign that is two sided. Has a person's name and telephone number on the front and back. Not sure what these were used for - I'm assuming it was some type of business sign. This belonged to Herschel Smith 855-2266. Large sign measures approximately 24" x 6" and is great vintage décor for a room! Rust only adds more character. 1940's - 1950's. Great vintage find!

Beautiful vintage ceramic figural vase/planter of the Madonna - Virgin Mary. Stands 6 1/2" tall x 4" wide. Very good condition. Has the original label on the bottom - GIFTWARES Co. NANCY PE W - JAPAN.

This is a fabulous vintage find! 1930's antique wooden tool box found in the back of an old barn. Large box measures approximately 17 1/2" wide x 7 1/2" tall x 9 1/2" deep. Great rustic décor item. Wonderful vintage character and charm. So nice to rescue and own something 80 years old that was once actually used every day on a farm by a family. Well made, heavy piece.

Beautiful extra large yellow gravy boat. Looks like it has some writing on the bottom, but I can't make it out. I think it is a McCoy piece. Great condition. Measures approximately 10 1/4" wide x 3 1/2" tall x 3 1/2" deep. These gravy boats are also great for a warm syrup holder if you're making pancakes for several people! This piece could be used or added to a collection for display. Purchased at an estate sale.

Real vintage (not a print or reproduction) panoramic photograph of an army troup in front of their barracks. It has been framed and measures approximately 26" x 13". Nice wooden frame with a wire hanger in the back. Purchased at an estate sale. Photograph is thought to be from the 1940's. Nice piece of history.

This is a great antique find! Shaving mirror is in great condition! Looks new with a beveled edge. Below it at one time was a hook for a shaving brush, but that is missing. It still has the bowl in the base that comes out that you would put your soap in to lather up. Art nouveau design on the base. As you can see through the last century it has some aging on the silver base. For a piece from the early 1900's though it is in pretty good condition and a lovely display piece! It measures approximately 13" tall and the mirror swivels. It has a swirly design on the back of the mirror or it may be a very fancy monogram.

Very elegant and beautiful petite dish with 22KT Gold trim. Probably from France. Marked FINE CHINA on the back and has a crest that has ROYAL marked on it. Has a Victorian couple in the middle with the man serenading the woman. Measures approximately 3 1/2" x 3". Would make a lovely ring holder or added to a collection of vintage dishes or Victorian items. Purchased at an estate sale. 

Set of EIGHT gorgeous green vintage cordial glasses purchased at an estate sale. I think these are depression glass - Colony Park Lane Pattern. Very good condition. Just beautiful!! They measure 3 1/2" tall and 2" across the top.

Rare hardback book by J.R. Williams called "OUT OUR WAY". Very funny illustrations/cartoons about cowboys out west. Was first published in 1928. This edition was published in 1943. The spine is in vintage condition as you can see from the photos. There is some aging in the way of a few scuffs etc. on the outside of the book (please look at the photos) but the inside pages and illustrations are in good vintage condition with some slight yellowing on some edges. Someone has put a book tag/sticker inside the front with their name and also written their name inside the back cover (inside). Other than that, no writing or marks on the illustrated pages, etc. Book measures approximately 8" x 6" and is a very neat and unusual find.

When you make a purchase from my Etsy shop a portion will go to the WSPA (World Society for the Protection of Animals) and the Wounded Warriors Project, which helps thousands of injured warriors returning home from current conflicts. I think in life we always need to keep the less fortunate in mind and Pay It Forward.

By selling and buying vintage we also help the earth by reclaiming and reusing treasures from the past.
