Vintage Treasures!

Mr Penny is still recooping from his surgery, so I left him napping for a couple of hours and went to the auction yesterday. I got these retro pink canisters...

And these two sweet canisters...

They are in pretty good shape all things considered!

There were also quite  a few other pottery pieces in the box, mostly garden pots, so I didn't take a picture of them. I have started saving my tickets because I can't always remember exactly what I paid!! 

I thought this cosmetic case was the cutest thing, but no one else did.  He started the bidding at $1, I flashed my card and then there was no one else bid on it!

The case is in excellent condition.

Charles of the Ritz!!!!

$1...would any of you bid on it, or am I just crazy!!

I thought these cloth covered hat heads were pretty cool!  They had lots of hats at the auction, but I didn't see any I REALLY liked!

One other lady bid on them, but finally let me have them for 12.50. 

Now for my treasure!!!  Mr. P collects old phonographs and he was home sick, so I thought "I'm going to get this for him if it doesn't go too high".  $14.00!!!!!!!

It has a little compartment on the lid to hold old records.

The crank stores in that hole in the back...I didn't know if it worked or not when I bought it, but it works great!!!

See the little needle case on the left, it is full of needles!  I have paid 15.00 for that many needles before! I just realized that I didn't take a picture of the back, it is a Victrola, has the little dog and everything.  I hope you enjoyed seeing my treasures!

I am joining the party at ALDERBERRY HILL

  2. Happy Sunday, Penny!!

    Thanks so much for your visit and kind comments!! I was beside myself trying to get the Dining Room decorated for Halloween. It seems that I could not remember almost doubling what I had for Halloween from last year. It was those clearance sales at the end of the season last year. They get me every time!

    Now your treasures.... I am sure that Mr. Penny will be quite please with his "Feel Better" gift???
    I love those canisters. Pink and black is close to my heart as that is the colors of my Powder Room...

    And those cloth hat heads are amazing!! I have styrofoam ones that I decoupaged.....

    Congrats on all your wonderful buys!!
    I hope you are having a lovely weekend and that Mr. Penny will be up to par very soon!
