Vintage Finds!

The past week I found a few fun vintage items.  Some were found in a very nice air conditioned store that sells collectibles.  Some were found at an antique fair in 100 plus degree weather.  Regardless of where I found them I was excited to add all to my collection.
I was thrilled to find this Little Golden Book.  I collect vintage Little Golden Books.  It is rare that I find one that I don't have.  I just love the artwork in vintage children's books.

How many of you remember S & H Green Stamp books?  When I saw these I had to have them.  I will use them in some sort of paper craft project that I do.  The same is true for the milk caps (At least that is what I think that they are.  I could be wrong though.)   Don't you just love the magazines from the early 1970's? I had to have those also!

The artwork in this little book just called my name.  Not to mention that I love to throw a party!

My final find for the week was a bag of vintage letters, postcards & greeting cards.  I must admit that this was my favorite find and deal of the week. When I inquired about the price I thought for sure it would be too high for my budget.  Luckily it was only $3.00.  I was SUPER excited and I have had a lot of fun reading the old letters and admiring the vintage artwork on the greeting cards.  Each item was a surprise to me as I did not go through the bag until I got home. These are just a few of the many items in my $3.00 "surprise" bag.  (I have to say it has provided me with way more than $3.00 worth of entertainment. LOL)

So that is all the fun stuff that I found.  It has been awhile since I have found anything vintage that I was super excited about.  The more things that I have the more particular I get regarding what I purchase.  I have to say that I only spent $13.00 on all of the above. Not too bad, huh?

I hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend and that you have a great rest of the week!  As always, thanks so much for stopping by!
