I know I haven’t posted in a while but I really just haven’t have anything new or creative to share. I have found a few items over the past couple weeks that I thought I’d share with you.
The picnic basket, sconce and coasters are finds from this weekend, the rest have been in hanging out in my car trunk for a few weeks.
I love this little vintage purse that I found. I knew right away that I had to bring it home.
I love the fun pop of color inside.
I loved these little cases for only a few dollars each.
I thought this was a hat box and hoped to find a great hat in it but I didn’t expect this….
A wig! It’s a wig box I guess although there is lots of room for a hat in there too!
It was sort of creepy to open it to find a wig inside.
In fact, I didn’t even open it all the way at the sale to see this lovely patterned inside.
I couldn’t find out too much about this case.
I think it was some sort of travel case, maybe for a shaving kit or cosmetic case.
It was made my Congress Luggage Corp from Roselle, New Jersey and is very heavy for it’s size. I’m think it is a mid century piece.
There is only one small tear in the back of the case.
For some reason I’m drawn to vintage picnic baskets. I loved the uniqueness of this one.
It had a few bumps and bruises.
But considering it’s age I think it looks great.
I even bought a few pieces of enamelware that might have once been used in a picnic basket.
The coasters were new from Goodwill and will be taken apart and covered with leather and suede from my stash. I haven’t tried coasters from suede yet but know I want to try them soon since I have some great colors of suede to pick from.
What have you found lately?

I agree about the wig - a little creepy. But I love everything else, esp the enamelware.ReplyDelete
Some fun finds. I would call the case with a mirror an overnight bag, unless you needed a LOT of makeup. My mother had one from the 40s or 50s. I remember it was hefty.ReplyDelete
I'm visiting from Tatertots and Jello's Weekend Wrap Up Party! Love your thrift finds! I especially love the picnic basket!ReplyDelete
Those are some great finds! Love the fabric inside of the box. Found you via Southern Hospitality. Toodles, Kathryn http://thededicatedhouse.blogspot.com/2011/09/voice-studio.htmlReplyDelete
That would be a little unnerving to open the "hat" box and find a wig. Yikes! I think you found some really cool things. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
I had to read your post when I saw your caption about the wig! LOL! Love the white vintage purse! Really cute! :)ReplyDelete
