Sometimes I find myself wondering if I am destined to spend my time hunting for things that my parents used to have. There is a certain comfort, as if meeting up with old friends, that comes from finding objects that reminds you of your childhood.
Today's best finds were these two, midcentury modern pieces of office equipment that reminded me of my dad's desk. The "airplane wing" fluorescent lamp is almost identical to the one I remember sitting on his desk in the den. The Victor, Bakelite adding machine is a little different than what I remember but the sound it makes sends me right back to my childhood. These cost more than I would normally pay but how do you put a price on such fond memories.
I also bought this beautiful, hand-crocheted tablecloth. It is very large and in great condition.
I found these toy building bricks. They look like the modern Legos but are made out of wood. They are copyrighted 1939 by Halsam Products.
Just in time for Easter, I found this package of Ritz Easter egg decorating transfers. The dye tablets are still inside plus it has the "Mystic Writer" and all of the transfers.
I also bought two, brand new, car engine testing things that my dear boyfriend said my son could use on his cars. I didn't include photos here because they are boring black things with meters and wires and such. Nothing cute or vintage about them at all.
But speaking of cute and vintage, during the week I received this beautiful table cloth that my dear sister found for me in Iowa. I love the look and feel of vintage tablecloths. This is my favorite one so far.
