Flashback Fun Finds

My favorite find today was this table-top juke box reproduction radio. It cleaned up nicely and will look really cool with my other vintage kitchen decor items or I might put it in my online shop.

I also found a couple of teal, Ball jars. These need some cleaning before I display them with my other teal glassware.
I always love suitcases so I picked up this doll case with a Ginny doll inside. It turns out that the doll is an early 1950s, jointed Ginny. The dress that was in the case is too large for her but I wanted her to have a little bit of modesty for the photo.

I have no idea what I am going to do with these but I found a bag of MIB flash cubes.
This last item is a card of sewing snaps but it had such a nice illustration for something that was so utilitarian. It was only when I got home and read the manufacturer's name did it surprise me. It is made by the Scoville Manufacturing Company of Waterbury, Conn. which was the hometown of my in-laws.
Hope everyone found some fun finds this weekend.

  3. What great finds! You know I find those flash cubes fascinating too. It would be fun to use those for some sort of photo holder. Need to think on that.

  5. That tabletop juke box does bring back my memories of a favorite restaurant in a nearby town. Sadly, the place has been razed for a new bank building.

    The snap card is nice. Those old sewing item cards do have the most interesting art on them.

    ENAMORED OF RED

    Enamored of red
    I lie in my bed,
    Dreaming of cherry-filled crèmes;

    For red’s a fine shade,
    The prettiest made,
    And gives me the sweetest of dreams.
