Many times I have been asked where I find some of my vintage collections
and how do I know what to look for?
Here's the simple answer....start small, with a couple of good ideas in your head, look everywhere and build your collection in groups.
It only takes 3 items to be a collection!
A few favorites:
Hubley door stops and banks
or any unmarked
vintage paperweight type of thing
seltzer bottles or interesting colored glass
vintage yard games
interesting trunks, luggage and wicker
small hand made objects
or any heavy chunky pottery
Americana...flags and bunting
shovels and pitch forks
cute folding chairs
wicker wrapped jugs and bottles
Children's toys and furniture
dairy and farm
wonderful graphic signs
if you happen to come across a collection of like items
that are interesting and a good price...
these are vintage oil cans for farm machinery
and have wonderful colors and patina
there were a total of 16 cans,
which I got for 65 dollars....about 4 bucks per can
but as a collection they are really interesting
hope your find your perfect
collectible this week!
