Friday Finds: Vintage Edition - Farmhouse Estate Sale and More

June 20, 2015

Welcome to Friday Finds, where I share my latest thrifty (and usually) vintage finds with you.

 
Vintage 1950's glass cocktail shaker with drink recipes

My hope is that by sharing my thrifty finds I can motivate and inspire you to explore your own local thrift stores, estate sales, flea markets and barn sales and make your own fabulous finds for yourself. So let's get started.

Today it's all about the barn sale I attended recently.

Vintage 1950's glass cocktail shaker with drink recipes

First up is this midcentury modern 12 recipe cocktail shaker. It would make a great addition to any vintage barware collection.

I also found this other cocktail shaker there as well.

The second cocktail shaker is definitely plainer, but still makes a classic addition to any vintage barware collection. The midcentury modern cocktail shaker is AVAILABLE.

Vintage Green Lady Baltimore Suitcase

I also picked up this Lady Baltimore suitcase. It's in near pristine condition, and doesn't have that musty smell that most old luggage has. I like using vintage suitcases for storage. 
 
Vintage Ice Capades Charm Bracelet

Last but not least for the barn sale I found this Ice Capades charm bracelet. Did you know the name Ice Capades is a pun on the word escapade? What a great souvenir!

Each charm is topped with a different colored gemstone.

And all of the stones are intact. The paint is chipping here and there, but that just adds to the charming vintage patina of the piece. It's actually quite whimsical - one of its charms is a purple hippo in a tutu.


Here is the label that was on the box it came in. I tried looking into the jeweler but came up empty-handed. All I know for sure is that this box is from a long time ago - so long ago that phone numbers still had words in them: "Dearborn 2-0765."

Vintage Imperial Mark XII camera and flash

I also wanted to sneak in two more vintage finds I found at a local thrift store. My daughter ahs started a vintage camera collection so I picked up this Imperial Flash Mark XII camera. I believe it's from the 1960's.

Vintage Bakelite/Celluloid Scottie Pin

Finally, I picked up this vintage bakelite/celluloid Scottie pin for $1.49 at one of my local Goodwill stores. I thought it was cute, but I also had an inkling that it was a collectible. 

I found a double Scottie pin pretty similar to this one on Ruby Lane for $832.00. I found another one on Etsy (just a single Scottie) that's going for $289.00. And it's only half the size of mine. I'm starting to research the history of bakelite/celluloid jewelry to try and figure out its value.

Well, that's it for today, friends!

Wow - You did good!. The vintage cameras are collectible, and you really scored on the scottie pin. Why not make a profit. If you don't, someone else will.:)

I would have bought everything you did. The Scottie dog pin is a real treasure and worth more research. What a sweet camera your daughter found, a great start to a new collection!!!

What wonderful finds. I did not know about the play on words for Ice Capades. :)

I wanted to invite you to stop by the Decor To Adore blog as I am currently hosting a giveaway for my treasured readers.

Love your finds, as always!

My daughter was trolling the
web for a Polaroid camera,
as she's enamored of the
vintage look of the pics! I
remembered that my uncle
had given me his before she
was born, and just dug it out
for her. Fun stuff!
