Thrill of the Hunt # 75

September 18, 2018

I can't believe I've made it to Thrill of the Hunt #75! Has it been that long? I do know that it's been fun for me to share my thrifting finds with you and I've enjoyed your following along this thrifting journey. You've been great and I hope you stick around because I feel there's many more great Thrill of the Hunts in store! Now on to the vintage finds.

Sunrise travel alarm clock retro Mad Men

Way back when, in Thrill of the Hunt #35, I shared a vintage travel alarm clock. Does anyone out there remember these? For those of you who never saw it, or don't remember it, I'm sharing it again today. I recently placed it in my Etsy shop, Vintage Farmhouse Love, and it sold, pretty much right away. I paid 99 cents for it and it sold for $10.00. So I guess I should be on the lookout for more of these!

The neat thing about these clocks is that they fold completely flat in their own carrying case.

When opened, the case serves as the clock stand.

No batteries needed. Just wind it and it's ready to go! I recently came across a similar travel clock that was in a pink leather case. They wanted $15.00 for it so I passed it by. Now I'm wishing that I had purchased it for myself!

Here's another oldie but goodie, just listed in my Etsy shop, Vintage Farmhouse Love. These art deco salt and pepper shakers were made by Superlon Products in Chicago in the 1940's. They're made of hard plastic, similar to bakelite. One is orange, the other green, each with ornate black bases. The bottoms are marked, "Superlon Products Chicago 12 USA". Each measures approx. 2-1/4" tall x 3/4" in diameter and I was surprised what good condition they were in. I really don't think they've ever been used. I think they'd be great for any salt and pepper shaker collection, but especially in a retro kitchen. Art Deco Superlon Salt and Pepper Shakers are AVAILABLE.

How many of you remember these? I do! 

Here's another recent addition to my Etsy shop. This vintage Moo-Cow Creamer serves as a retro reminder of the 1960's-1970's. It was created by a company called Whirley Industries in Warren, PA. The head comes off for ease of filling and cleaning. It makes a great creamer or even farmhouse kitchen decoration. (The orange plastic thermos lid in two of the pictures is for display/styling purposes only and is not included with the Moo Cow Creamer.) It measures approx. 6 1/2"tall and 2.5" in diameter at the base and is in near perfect condition. The Moo-Cow Creamer is SOLD.

Do these little babies look familiar to anyone? I picked them up, along with a few other sets, because: number one they were so cute (they're really small, only 1 1/2 " tall) and number two I liked the blue and white grainsack-type stripe on them. (Only a blogger who loves farmhouse decor would ever see them that way - ha.)   

According to the owner of the thrift store where I picked them up, they were salt and pepper shakers used on first class United Airlines flights back in the day. But they were discontinued and are now  collectibles. They will be listed in my Etsy shop soon.

Well, that's it until next time, friends!
