Wholesome Vintage








I know I've been slack on vintage finds, but don't worry...there will be lots of vintage goodies this month. With the Liberty Antique Show around the corner and the massive cleaning of my family's storage unit...oh yes, there should be tons!

For now, let's dive into these finds from Radar Vintage Collectibles. French string, English fishing books, French music books, wrapped papier, wooden spools, and a glass wasp catcher - what's not to love? You may think I'm crazy, but the life size goat from Amsterdam is so neat! In the backyard of future awesome house I want a goat...it could trim grass, make milk, and be cute. I'm sure there is much more involved, so for now I'll settle for a fake one!

you are so not crazy! that goat is to die for. and i totally want a goat, too-- did you know you can rent goats in some places instead of using a lawn mower? i'm not kidding!! you can google it!

OMG! If I had a yard I would so rent a goat, try to pet it, and take pictures of it for the blog!

ahahahaha! Goat - to be cute. I always tell my husband I want a cheetah, koala, and a few other animals in my backyard. The running joke is "YOU can't train CHEETAHs!"

Love going around vintage markets. Still miss that market in paris. It was fab.

blazedanielle said...

So cool! Great finds!! ;) I love all the photos!

ambika said...

Oh, this all looks so wonderful. It's great when a vintage seller can present their things in such a way that you really can see how it might look in your home--or how to work it in amongst your existing things.

I've linked you--adore your blog!

Breakaway said...

MMBEK!love your idea ..yes girl must have a goat ..cute!

Elizabeth said...

That goat is so sweet. What a great collection! Can't wait to see what else you'll show us this month!

avant garde said...

i'd always rather have vintage than new. as far as the goat goes, i'd name him, probably buy little goat coats for him and tell him he was cute too!

OMG! So funny - I have wanted a goat since I was a little girl. I even used to draw portraits. One day - We'll have one...I even have the name picked out. Either way, I don't think you're crazy. :) Lovely post of finds. The pictures even look a bit vintage.

Rachel said...

Hey Harriet said...

Love that goat on the boat! Wonderful finds as always :)

littlebyRD said...

I am drooling. Seriously! These are great - just exactly the sorts of things I love.

A-M said...

Lovely little treasures! Oh give me a storage shed to clear out any day. I LOVE finding stuff, little treasures you'd forgotten you had. I have 2 garages full of boxes, waiting for a house to put them in. I can't wait to rediscover all my precious things in a fresh new environment, in 8 months time! A-M xx

gracia said...

A handsome collection of beauty... yes, lovely finds!

Camille said...

Goat on a boat makes me think Dr. Seuss! I love the glass wasp catcher. The spools make me think of the factories I would go to with my dad.

OLIVEAUX said...
