Vintage Find

This weekend was full of vintage office supply finds like this metal rubber stamp holder. Besides storing stamps I think this piece could serve many purposes like holding jewelry, small tubes of notions or spices, candles and even photographs. For 2 bucks, you can't beat the distressed and industrial appeal!

What did you find this weekend?

I went antiquing again this weekend (for a friend!) but did come home with some fun stuff for myself... a big purple letter "A" for my daughter Abigail's room, a vintage scarf for myself and a vintage tablecloth! FUN FUN! I love this little stamp holder... I wonder if you could get a wide mouthed (but shallow?!?) glass cup and slip them in there to hold rings or little trinkets. Thanks for sharing!

I actually found lots of collectable tea cards - I didn't know such a thing existed, but now I'm finding there are websites specifically dedicated to such things!

Paula said...

That is really cool! I need something like that to keep my necklaces from getting all tangled up.

aimee said...

i am glowing with jealousy! i have the hardest time finding displays for jewelry - they seem to always be the ones 'not for sale' in antique shows/stores. SUPER find!

Victoria said...

PS. Thanks so much Diana for putting up my Mod Square pillow on your sidebar, and for your good wishes for Mo, both are deeply and truly appreciated. xo Vic

Unfortunately, I got lost in the abyss that is Ikea and of course, they did not have anything that I came for! But it looks like you found a sweet treasure and such a steal too! I love searching for that little something special...hopefully the next time out will be a success.

Laura @ the shorehouse. said...

Two bucks?!? My kind of treasure. Good work by you! I think my favorite new treasure is the vintage Statue of Liberty I got to add to my collection last week. She wasn't two dollars, though. :-)
