Very Vintage

Contributor post by Alicia from AliciasFindings

Vintage is a very big part of what is for sale here on Etsy. There are home decor, games, clothing and more. There are now things that are considered vintage from when I was growing up.

We want to know what you have in your shop that is vintage. We would also like you to tell us something about the item.

Linda from LazyYVintage says I love vintage and antiques, always have. Milk glass is a favorite as is American glassware makers. Fenton glass is beautiful and collectible. This lovely milk glass cake stand is designed in Fenton’s silver crest line of milk glass serving ware. So a lovely addition to your next holiday or dinner party.

NeatoKeen said I collect and sell vintage tea towels with fun graphics from the mid-century. I was first drawn to them because they made me smile. I am continually amazed that I keep finding “new” designs after a decade of looking for them. This London souvenir tea towel is one of my favorites because there are 55 people from all walks of life on it. I never tire of looking at it. In fact, I have one framed and hanging in my house!

Mrs A from 2aEmporium states that I like Vintage because it reminds me of happy memories from the past. I feature many vintage items at 2aEmporium. This Homer Laughlin Gravy Boat from the 1950s is one of my favorites. One day I was watching a rerun of The Andy Griffith Show. While Andy, Opie and Aunt Bee were eating dinner, one of them passed a gravy boat. I yelled “Hey, that’s a Homer Laughlin Gravy Boat. It looks just like the one I have in my shop.” Now, while I’m quite sure that the gravy boat I have listed isn’t the exact same one used on The Andy Griffith Show…wouldn’t it be fun to pretend it was?

Pam from PearlsVintagebyPam says vintage tea kettles are special. This copper Revere kettle is very special.  My father in law worked at Revere Copper and Brass in Rome NY. I am featuring a copper tea kettle.
