If you are on our email list, follow FOUND on Facebook or have been in the shop this month, you know about our “Old Stuff” sale already. It’s that time of year when all vintage and antique merchandise is 20% off. Throughout October we clear as much of the vintage as possible to make room for the November switch0ver to the holidays. I had a chance to go to some great sales in August and September so we started the month with fresh vintage merchandise. Above are some tags that were intended to be attached to a cows ear. Never used, but nicely rusted around the edges. Found them at The 3rd Sunday Market in Bloomington, Illinois. Might be fun to use in jewelry or collage.
I found over a hundred pairs of vintage sleepeye sets of doll eyeballs at the Alameda Antiques Market when I was in San Francisco in August. The counterweight mechanism and piece that would attach into the nose makes it so they stand upright. Reminds me of something out of A Bugs Life or Toy Story. Fun to have on a shelf or play with.
At the Allegan, Michigan antique show, I found a huge lot of drawer pulls. Only have about 8 left, but they would be wonderful on kitchen cabinets.
Like old photographs? I added lots of new snapshots to the fifty cent box this week. And we have hundreds of loose cabinet cards and this wonderful old album filled with antique photographs. I also bought a collection of over 250 postcards, mostly addressed to young Nellie Jones. Some of my favorite Halloween postcards sold already, but the rests are all at FOUND now.
Remember – if it’s old – it’s on sale this month at FOUND!
