In the last post, I mentioned that I splurged a bit and ordered something on Etsy. It was actually an amazing deal! I've been looking at ice cream containers on Etsy (the only place I've ever seen them) for along time. The $15 + that each vendor charges is not in my budget. (Even splurging I have a limit). Then I found
You must check it out! They are in Kentucky and find unused packaging from old warehouses. And their prices are amazing. I paid around $5 for each of these and they even reimbursed me when the shipping wasn't as much as it stated. (Shipping was about $3)
Here's what I got:
From the 1960's
From the 1930's
And my favorite from the 1950's!
It was interesting to me how small the portions are. The top is a single, the others look a pint or less. Now we have Costco tubs. (oink oink!) Aren't they cute! I will be purchasing from Conway again!
And I can't forget the adorable canister I found at a local, really reasonably priced antique shop down town for $5, along with these goodies.
This mug was a steal at $1.50!
I of course added it to my patriotic display! It is now really full.
My major splurge was this adorable 1950's bread box for $22. I thought it was a great deal. I've been seeing them priced at $30 and up at antique shops.
It joins my collection. I was lucky enough to find the top floral one at a yard sale a year ago for $10 and the third floral one down at Goodwill for $7.00 last Christmas. The plaid picnic tin was a Birthday gift from my hubby!
I stumbled into V V the other day and saw this adorable cake stand for $2.99
So that's my the end of my splurge...now back to bargain hunting and finding some stuff to sell too!
And thanks to Jill at :
I have a new addiction...SMASHing! My 14 year old daughter and I had some girl time this week, and we each picked out a book, stickers, printed stuff from pinterest, and cut lots of stuff from magazines (she from fashion and mine...well Country Living mostly).
I also used some old ads from 1940/1050 era magazines I've found. Some are pictured on some of my favorite pages. It's really a fun thing to do!
Well, that's what's going on in my corner of vintage land. Hope you are enjoying yours!
