Well, at least its still January! Been wanting to do this recap all month.
You can read about last year's finds here.
So, in no particular order here are my top 5 vintage finds from the last year.
1. I can't do this list without including something made out of one of my favorite materials: Bakelite!
Remember these super cute salt and pepper shakers?
Art Deco Salt and Pepper Shakers
They are still listed on Etsy, but my price is fairly high. That's how I know that I deep down don't really want to sell them!
2. The next find was only a few weeks months (wow time flies!) ago but both bowls sold already. Yes, I could have kept them. But I don't feel any remorse, so that's a sign I really didn't need them, correct??
Fire King Polka Dot Splash Proof Bowls
3. And it wouldn't be a Recycleista post with some flatware, right?
Oneida Heirloom Shelley stainless flatware
This flatware was da bomb and it made me close to $300. Just a dent in the whole wisdom teeth bill...but I don't want to think about that...so you'll have to read the story for yourself.
4. This was one of the few items I ran at auction on Ebay last year. Most of my vintage finds do go onto Etsy but every once in awhile I go for Ebay and auction format...just for fun and to shake things up a bit. This was just hanging with the rest of the ties at Value Village and I near about fell over. Always the sign of a good find!!
Salvador Dali necktie.
This tie was entitled "Symphonic Fountain" and sold at auction for $192.50.
Okay I said 'no particular order'...but I did save the best for last.
Do you remember what it was?
It truly was a heart stopping moment at the thrift store.
