I love vintage items……..I am surrounded by them in our house. They bring me comfort and I love the way they look it just makes me feel at home and when you are at home that is so important! This stove shown above was used for display purposes at the general store but it was absolutely beautiful. On our travels while we were out with my Dad and Step Mom we went to a couple of antique stores, an old general store, a couple of thrift stores, we went out for barbecue for lunch, and we met with an expert on wrought iron pieces.
The first item I spied was a huge crock and my first thought was how much sauerkraut I could make with one of these however I held off as the price was around $350.00.
The second item was a “Knicker Boxer” icebox the real deal with tongs and all! It was in mint and immaculate condition.
The third item was a “Pepsi” cooler…this would look great in my new sunroom…that is also on my wish list 😉 This is a reproduction of a vintage Pepsi cooler but it’s still awesome! My Dad was with me he told me that my Grandpa had the real deal at his welding shop when he was growing up. That is another plus for going out to vintage shops with your parents the items trigger memories and they will share great stories with you 🙂

The items we actually came home with are the following:
An antique bottle capper:
and a GE vintage fan. I don’t know why but I have a thing for vintage fans and I picked up my second one this past weekend.
These are some of my dream wish list vintage items. What are your dream items? If you could go to antique store tomorrow and get whatever you wanted what would it be? I would love to hear about it.
I wish all of you a wonderful week and for those of you in the cold territory which has dipped into the Carolinas stay warm!
