Does this just scream 1950’s. With the vinyl covering, it reminds me of things my parents had in our house when I was little. This weekend I was able to hit several garage sales and one estate sale. The estate sale was a gold mine. When I saw this, I knew I had to buy it. What is it? Here it is.
It is a sewing stool. It is in excellent condition. Not a tear, rip or stain. It even opens for sewing storage. I really wanted to keep it, but I am sure someone else will love it, so I have consigned it.
Can you just see a housewife of the 50’s using it to sew clothes for her children? I am sure this stool would have stories to tell.
Here are a few more items I found.
This side table is amazing. I love the scalloped lids on the lower half. This piece I am going to redo. Probably paint it, but not sure what color yet. But I love the lines.
This is a vintage Plan-a-Kitchen set. It has a leather case and straps. I wonder if it was a professional that used it or a man who just wanted to design a great kitchen for his wife. I intentionally said man, because I doubt that to many women were designing kitchens when the kit was new although there must have been a few. I have consigned this because I know there is someone out there that had a parent who used it.
This vintage tin is so cute. If my boys were little I think it would be a great decoration or storage container in their room. But they are no longer little, so I did consign this one as well.
This fish cage is different. I don’t think it is that old, but I think it would be fun to take the blue cover off and use it as a hanging in the house filled with Duplos or stuffed animals.
This aluminum coffee pot was probably my favorite find. It is Walker Ware. I hadn’t heard of that brand before. It definitely was used over an open fire. I am keeping this one to display in my house.
So that is just a few of my finds. Do any of these items bring back memories?
