Hi everyone! In yesterday’s post about the Sharon Springs Victorian Holiday Celebration, I mentioned that I may have picked up an antique or two at the event, and that I’d share them on today’s Vintage Finds post. I’ve not decided yet which are keepers (Christmas gifts from my sweet husband) and which will ultimately be for sale here in my blog shop or at my booth at the Gristmill. In any event, here they are, my purchases from the two shops in town:
This street sign was the first item that caught my eye–nice shape, great name, cool chipping (cost: $25.00). The only problem is, I have a strange, niggling feeling that it might be a reproduction. What do you think?
I love a nice cow bell and this one came with what seems like its original leather strap ($10.00).
I need another cutting board like a hole in the head, but I like the color and shape of this handmade one (cost: $5.00).
It has some paint running down the side that I’ve decided adds to it’s character (as we like to say in the biz), a nice old leather strap of its own.
My final purchase at The Roseboro was this wooden box, perhaps a small traveling case(?) (cost: $35.00).
Tacked to the top of the lid, this nameplate announces the former owner. Interestingly, we have Oathout’s in our family tree.
Across the street, in the Heritage Living Country & Vintage shop, I found this old ice cream scoop with the awesome heart-shaped turn-key top (cost: $12.00).
The tin scoop and cast iron handle are soldered together.
Inside, on the brass blade, it’s marked “Clad’s Disher” (sometimes mistaken for “Dad’s Disher” because the ‘Cl’ is not clearly impressed in the brass). The turn-key rotates the brass blade to release the ice cream. Valentine Clad of Philedelphia manufactured this early, mechanical scoop around the turn of the last century.
I fell immediately in love with the sloping shoulders of this huge, 1940’s Hazel Atlas jar. At the moment, it sits on my kitchen peninsula, filled with faux snow, bottle brush trees, and an antique Putz house (cost: $12.00).
Thanks so much for stopping by today–
