Vintage Lovers Christmas Wish List

So many of you, like myself, love anything vintage. What better to give someone than something from days gone by. I would be more than excited to open a beautifully wrapped gift at Christmas to find anything vintage inside. From milk glass, to depression glass, to vintage clothing, jewelry, and everything in between you are sure to delight someone on your list with one of these beautiful gifts.

This beautiful 1970's Fenton candy dish is a great gift for the person who seems to have everything. The beautiful ruffled edges and hobnail design make this ruby red candy dish simply stunning. This along with other vintage items can be found in the shop of jenniesjunque on Etsy.

Right now nothing is more popular than bright out-spoken jewelry. Combine that with vintage and you get something amazing! This beautiful vintage pink beaded necklace is enough to tickle any girl's fancy. This can be found in the shop of pinkmilkvintage on Etsy and it's only $8.00! Last but not least, it comes gift wrapped! How awesome is that?

How sexy is this? Almost every woman owns a little black dress, but what about a little black halter jumpsuit? I doubt it. This super sexy chiffon jumpsuit is more than enough to put some sparkle into someones eyes on Christmas day. Or just maybe you want to look extra glamorous for that office party? If so, this is a MUST HAVE! This and so much more awesome vintage clothing can be found in the Etsy shop of tialeyvintage.

It is VERY rare to find vintage pyrex sets especially in such great condition. Well, look no futher. sassboxclassics on Etsy has some great Pyrex sets. I love the durrability of vintage pyrex. This is gorgeous set with the beautiful blue and white coordinating so well together. I don't think anyone would be hiding these in their cabinets with the "other" dishes. Instead they would be best displayed for everyone to see.


I hope you all enjoyed these beautiful vintage finds. I searched Etsy high and low looking for unique, beautiful vintage pieces and these were my favorites. If I could have posted everything from these shops I probably would have. Go by today and visit these shops and find a piece of history, a piece of yesterday, and things from days gone by. Delight someone on your list this holiday season with one of these lovely items.

This Weeks Thrift Store Finds

Ahh, how I love thrift shopping. I think I'm addicted, seriously! I have actually stumbled upon some new thrift stores while on my way to the ones I am familiar with. I so often find myself asking "who gave this away?". Well, as the saying goes, one mans trash is another mans treasure. Only in this case it's WOman. Here's what I've found recently! Have fun looking and show me what you've found thrift shopping.
I found this awesome little compote at a Goodwill store that I so often frequent. It's a vintage milk glass compote by E.O. Brody. It has an amazing texture that is unique and not often seen on other milk glass items. I paid only $3.oo for this one.

I love pyrex and I don't come across it that often. So, imagine how I felt when I stumbled upon this petite pyrex bowl still intact with it's lid. I didn't know what I would use it for or if I ever would use it and I didn't care. I just knew I had to have it. I found this at a local Salvation Army and I paid $1.50 for it!

Milk glass is obviously as much of an obsession of mine as much as thrift shopping is. I was overly excited to find this vintage milk glass lamp. I haven't changed the shade yet, but I plan to do so soon. I found this at a Wing's of Life thrift store for $3.00.

I'm not sure who the maker of these sweet little saucers are, but he/she needs to be complimented. The blue color is so amazing on these. They are milk glass and have a silver trim on the inside and outside of the blue. There is a partial stamp on the bottom of one, but it isn't visible enough to identify a maker. I found these at my local Salvation Army for $.75 each.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing what I've found as much as I have enjoyed finding them and sharing them with you. I have been considering opening an Etsy vintage shop, but I am still undecided. Let me know what you think!
