Groovy Vintage Finds and More

The nasty weather we've been experiencing has been terrible for foot traffic at the antique mall where I have a booth, but it has been fantastic for Etsy sales!  People are staying home, and wow, are they online shopping.  I'm going to have to work hard to fill my shop back up - nice problem to have, I know!

Here are some of my finds for this week.  I didn't think there would be enough sunlight this weekend to take decent photos, but I spent some time with the camera manual and learned how to crank up the ISO to let more light in the lens.  I think these turned out pretty good considering it was extremely dark inside!

Groovy Recipe Boxes...it's unusual to find three together! 

I love this late 1960s decorating book.  It is full of great ideas and color combinations for mid century style.

This is my favorite room pictured.  Love the green and lucite combination!
 

I thought this green painted vase was so pretty.  I might have to keep it. 

This metal tray was too beautiful to leave behind. 

Fantastic majolica asparagus serving set

Finally,  couple of Otagiri Victorian ceramic houses.  These are probably part of a Christmas village set, let me know if you've seen these before.  I think they might be early 80s?

Thanks for stopping by!  I'll be hanging out at these fine places- check it out!
