Weekend Vintage Finds

Another great weekend of vintage finds. I was thrilled with this find, a french fry maker. My Mom had one when we were growing up. I don’t remember having french fries a lot (although we did have several other deep-fried items), but I thought this was a cool device. I was almost scared of it.

From the back you can see the little squares the potato gets pushed through when you pull down that red, chippy handle. I can’t wait to try it on my sweet potatoes. We love eating baked sweet potato fries.

I have no idea how old this bread tin is, but I loved the faded colors.  Each side is a little bit different.  Must have been out in the sun.

I laughed when I saw this item.  It is an old Twist exerciser.

Can you see the bottom has a moveable, twisty bottom? So you stand on it and twist your body back and forth.  It is supposed to work your abs.  Probably would work if you used it. I think it would be a cute display piece in a kid’s room.

This old basket was too hard to pass up.  Love the wire handle. Just one handle, so I think it would be hard to carry a heavy load. It too, would make a great display piece.

I came across this sea green hard hat.  At first I thought it was a toy, but as I was looking at it, the lady said it was her brothers from about 30-40 years ago.

Johnson Bros Corporation is no longer in business, I believe.  The inside has a leather protection.  I do believe that it is a real hard hat.

Look at this dish.  I thought the shape was very unique. Not sure if it is a particular brand, I will have to try to find out.

The inside is just as adorable.

My final piece is this silver tray. It is relatively heavy, and I just adore the blue flowers.

So what have you found this weekend?

    • I keep some of it, but I do consign some of it in a local “Junk” shop. I also recentely started an Etsy shop that I hope to sell more things there as well. I really enjoy the hunt to find awesome vintage items.
      My shop is http://www.etsy.com/shop/itsstilllife I only have a few items there since recently opened the shop. I hope to expand it.
      thanks for your comment

  1. Great finds!! I used to have a bread tin just like that. I also had the canisters and hot pads. Actually still have the hot pads and use them to sit hot dishes on at the table. I purchased mine brand new back in 1985 when we built our first home.

I love hearing your thoughts, please leave a comment.
