Vintage Bits - Thrift Share Monday

A visit to Melbourne, FL and thrifting the local haunts this weekend.

1936 Christmas carols booklet and 1950's-ish Wonder book.
(It's all about the graphics!)

Oh yes - graphics galore in this little red "Let's Play and Sing" book.

Stitchy Bits! Palmer and Pletsch, Vogue and Aunt Martha

Old Consumer Reports magazines, circa 1960's! There were more, but I picked for graphics and content. These ones are Christmas Buying Guides (spirograph!!) and reviews on classic (now, anyway) cars.

Vermont tea pot shaped trivet

An obsolete slide storage box - future art supplies organizer, I think!

And a slightly dinged up hand-painted Santa egg. He looks like  he has a black eye, and that amused me immensely in the store!

Joining in today with Selena's Thrift Share Monday and with Sophie Isobel at Her Library Adventures

  1. Love the vintage childrens' books. They don't make 'em like they used to. I have a bunch I am saving to read to my grandson when he is old enough. Lana


Thanks for stopping by!! Love to read your comments - whether on vintage thrifting or creative stitching!! (Comments are moderated due to high spam lately - sorry!)
