today's swap meet haul

It was a great day at the swap meet! I was on a mission for vintage tins and found a couple. The best pick of the day was the lot of vintage Chemex and filters. I also found a few Pyrex bowls (Butterfly Gold and Autumn Harvest) I didn't have yet. All you see in this photo I paid only $23.50 for. What a steal! :)

vintagesugarshop on IG

I recently joined a growing community of ladies and gents who sell on Instagram! I'm moving inventory more quickly, making friends and getting some good deals too! People sell new and used clothing, beauty products, vintage goods and anything else you can think of on IG. It's so much fun!

My IG shop is vintagesugarshop. You can also find my items using #vintagesugarshop. I love listing thrift shop fresh items! Below are just a few things I have for sale. Please stop by, you never know what I'll post on the fly! ;)

Here are a few of my favorite IG shops:

lucy lamb

Here's a sweet little vintage lamb I picked up at a local estate sale. Missing tags, she has been a bit of a mystery to me until I recently found one on Etsy with a tag. Now I know her name is Lucy Lamb #1074 in the "Dream Pets" line made by R. Dakin Company importers, San Francisco, California. Made in Japan in the 1960s. She melts my heart!

from my childhood: childcraft

Found these beauts at a local thrift shop earlier this week! A complete set of vintage 1979 Childcraft: The How and Why Library books, volumes 1-15 plus the 1981 annual The Bug Book. They are currently available in my vintagesugar Etsy shop! I had a set of these when I was a child and they were my favorite books! I have no idea what happened to my set... wish I knew. Luckily my husband still has his set from when he was a child to pass onto our kids. Did every kid growing up in the 80s have these along with the World Book encyclopedias? ;)

onestep heaven

I was super lucky to find these SX-70 OneStep Polaroid Land Cameras at a local thrift for $5 each! I never thought I'd find these in the wild. I guess my daily thrift trips have been paying off! Now all I need is film... :)

This is what I do with empty baby food jars and vintage buttons. :)

surviving christmas

We survived yet another holiday season! And so did these lovelies (in my shops that is). If our house wasn't already filled to the brim and hoarding was socially acceptable I'd keep them all to myself! Won't you consider giving these charming pieces a good home? Christmas will be back before we know it! ;)
