This blog post first appeared on my blog Etsy Vintage Tips on 10/27/11
Itching to list some new items in my Etsy shop, but not happy with my just so so banner, I decided it was time to create a new one. Although I initially envisioned a banner that used a photo of a single shop item or a collection of small items as the backdrop, I didn’t have…Continue
LIKE so many others her age, Casey Barber, 33, furnished her home with affordable basics from major retailers, pieces like that requisite “Ikea table that is still making the rounds after all these years,” she said.
But when it came to accessories, M

There were in the good/bad old days many products we wouldn't dream of using today, at least not for the reasons advertised.
But, oh, were they ever ADVERTISED back then!
Some of these products are still around. The media would likely be severely criticized if the products were presented as in the old ads though.
Have a little chuckle on how the public was invited to diet with tape worms, blow smoke in the face of a date, eat lard, and…Continue

I recently bought an antique revolver from an estate auction for $95 and thought I had gotten a real deal, ....so I thought.
I saw the revolver listed in the Auction's detail page, listed as .32 cal H&R Revolver. I did some research online and found this gun listed from $300 - $500. My plan was to buy it cheap, for less than $200, and then turn around and sell it for it's value, maybe $350. I was going to be rich! haha.
As the aution attendees gathered around…Continue

We have heard of expensive jewelry, houses, paintings and other valuable items going under hammer. But for those collectors who are willing to splurge a fortune on celebrity memorabilia from rare photographs to autographed personal items and even on items as bizarre as their teeth, undergarments to celebrity X-rays, fans are prepared to pay high prices to get their hands on…Continue

So sorry I have been inactive lately, I am still unpacking and arranging into our new home, we made a third trip last week of a huge U-Haul and our rented storage shed is full to the brim, it will be hard to go through as it is unloaded the way the movers did it. I believe Christmas is in the back and books are everywhere along with fabrics, china and linens.
I am also trying to do some mixed media projects for the crafts shows up here, SO many fun fabulous places push handmade and…Continue

The Cuban government may be sending a subtle message to potential American tourists that preserved architecture and antiques collections are viewable throughout the island. Four new coffee table books on the subject have been published, and the authors report few restrictions on what… Continue

IT may not be Bergdorf’s, as its owner likes to joke. But the competitive shopping at casaBAN — an antiques store far from Fifth Avenue, in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn — is just as… Continue

If you watch PBS, then you’ve probably caught the tail end of an episode of “Antiques Roadshow,” or even devoted a whole hour to the peculiarly addictive program.
The show is a public television success story. Still, who would’ve thought anyone would tune in to watch Dick and Jane trot out granny’s old…Continue

On my silver flatware website I feature all kinds of silver utensils. Most styles or types are familiar to us but there are some not often used in the U.S.
Like special forks and knives for fish dishes. A lovely shell pattern silver-plated fish dining set by John Biggin of Sheffield, England, is offered on my site. Although it is vintage new-old stock, in uncirculated (never…Continue

The best antique stores in Toronto don't take the fun out of the hunt, they just make it a whole lot easier. While there may be something to a 5 a.m. trip to the St. Lawrence Antique Market or a live auction… Continue
