First Vintage Buys of 2018

I am sticking to my plan of finding some great vintage stuff this month!  I attended a local auction on Saturday and got some pretty great things.  So, let's take a look at what I got...

My favorite find first!  I wish there had been more than one of these.  Since there is only one, it will be a keeper.  It will stay with me in the van, so I have a cool vintage chair to relax in on junking trips.

So, I bought a few vintage puzzles... 59 to be exact (2 came in bags without boxes).
See below for close ups.  If you see one you like, I'm happy to sell.  Just send me an email (click the envelope off to the right) or message me on Facebook or Instagram.

I've owned a few sets of these midcentury shelves.
These might be keepers for my future master bathroom remodel.

2 never opened midcentury Cannon blankets!

A mess of paper dolls.

Quite a few hankies.  I stopped counting... but estimate around 100 of them.

I bought this box lot for the little brush.

Another little box lot.  Isn't the mini tulip jar so cute?

I bought these off of someone - they are old gift wrap boxes.  They do hold some old and new gift wrap scraps.  There were a few never opened packages that have been listed on eBay.

I seem to buy a lot of these.  This Midget one is new one to me.

Okay... so the rest of what I bought are children's books, magazines, and coloring books.  Real eye candy to you bibliophiles out there!  

Several of these books were so tattered, but the graphics are amazing and I don't have the heart to throw them away!

The 4 books off to the right no longer have their covers, but again, the graphics are so great!

Bits and pieces of books with great graphics.

A bunch of coloring books!

And some more!
I don't have a plan for these yet.

If anything book or other item caught your eye - please don't hesitate to contact me.  Everything (except the chair and 2 shelves!) is for sale.  Leave a comment, send me an email, or message me on Facebook or Instagram.

I plan to attend a really big flea market at the fairgrounds this weekend.  So, be prepared for another episode of good junk next week.  You can see my finds from this past flea market HEREHERE, and HERE.

Have a good week,


  1. That was indeed a good junk find! I wish I could justify buying some of the children's books! I enjoy seeing what you find, so I'll be looking forward to what you find at the flea market!

  2. Wonderful finds! I love flea markets too.

    1. Thank you for sharing your vintage finds at Snickerdoodle.

  3. Wow! Great finds! I love all the puzzles!


  4. LOVE that chair! What do you do with all the books?

  5. Oh Melissa, how I wish I could find a vintage washboard here in South Africa. They are so rare and those puzzles are cool too. Great finds

  6. Melissa, what a haul! The auctions here are getting so pricey that I hardly ever buy anything. We used to have an auction where they bought estates and sold the contents. That is where I found bunches like you do. I miss those days. xo Dianne

  7. Wonderful haul, Melissa! Thank you for sharing at Vintage Charm!

  8. Wow, Great finds Melissa! I have a small collection of whisk brooms too. How much is the Smokey bear book? Our youngest daughter loves Smokey. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
