Collecting Collectibles

With so many wonderful collectibles to choose from, I bring to you just a few that I hope will inspire you to look further and browse the fantastic shops located on our awesome Team Vintage Vertigo campus to find your preferred collectible piece (s).  Toiling back and forth with which to feature I came to the conclusion that over time I will try to feature at least one item from every shop on our team.  I know a formidable feat.  So, with no further ado, let's get started and...

Com'on Get Happy!.... with this thoroughly awesome and totally groovy vintage find from the 1970's and one I know a lot of you will recognize and enjoyed watching as a kid.  Like myself, I know some of you have at one time or another said to yourself, "I should start a vintage lunch box collection"?  Well, here for you to start that collection is this...

Collecting buttons for many is a passion.  I remember my Grandmother had several tins of buttons.  I have memories of times when we go to visit and my Mother and Aunts would gather around the kitchen table and sort through buttons and share new one they'd found in their hunts through rummage, garage, yard sales, and swap meets.  Here are a couple of lovely...

Ooohh, such lovely finds! I always look for lunch boxes when I'm out and about but so far haven't had much luck. I loved watching the Partridge Family when I was young. Thanks Dave for showcasing all these wonderful shops - I'll be visiting soon! Linda. :)

I love the Karmann Ghia typewriter! Always wanted a pink Karmann Ghia car, thanks to Pretty In Pink! LOL!

Great finds Dave and I think Dorene's S&P is so adorable.
I too, was intrigued by the hot dog cooker. Ha! A fun vintage piece for sure!
Question - How can I Pin each individual blog. I have a Blog Board and I didn't realize all the blogs I've been pinning have only been of the VV Home Page except for the Frog Blog. Ha!

Leila Blakely said...

Oops - Never mind. I keep seeing the Pin on the right and not the one just below the blog that is 'not' highlighted. Got it!
