Recent Vintage Finds

Hello friends, today I am sharing a few recent flea market finds.
I love collecting Irmi! Most of these cute Irmi pieces are lamps as this one but, Irmi also created crib mobiles, switch plates and wall hangings.


I couldn't pass up this sweet index box! It's sweet decals caught my eye and then when I saw that it said "crafts" I knew it was coming home with me.


Sweet nursery rhyme decals are on the top and sides of this box!


The one on the back is my favorite!


These vintage coasters were a neat find!

Wishing you a happy day, Lindsey

These things are so sweet!I love the coasters and Mary's lamb is my favorite, too. Of course, I love Irmi things! The little girl on the card you posted yesterday looks like me when I was little.
Wish I was still that cute!

You are so lucky to find such wonderful things. I love the little box. When I was little they sold rub on like that and my mom got some to put on our little play cabinet. My sister has that cabinet still.

Heidi Ann said...

Such great stuff! I would have purchased every one of those things myself!
I do SO enjoy seeing what you find.

You always find the best things at the flea market! I was very tempted by an Irmi lamp on Ebay the other day. It had bluebirds on it, and it was just adorable. I passed it up because I've been buying too much lately, but now I know that I'll be thinking about it forever!

Jacqueline said...

You are such a lucky girl. You must have adjusted your bonnet straight that day because luck was sitting on top of it. The craft box is just the cutest thing I've seen in a long time. If you ever get tired of it...tee hee...I'll take it off your hands in a wink!

Love your sweet box and the lamp. You definitely needed that box! My sister had an Irmi lamp, I was so jealous that I didn't have one, I thought it was the most adorable lamp I had ever seen.

Have a wonderful spring weekend!

I love the little Irmi but I'm never ever seen them to buy. I actually have one from the 60's it was a lamp for my children and I have it by my bed today. It's pink so I'm going to use it this Pink Saturday.

Irmi has been catching my eye lately too. I think I had some when young and didn't know it. I just found your blog and I'm going to poke around here a little while.
