Welcome to this weeks edition of Vintage Thingie Thursday. I can not believe it is the last Thursday before Christmas...I have got to get in high gear! Please feel free to join this lovely group of ladies who like to display their vintage treasures every Thursday.
Just do a post on your blog, link below to the Mr. Linky link, and visit and comment on everyone who is participating and enjoy a trip back in time looking at all the goodies.
This week, I would like to show you a few vintage Christmas items that I found at an estate sale and a flea market. I think they are fun and some of these vintage goodies took me back several years to my childhood.
I purchased this little book at a flea market a few months back. It is from an electrical company and showcases recipes for Christmas. I just fell in love with the graphics in this book.....and well, the recipes too. This is dated 1963. Too bad it was not 1962, the year I was born, that would have made it even more special. This was a staggering price of $1.00. So worth it.
On the inside of the front cover this cute Santa is waving and encourages you to give electrical gifts for Christmas. LOL. Santa did not know that in a few short years, that would be just about the majority of items purchased.....electrical ones! I think the Santa is just charming. Very 1960's.
Here is a shot of the back cover. This booklet is in very good condition, the colorings and all the pages are in very good shape. I think it is very cute and really fell in love with the graphics.
This little book, I purchased at Goodwill for .50 cents. Can you imagine that? It is a Christmas booklet of Christmas poems. There is not a date on this one, but the images inside let you know it is vintage. Possibly late 50's or 60's.
Here is what the inside looks like, full of Christmas poems and cute graphics and pictures. I think this was a great find to add to my vintage Christmas collection.
Lastly, I want to show you something that I just could not pass up. I was at a local estate sale and in a drawer in the kitchen was a little bag with vintage Christmas Cupcake picks. I had to have them. The whole little bag was a bargain at $1.00.
I was immediately taken back to a time when I was little and to a cardboard box my mom kept full of cake decorating things. This box was always so special to me as a little girl. I loved all the cake decorations she kept in that box and some of these very picks were in the box. I would date most of these back to the 1960's.
You should have seen my daughter look of disgust when she saw this little bag of cupcake picks. She said "What did you want that for?" They look "Yucky." It is plain to see that kids today don't get the nostalgia behind items that pull at your heart strings.......that comes with age.
These little Christmas items took me back to a time when I would sit on my mom's kitchen floor while looking at all the little items in a cardboard box she kept for special occasions. It took me to a time when I would sit and look at the cake decorating magazine she kept in that box, all the while, imagining all the baked treats decorated so lovely with these little items. What am I going to do with them? I don't know. Maybe get myself a cardboard box to keep them in until I decide how to use them. ~good stuff.
I hope you enjoyed all these vintage goodies today. Be sure to link to the Mr. Linky link below and show us what you treasure.
