It’s been a while since I did a shopping post, but that’s mainly due to the fact that I’ve not been able to do a lot of shopping lately. But I’ve finally managed to get out a bit, and so can show you the things I thought were interesting, but that I did not buy. The items are from a variety of local venues.
The picture above is a painted pillow cover. I called it “Two lovers adrift.”
This beautiful 1920s box originally held fragranced soaps.
Here’s a potato chip can for The New Era Scientifically Processed Potato Chips. The chips are so healthy that they are good for athletes.
They were made from that healthy substance, hydrogenated vegetable shortening.
This adorable little nautical shirt was made by Catalina, and was for a child. How about that Breton shirt the sailor duck is wearing!
I’d never seen the label before, but it is similar to the labels Catalina used in the later 1950s.
Here’s a hat devoted to my favorite golf hole.
Being in the East (but not in Nashville) , I don’t see a lot of western wear, but these women’s pants were really nice.
Proof that there are still bargains to be found, these 1920s shoes were priced at $6! The condition is better than my photos look, as the cracks are on the surface and would be covered with polish.
Here’s a new one on me – a hankie greeting card. And the inside:
A shipboard romance triangle in the making…
And finally, I spotted this rack of dresses in a local antique mall. I’ve learned from experience not to get too excited about a rack of clothing because they often contain the seller’s closet rejects. But in this case the rack was full of 1930s and 1940s frocks. You just never know.
