Sponsor Giveaway #2


My favorite part of running a vintage Etsy shop is definitely the treasure hunting! It's an adventure that starts when I go on the hunt & goes on after a customer purchases that special item! I imagine the life it is going to live & the sure joy it will bring the new owner!

-Emily

xoxo,
Rachel

My favorite find has been a huge brass peacock wall hanging that I'm going to spray paint red! :)

Whenever I go thrifting (which, sadly, isn't that often) I'm always on the hunt for vintage cameras and typewriters. I've yet to find any amazing ones though. :[

Linnea said...

I think my best find(s) has to be my "rainbow" Pyrex bowl set. I searched the local thrift shops high and low for many weekends and managed to find each one at some point or another. I resisted temptation more than once to just buy them at the over priced antique stores and I am so happy I did because I enjoy them even more knowing all the work that went into finding them.

Bri Bri said...

OMG! I want those skates so badly! Awesome!

My favorite find... my cousin is having a baby. She loves Carebears. While thrifting for nothing in particular I found a care bear lamp... blue sleepy bear. SO CUTE! She loves it!

Nicole Monique said...

With a recently turned three year old it is difficult to thrift as often as i'd like but my favorite thrift find has to be a lovely vintage jumper for my daughter, Lily. There's just something about a vintage clothing item and the history behind it. I love imagining the child who previously wore it and wondering what kinds of trouble they got into wearing it.

mle jean said...

so many treasures, I love thrifting. My favorite would be vintage Fendi purse for $1.99. :)

Autley said...

I had the large and small American Tourister suitcases once, but my ex fiancee got rid of the large one without my permission. :( Whilst thrifting one day I came across the vanity case for the same American Tourister set. Not only that.. but there was a note attached that she also had the large suitcase available! This made me so happy I actually cried. haha. I gave her a call and picked it up the next day. Now my set is complete! :D

chelsea rebecca said...

ohh i love the Vintage Green Ceramic Red Apple Mug and the Vintage Blue Floral Teapot! so cute!!!

starsanderin said...

I like the vintage woven fabric, the metal owl trivet and the 7up bottles!!

Love the store name as well!

starsanderin said...

Today I went to Goodwill Outlet where each pound of clothing equals $1.49 and the books are all 29 cents -- amazing. I also love all the jewelry I have found at estate sales. Fun fun fun.

suitecheeks said...

if my town had any good thrifting stores i know i would gravitate towards anything with owls, and possible cookware. I love crazy patterned or colored plates and such.

Miss Anne said...

Nadine said...

I can't find any thrift stores my area
so I usually prowl online. I adore
my vintage crayola set (:

Stephanie said...

My favorite has to be the Vintage Green Tower Typewriter...I have wanted one for so long... :)

amy lapi said...

my favorite hunt was in springfield last weekend. rachel told us the BEST places to visit. :]

K. Davis said...

one of my most favorite treasure finds, was found while on a cruise with the husband in Greece. We were on the island of Mykonos and riding around on scooters. I saw a shop that said "Antique with also a bunch of Greek around it", but knew we had to stop and take a peek. I'm so glad we did, because we found this amazing wooden bread dough form, and although it was mighty huge, we managed to pack it with ourselves on the tiny scooter, and head back to the ship. It's one of the greatest finds that I have, and how we got it home from our cruise is a whole other story!!

ladybug said...

My most favorite treasure find is a 70's floral dress I found hidden in my mother's closet. She wore it on her engagement day!

Dee said...

hmmm, so many but i think my roll-top writing desk wins :)

in company with sparkles said...

My dad has always done treasure hunts for the 'big present' at our birthdays, at least when I was little. I loved that! My favorite surprise thrift store find was a beautiful, bright Mexican blanket in Texas for $5. I had room in my suitcase and snatched it!

Krystle said...

My fav find was a black 1950's Del Monica record player...that WORKS. I can't take all the credit for the find though because my dad was the one who actually realized what we had found.

Meg said...

My biggest treasure find was when I found my granny's jewellery box. She has some really nice stuff in there! Oldschool beaded necklaces and also necklaces bracelets that look like made for a princess :)

TheseLovelyThings said...

My best finds were actually at my own home. My mother was cleaning everything and wanted to throw away some beautiful old vintage suitcases that belonged to her grandmother at some point. Can't imagine why you want to get rid of those. So I saved them :)

fridica said...

My favorite was a crickety old grandpa's bicycle, which was ridiculously cheap and served its purpose relentlessly!

Jolie said...

My favorite thing is the vintage metal owl. How cute!!!

LACEANDLEATHERVINTAGE. said...

my favourite place to hunt is actually my grandparents house, where i found tons of vintage shoes, the most amazing vintage evening dresses, a typewriter, and a record player, all of which they let me keep :)

xo.

Waffellebelgium said...

i think my best find was a huge framed print called oceania by david weidman. it was the best thing i think i have found in a great while.

Kristin Ann said...

The best thing I have ever found was a large collection of vintage wallpaper from the 60s-80s. I bought about 80 rolls and now use them in craft projects as well as sell them on etsy. Quite the find!

Suzy said...

I actually rather new to thrifting, I never really had any luck.

My fav. find is this vintage '60-'70ish aqua blue dress I found at Good Will. Vintage dresses always fit funny, but this one fit perfect and it's just so cute!

seekingequipoise said...

My favorite finds are my vintage cameras.

Anna said...

the best treasures I find are the ones that remind me of something my mom or grandmother had.
i love the yellow and black pyrex bowl and the wide eyed panda art she has! her shop is filled with lovely (and moderately priced) treasures. a new fav!

Sarah said...

My favourite thing to hunt for is knitting needles! My local thrift store has jars and jars of them for 25 cents each! I have bought sooo many.

Dixie said...

My favorite fine which I go looking is for vintage pyrex. I went to the Goodwill yesterday and found 2. So excited. Got one for .99 and the other for 3.99. If I went to an antique store they are anywhere from 20.00 up. I don't find them much there but when I do I get so excited.

Andrea said...

I haven't been to a thrift store in years, this is making me want to go. I know what field trip we'll be going on next week!

Claire said...

I'm always on the lookout for ornate frames that I can spray paint pretty colors. I don't usually find any, the thrifting is not too great where I live. But last weekend I found one, and it is going to be a lovely avocado green. :)

Alexis said...

my favorite find was a beautiful hand-blown purple glass bowl. My mom collected purple glass, so it reminds me of her!

kadhy said...

my best fund were the stamp-letters helvetica. the whole alphabeth. i love them!

Joyeful said...

My favorite find was an wooden hand crafted italian pink pig for two buckaroos. I LOVE it. And of course, I'm always super excited to find vintage fabric in the colors i love.

Oh, no, wait--my newest fave find is a set of retro booster seats for my twins!

Sarah C said...

I'm an avid thrifter - so it's hard to pick just one find!!

But my all-time favorite is probably the mini yellow slide projector screen we scored for 3.99. My husband transformed it into a christmas tree this year, and it was just amazing!

Tawny said...

My favourite vintage find was kind of a "re-find". My mother had given away one of my favourite cloth dolls when I was a kid. She was made of pink gingham and had a hat that resembled the same hat I had to wear during my stays at the hospital when I was little. I was heartbroken that this doll was gone.

Well one day, I was walking down the street doing some window shopping, and guess who was looking at me through the window? My pink doll! She was a steal at 75 cents. I cleaned her up and she's a valued part of my family today.

Hearthandmade said...

My fave find is a nasty 1950s pitcher i bought for £2 at our local drop in ministries. It excited me so much because it was almost identical to the RICE DK version thats available now for £17! Bargain :)
Love the blog

kat-fit said...

i love the vintage kodak movie camera

stephanieesstar said...

The best thing I have ever found is a framed needlepoint in pinks and greens and oranges that says "Dear house, You're really very small, just big enough for Love, that's all."

It is so sweet and perfect for our tiny little home!

Rachel said...

My favorite thrifted item is the old blue chippy blue dresser that we found for my sons room at an antique store...it is perfect for his room!

mrs boo radley said...

I've already thought of many uses for the vintage green metal file box with key! xoxo

Jam said...

I'm a little boring. I collect buttons. I'm always on the look out for unique ones. I found a HUGE one the other day and the lady gave it to me for free. SCORE!

Abi Porter said...

I'm on the hunt for a typewriter and vintage sewing machine..

Mim Smith Faro said...

My best finds have been a typewriter from the thirties which included the case and the instructions!

Clothing wise- I found the most beautiful black dress from the 40s that my teenaged daughter has worn several times now. I found it at the Goodwill for $7.00 :)

Randi said...

My favorite vintage find was an old 80's Micky Mouse telephone in perfect condition. I don't even have a house phone line to hook it up to, but he sure makes me smile!

Kim Smith said...

My favourite find was a pair of shoes!

I never have good luck with shoes, especially at vintage/charity shops- so when I walked into my local oneday, there they were. glorious black and white, shining off of the floresent light. oh! Spats! And in perfect condition, hardly been worn and in my size.

I wear them when I want to feel super special and they always make a good impression at art college. [:

Love this shop. (haha, i just went and favourited half of it!)

lauren ♥ said...

my favorite treasure hunt has yet to happen... i moved across the country about 5 years ago, and now that i have a 2 year old, i've been remembering all the great toys i had as a child, that are stashed up in my parents attic. i will be visiting them in 10 days, and i am excited to search for all my old treasures up there! <3

Courtney said...

I found this 'Olive Oyl' skirt at a thrift store about five years ago and I swear that I've been wearing AT LEAST twice a week since then. It's kinda ugly, really comfortable and just totally me. I love it and will NEVER get rid of it!

Emma Hertel said...

my favorite was a vintage sewing pattern & an awesome record! but i really want a type writer!

Holly S said...

Mine is from a local consignment shop-a medium sized glass container with a glass lid and glass impressions on all sides.

Jen said...

Jen said...

Gosh, my favorite recent finds have been vintage tablecloths. The awesome, printed ones. I've started my collection with 2 of them I got for less than $1 each. So excited!

Laura said...

The favoritest thing I've found is an entire tea set for $8! The pot and 4 little cups are so sweet and perfectly intact. Now I can do tea parties with the ones I love (:

{Anna} said...

I have to say that my favorite item is a dorky geometric sweater. I can just imagine myself throwing it over all my clothes and running around the house all snuggly and warm. Haha.

Stefan, Sarah and Lukka said...

I once found a BEAUTIFUL. PRISTINE.PERFECT. teal typewriter for $20 (!!) and I didn't pick it up...we were pretty poor for awhile and I couldn't afford it. I went back a few days later just to see if it was there and it wasn't...I always hope I see it again sometime, since now I'd be able to afford it 'just to look pretty' in our house. Oh well, I'm sure it has a happy home! :)

scarthur said...

Love the typewriter! I am always looking for one! Love the vintage yellow sugar bowl also!

Tristan and Adam said...

oooh, i'd take that daisy teapot! I've been looking for one just like it =)

Ashleigh said...

Hmm, my favorite find was a 1940's secretary desk. I got it for free, and it completes my living room. I painted it bright blue. Also all my amazing pyrex and cathrineholm finds. Every time I find them in my local thrift store I wanna scream with excitement.
-Ashleigh

Jessica said...

I like the aqua wooden frame! So cute, love the color.

Crissy said...

I love finding jars of vintage buttons, oh yeah and lots of little owls. :o)

Katie said...

Hmm, my best find is a toss up between a little yellow plastic coffee pot (that works!) and a beautiful sky blue ceramic teapot.
Both are super cute AND useable! Plus, they cost me about $5.
Yay for thrifting!!

I once found a completely refurbished Hoosier cabinet--painted mustard and turquoise--for 120 dollars. I literally jumped up and down when I saw it. Lawrence Antique Mall is the greatest!

ashlee said...

neoncake said...

I think my most favorite find would have to be all of the vintage bowling bags I have found!!

cindy said...

My favorite treasure is two part. Part 1 my vintage royal quiet de luxe type writer. which is so beautiful for my crafting needs. Part 2 the 13 ribbon spools found at my favorite thrift store just two weeks ago. Making my typewriter workable. I am the happiest crafter from the moment I started typing. Love treasure hunts, I always find something I never knew I neeeded.

erica1228 said...

my favorite find is actually an old 60s type writer. I took it apart and spray painted it aqua. i love it! I also found a really old (70s?) owl embroidery (: too fun!

Emily said...

One of my most favorites is an oooooooooold owl I have in my front room. It used to belong to my Mother-in-Law and was the first thing I snatched when they moved and decided she didn't want it anymore. He perches happily on our book shelves and is delightfully fuzzy!

Emily said...

Thank you so much Rachel for hosting this giveaway! I love reading about everyone's treasures/hunts! Good luck to everyone!

~Emily "pirates b00ty"

Teresa said...

I just went to a St Vincent shop and found a wooden wall piece. It has four slats perfect for chalk (for my chalkboard), mail and whatnot.

I still have to paint it, but what a steal for 29 cents!

I'm always on the look out for neat antique sewing thimbles.

pinksuedeshoe said...

My favorite hunt was for the perfect rocking chair. I found it, bought it and then someone else took the sold sticker off and bought it themself before I got back to the store with our bigger car to pick it up. Worst day ever. I eventually found another chair, but it will never replace that first one, which I never even really had! (if you are into sad storeies, it is here http://pinksuedeshoe.com/2009/08/15/big-stupid-lame/ )

Hanna ♥ said...

A lovely pink hat that I found in a little corner. ♥ Still love it.

Kim said...

My all time favorite find has to be my polka dot pyrex bowls! They are just awesome! I love them! I see so many awesome things in her store too! I just love that feeling you get right before you walk into a thrift store! I just love it! xoxo Kim

Mini & Mod said...

I haven't had much luck with thrift shopping yet, but I always keep my eyes peeled when I am outside taking my dog on a walk. I never find anything of value, but the best thing I ever found was a beautiful purple flower someone must have dropped out of a bouquet. I kept it and put it in a little vase in my room. My mother thinks I'm a pack rat.

katiebug92 said...

I have abunch of the crazy daisy/spring blossom green vintage pyrex bowls, so I am always on the lookout for some. :)

Ashley Ann said...

Treasure hunting is so much fun!

Olivia said...

I so had that Fisher Price xylophone as a child!

I am a bookworm so my favorite treasures are always buried in dusty boxes at flea markets or used book stores where an old favorite is spotted and brought home with me.

Allyson said...

Recently, I found a set of bowls to match my grandmother's plates she handed down to me!

HollyandGary said...

I have a thing for vintage colored glass compotes. They are rarely in my local thrift stores so my collection isn't large, but I treasure the colors they throw on my walls in the afternoon light.

Amanda said...

I will have to say that some of my favorite vintage things I have are from my grandparents home after they passed. Things that I had never seen before. The first thing that comes to mind is the vintage picnic basket that I was able to keep. I love it!

MiniMak said...

I LOVE the Vintage White Enamelware Colander!!! So pretty!

Oh thrifting is so much fun because it is a treasure hunt! The best thing I ever found was a Little Golden Book called 'The Cat who Climbed the Christmas Tree' with an orange cat on the cover climbing a tree. Well that same year my orange tabby climbed my christmas tree constantly. It was the perfect book for me!

Hmm...lots of good finds. I just found my favorite dress EVER! I have to do a little alteration for a better fit though. But my all-time favorite find has got to be, hand-downs, the irish ring I found at an antique mall for $25. Irish Sterling ring made in Dublin, hallmark of 1802. I loves it.

rockandcookies said...

Years ago, when my collection of vintage Pyrex only took up three small shelves, I was thrifting with my sister when I rounded a corner and my.heart.stopped as I laid eyes on a matte black casserole dish with white snowflakes printed on it, complete with its lid. I grabbed it and hugged it to myself as the lady that was right next to it looked at me as if I was possessed. Maybe I was, but that piece still makes me excited when I see it, even though I have since aquired more of the same pattern.

Kathlyn said...

I once found a laptop-sized vintage floral suitcase for a steal of $18 (they usually go for upwards of $40!) I absolutely love it and use it now to keep my fabric organized.

kristen said...

my favorite find was an old picnic basket. oh, i love picnics! and thrifting!

sarahjane said...

Last summer I found a plastic molded Popeye head money bank for our three year-old son! It's large and pop-ish and cartooney. . . and wonderful! It's dated in the 70's and maybe cost me 50 cents. The boy has an intense love for Popeye, so this find was a huge hit!

Becca said...

My favorite find recently was a vintage baby doll highchair I found at a local antique shop to put in my baby girl's nursery! So fun!

Cailie said...

Sweet shop! It's like going thrift store shopping online! I like a wire basket and white fruit bowl.

daisy-chum said...

My favourite find isn't something I've thrifted but a small china owl I found at a bus stop!

c*reabain said...

My fav thrift store find was a pair of barely ever worn champaign colored stuart weitzman heels buried beneath piles of shoes at the maui salvation army. I still wear/love them 4 years later!!

tabitha jane said...

that roller skate picture reminded me of the time my best friend and i drove all over town looking through the thrift stores for old quad roller skates. eventually we found two pair - one in my size and one in hers! we both skated that night for the first time in 10 years! so fun! and now? i play roller derby!

smileyeyes said...

I can't believe she has the Corning ware Cornflower set... Its what my grandma used to use... Memories!!! -Katie

Liza said...

My favorite find was a few years back at an estate sale in Connecticut. I found some antique silverware with my family initial. The sign said .05 per piece. I had about 40 pieces in my basket, but when they went to the went to add it all up, the lady said I could have it all for $1.00!! I was so excited! At that same sale, I found an old high school Home Economics text book! Chapters included how to, set a proper table, sew a hem, and how to clean your room, and proper grooming habits. I loved it!! Got it for $1.00 too. Wish I lived in Connecticut, because I would have bought so many things there. But I had to get all this stuff back to California on a plane - blah!

Amanda said...

I haven't found much, but I already know that I'll use this to buy something for my nephew. I do want to build up my Feistaware collection with vintage pieces...

becca said...

i once found an awesome vintage camera at a thrift shop for 15 bucks. it was hidden away under piles of junk and it still worked!

Today Hilary... said...

I like to go to UNIQUE - kinda like a large hyperorganized thrift store...

Eve said...

My most popular nightmare is where I stumble across a garage sale/ thrift store FULL of vintage fisher price toys and they won't sell me any.

I've had a little luck at garage sales, once I found the xylophone pictured for a quarter. I brought it back to the car and my 16 month old said "ooooooh!!!" when she saw it. She totally got it. :)

Riacassa said...

my story about "pirate's booty" might be a little more literal than most...

my grandmother died of breast cancer when i was about 6, leaving me with precious few memories of her. one of my favorite memories occured when i was about 4 or 5. she and my grandfather lived on the chesapeake bay so there was a little beach in her backyard. one fall when my family was visiting she told me that she had seen pirates circling the bay in the evening. being an impressionable little girl i believed her. the next morning she walked me down to the beach and excitedly drew my attention to a bottle in the sand. within the bottle was a map of my grandparent's property with a big red X marking the sand a couple yards away. we raced over to the marked area and i shovelled into the sand a few inches until i hit a metal box. within the box were many exciting "pirate" treasures including a beautiful brooch. i was convinced that it was REAL pirate's booty, much to my grandmother's delight. i am so grateful that she managed to give me so many lovely memories in the little time that we had together. that was definitely my most memorable pirate's booty that i have uncovered in my life.

katydiddle said...

My favorite find was Totoro bento boxes!!!

Megan said...

The vintage yellow bunt pan! It is so lovely and would have a perfect home in my kitchen. :)

Francinapaperina said...

Many years ago I stumbled upon a soup bowl at Milano's Flea Market. I use it everytime we have guests and it always brings out the "My goodness this is cute..."

thursday said...

Hmmm, this one is hard. I have so many favourite finds. Maybe my formica topped table. It reminds me of a country western shirt. And it was only $5.

jackiek said...

Oooo, my favorite find was a vintage costume necklace made of various shades of green coral (eek, I think!). I found it one day while hunting with my mom during an all day thrift store shopping extravaganza! It was soo pretty, and I wore it all the time.
