Well, we can all feel the buzz in the air of the holiday craziness descending upon us. Today's post is just to share a few holiday goodies I have in the shop...some old, some new, all fun and festive, and of course super styley. Forgive me for the Christmas-specific post, but it's a theme for the moment! Have a look:
|Another Taylor and Ng Christmas mug from 1980. I had a similar one sell a week or so ago, and guess what...this one sold to the same customer! That feels nice!|
|I love this pink and turquoise retro angels metal tray. In great condition with the original sticker on the back, it might be too pretty to serve drinks on, but I think it would be perfect in somebody's swanky pad.|
Finally, a while back I found these wooden Swedish candle holders. They're big, about 9" tall! I'm always unsure about this type of item, since so many similar items continue to be produced in Sweden. I of course strive to meet Etsy's "Vintage is 20 years or older" rule. It is hard to tell if these are old are new. Plus, these pieces are in pretty impeccable condition! Luckily, they had a sticker on the bottom:
Google searching showed lots of similar candle holders by this company, but no definitive evidence of age. Deeper into Google, I finally found the actual company website, in Swedish of course. Anyway, I found an email address, emailed the company, and they emailed back to tell me that yes, they still produce these, but this particular set is from 1970! Love that. Doing the right research feels so satisfying.
I hope you all are enjoying your holiday preparations, and if you are a vintage seller, a surge in sales. I've had quite a little rush lately which has been so fun. Hope to blog again before the holiday break from school, but I've been finding it tricky to get it done. Stay busy!
