What's old is new

This is my place to show off the items I would call vintage, things I have either refinished or kept as is and find interesting. I am still a kid at heart bringing home what some might call junk and am always in search of that buried treasure. I am not a picker and I am not a hoarder, working with my hands on my own time repairing or refinishing the things I find brings me peace of mind and time to myself to contemplate whatever has transpired in my life or time to just zone out and concentrate on the task at hand. Some items for sale or possible trade just ask..click on my profile and send me an email.

Retractable Lamp, Star Trek Thermos, Turquoise and Gold Whiskey Tumblers, Oil on Canvas, Polka Dot Pyrex

Back into the swing of things,some new scores and some I've held for a month or two.
really nice set of whiskey tumblers

Excellent condition Aladdin 1978 Star Trek Thermos

Kirk to Spock! Kirk to Spock!

Very nice large Pyrex Polka Dot mixing bowl

Retractable lamp needs a little TLC on the cloth wire covering

And this monstrosity, 5ft long and almost 3ft high. Oil on canvas with real wood frame. Bought it for just the frame but am rethinking and will likely sell as is. Not sure of the signature but am researching it

    1. I had another similar pull down lamp in my hands a week before that was in better shape but the glass was missing, I should have bought it for the $5 and used one as a parts donor. Always seem to kick myself after the fact.

  2. Some very nice finds! Love the fish motif on the glasses. Those saucer pull downs always sell when I get them in the store. I think I'd keep that painting. It's pretty stunning!

    1. You'd puke if you new what I paid for the painting, glasses and lamp combined. Let's just say McDonalds charges more for a meal than what I paid. The Thermos was a little more and the Pyrex was average, I can still make a profit on them
