Today's Best Vintage Buys

Most "Reminds Me Of My Childhood" Find
is this cute wooden doll's bed & wardrobe set - it is painted pale lemon & has the original transfers. The wardrobe has shelves & a little hanging rail for doll's clothes. I had one like this in blue all those years ago! I am going to dress up the bed of course - I need a piece of foam for a mattress....any ideas where I could get a small piece?



Most Dolly Find
is this set of 6 wooden Polish dolls with their big red shoes.


Most Pretty Find
goes to this pretty 1950's toast rack bedecked with roses.



Most Noisy Find
is a pair of Chad Valley tin tambourines!


Most Christmassy Find
is this big selection of vintage Christmas cards dating from the 1930's - 1950's
all from the same family.

  10. What great finds, the little bed and wardrobe are lovely and would make a great Christmas pressie for a little girl. I recently found an identical toast wrack and also bought some of the Polish dolls, I can't resist them.

  12. I HAD ONE OF THOSE TAMBOURINES!!!!! I loved it! I have no idea where it came from or where it went and had completely forgotten about it until I saw that picture.

    And I love the Christmas card with the terriers. I may have to pop over to your other site and buy it!

  13. Loved the dollies, had a sailor one myself - didn't realise they are Polish. Also liked the vintage cards - have a box full at home and looking for some inspirational ideas to re-invent them! Angela
