If I come across vintage tupperware (and even non-vintage) at a garage sale or thrift store, I will undoutedly buy it. Books too. Vintage and non-vintage. I have hundreds and hundreds of books. And I'm working a pretty good tupperware collection too. The vintage stuff is so indicative of the 1950s. My haul the last few weeks has been pretty good. I haven't posted much because I wasn't able to get good lighted photos until the recent time change.

In honor of Valentine's Day, I'm launching Finding Vintage with a pink theme. I'm not all that keen about it and will likely change it, but I wanted to get this blog thing going. Finding Vintage... one of my greatest joys is walking around an antique store, a thrift store, a garage sale... looking for vintage things. One of my longest running dreams is to have a booth in an antique store displaying (and selling) all of my vintage finds. My life is "on the move" yet again and I'm not quite settled where I want to be; so until... Continue reading
