One of my favorite finds was this amazing "Donkey Party" vintage Pin The Tail on the Donkey party set. The Donkey "poster"-of-sorts it comes with is on a canvas-like material and it's damn gorgeous. I love the authentic Mexican painting aesthetic The poster itself (29 inches wide/22 inches tall) would be gorgeous framed and hung in someone's home.
So what's different about my bedroom? What's making my bed more amazing than usual? I may be hard to see with
A Transformers Generation One Flat sheet from 1984! It's a thing of beauty in my room and perfectly goes with the robot art above the bed. Of course you can buy it from me, but I'm enjoying having it around for now.
The cup fetish had to be satisfied! I almost left these "Cornelle by Corning" mugs behind but this set of four mugs and one saucer (odd, but it works) came home with me anyway.
And I love a good, expressive, 1930s classic cartoon ceramic of any kind and this chicken really fit the bill.
The paint is quite faded but I still think it's a lovely piece. I'm trying not to bring home flawed items but it broke through my defenses!
This little "half a cup of coffee" gag cup gets me every time.
Here's another one I went back-and-forth on for a while before it came home with me. I need to re-shoot this piece, it's a bright lime green in person.
The inside compartment is perfect for organizing craft supplies. This would be a sweet gift for a sewing or crafty friend. I'm selling it for $9.00.
I sell unicorns well, so I thought I'd scoop up this cute little unicorn bell. It's more of a gold color in person, 5 inches tall and 2 inches wide. We've been having fun playing with it at the house already.
And continuing the theme, we have a lovely bronze horse happily sprinting.
It seems like these Fisher Price toy apples from the seventies sell well, perhaps it's the childhood nostalgia value sucking people in. This apple rocks back and forth and has a bell inside that sounds exactly like a windchime, it's very soothing. There's a little damage to the left leaf I didn't notice, so I'm selling him for $7.00.
I really appreciate this taped-on note on the back and took care not to damage it while cleaning it.
Funny how I have two vintage finds from my two ethnic backgrounds in this post with the Mexican-inspired pin-the-tail-on the donkey game and now these Puerto Rican vintage souvenir mugs. The contrast of white, brown, and saturated bright colors on these mugs works so well.
The backs are just as beautiful as the front, and I adore the faux wooden texture. These are some gorgeous mugs!
