Thrift Haul: Mod/Retro Vases, Batman, Boats, Plaques, Fransiscan Starburst

I've been a very lucky thrifter the last few times I hit up the flea markets and Goodwill pound store, bringing home loads of vintage to freshen up my Etsy Shop and booth at Southern Crossing Antique Mall. Quite proud of myself for listing nearly everything in one night (last night!) too! Here's the beautiful retro goodness:


Starting with some modern art because this Yuko-face juxtaposted with french bulldogs is amazing. I adore French bulldogs and couldn't resist these two paintings on the way home from the flea market. They'll go to Southern Crossing soon.

This is the week of bags! First this vintage bowling ball bag is Chilling on Etsy

Next I scored this gorgeous Samsonite case with floral pattern on the top! See it on Etsy


Speaking of nice suitcases, found this lovely cherry red. It's not on Etsy or in Southern Crossing yet. E-mail me if you'd like it.


The inside has pink and polka-dots! Selling the large suitcase for $15.00 plus shipping.

Love this lime green sewing box as well. Check 'er out on Etsy. Gonna use it to store supplies 'til it sells.


And another beautiful blue satchel bag is hanging out on Etsy

Along with this similar nice brown one with silver feet at the bottom. Nice unisex bag. See it on Etsy

And the boat plaques! The glorious boat plaques I scored yesterday are too lovely. See the smaller one and the larger one Etsy

Along with this gorgeous large wire ship on velvet. See it on Etsy


And more atomic goodness. Anyone have a better ID for this salad or punch bowl? I have it here on Etsy


I ran out of time to list this gorgeous set of vases. I love the orange and the blue juxtaposed with the white. They're going to my Southern Crossing booth but let me know if you'd like to buy any of them.


The boats are glorious in my office corner until they go home with someone. I believe I'll be adding these to Southern Crossing tomorrow.


I don't think these Bauhaus mugs are vintage but they were so pretty sitting in the pound store bin they came home with my anyway. D'oh.


Enjoying them in the living room for the moment. E-mail me if you'd like to buy the set, selling them all for $9.00 plus shipping.

And a gloriously kitschy squirrel. As much goodness as I scored I still think of the similar deer shoppers before me got to! If only I'd have been a bit faster! Noez! Anywho, check it out on Etsy

And this lovely mod deer is too beautiful to behold too. See her on Etsy

How 'bout a nice Shlitz beer bar mirror? See it on Etsy

And a Wildcat Juice beer jug to go with that! See it on Etsy


Awesome industrial lamp, I love the texture. It's displayed beautiful in my apartment at the moment, gotta update with a picture. See it on Etsy

And I love serving trays like this, very fun for creative photography. On Etsy


And Franciscan starburst plates! So beautiful. Check out the set on Etsy
And perhaps a favorite despite all the mod, The God Damn Batman coffee mug! Love the bold graphics and cool colors on these juxtaposed with the yellow! Beauty! See it on Etsy

And with the conclusion on this post I've been working on this haul for 12 hours straight! From the hunting starting yesterday morning to the cleaning, photographing, photo editing, then listing, then a bit of sleep before more listing! I wanted to include many more in this post but some of the picture didn't do well and will have to be re-done. Actually they all need to be re-done but for now, time to get some grub and step away from the computer!

Etsy + It All Must Go: Check out all this goodness as more on Etsy. I've marked a lot of things down and will be flexible on some prices. Things gotta get cleared out, let's get shopping. Christmas is around the corner, after all. ;p E-mail me if you see anything you like and if you want.

  1. Great stuff! Love the Batman mug too. Believe it or not, I have the same shorter white vase. It was my mom's-- from about 1960. I have a piece of the Starburst china in my Etsy store too. Isn't it too cool? My thrift hauls have been rather bleak lately. Hope it picks up soon

  2. It all looks amazing! Do you have good luck selling on etsy? I would think it is difficult for buyers to find things.

    1. I do -really- well on Etsy. Type in the right keywords, list often (new listings appear on Etsy front page and/or higher in search engine) and participate in the community and your items will get a lot of exposure. Furthemore, a lot of customers click through from the blog. My blog traffic is my biggest sales-maker!

  3. These are some amazing things you have. Oh I love vintage! I have the lime green sewing box, but mine was in rectangle shape. :) And I love the bag. Hope you sell all of these. :)

  4. Van,
    You might want to doublecheck your Etsy description for the bowling bag. Unless the one you just listed is white with blue and red accents.

    1. I was listing so quickly yesterday and today that I haven't have a chance to correct a lot of stuff after using the copy option ;p Thanks for letting me know, I'll go through and update all of them with accurate descriptions/better photos as soon as I can.

  11. Dang, those flea markets must be a sight to see down there! Nice haul! I'm totally in love with the Franciscan plates. I sold three large mugs within a few hours of them being listed early this year. A HUGE set was available at a recent estate sale but it was out of my league at $500!

    1. It's all hidden, you still have to dig ;D But yep, they can be awesome to dig through! A dayum, that's a crazy price tag on the set. I always seem to arrive at THAT kind of estate sale, too.
