Vintage Surprises

I frequently find little 'extras' that shake out of the vintage items I procure for my vintage shop and it's always a pleasant surprise to find these random little oddities.  These are a few of the things that have popped up just over the last 6 weeks or so. 

At some point I'd really like to get these rolls of film developed and see what interesting things they might contain.  If this is your missing library card from 1980 by any chance, let me know.  I'd be happy to return it...

Oddly enough, all of the keys were found in old jewelry boxes.  I really with the typewriter key had come with the typewriter too...  If anyone wants the little silver cross necklace, leave a note for me in the comments.  I'd be happy to send it to you.

I've also found a few little books, maps and other ephemera stashed away in pockets and hidden corners of some things I've gotten.  I'll post those another day.


  1. How cool. A lot of history in those items I would imagine.

  2. I know- if only they could talk and tell the stories of where they've been.... I'm hoping that's exactly what the film will do when I finally get around to developing it.

  3. Fun finds! Every one of those items has a story.
