My Little Thrift Store
My dream is to one day be able to make selling vintage my full-time job. I've always dreamed of opening a little thrift store, and hopefully after my kids get out of college, I'll be able to. For now, I hope you'll stop by my little thrift store. Here on tumblr.

It’s time for summer with these awesome Print Block letter stamps. They would have been used by a small business to stamp signage or flyers. 

They could easily be used today, or for your craft project. You can buy it or other items here

Here is a list of the stamps included:
- (Upper Case) A, B, C, D, E, G, H, L, N, P, Q, R, S, W, X, Z
- (Lower Case) b, c, g, h, j, k, l, m, n, o, p, q, r, s, u, v, w, x, y, Z
- (Symbols) Exclamation Point, Question Mark

Forget your iPod. These have it all!

I don’t know if these were ever even used. In remarkable condition with original box.
My favorite part are the box graphics. The guy playing football with them on… gardening with them on… and on the back… this guy must have the biggest head ever, because the headphones look so small on him. Trust me, these aren’t small - can you say Princess Leia? These Vintage Music Muffs were made in the 1970’s and the box is included. You can find these groovy headphones here

Are you looking to spy on your friends with a vintage camera? Yeah I didn’t think so, but if you wanted to take pictures of your friends than this camera would work even if you can’t “spy” on them. This is a Minolta model 16 P that is relatively small for its time. You can admire it and others like it here

I kept these for a very long time before deciding this wasn’t quite my style but it is still a wonderful set of 10 plates, 8 cups, and 8 saucers. This is a very rare set of fine china, made by Spode Copeland in 1936. Although you will find many varieties of Herring’s “The Hunt” pattern, the fall acorn is by far the most rare. Each setting has its own scene based on Herring’s original drawings. Each cup, saucer and plate are a matched set, with eight different scenes in all. It is in great condition for being 76 years old. You can look at this and other items here

This beautiful folding camera is one of the few of this type that Spartus manufactured. Spartus cameras were made from the 1930s to the 1960s in Chicago, Illinois. It looks like it is in great condition even though the instructions have yellowed with age. It is located here

This Kodak Camera is a wonderful example of the Rainbow Series of box cameras put out in the late 1920’s/ early 1930’s. It is in working condition with only minor scuffing. You can purchase this item and look at other items in my shop here

This unique piece is from the WWII era and is a wonderful display piece for the World War II collector. The filter in the bottom was replaced in 1956 and may contain asbestos so I don’t recommend using it in a zombie apocalypse. You can buy this item here

Just like the Steven Spielberg movie, this Super 8 is awesome!
Heck, I’m throwing in an unopened box of Kodachrome film. If the film is still good, you could make your own movie.

Okay, sue me. I broke the seal on these boxes. 
I just had to be the first to hold them. Both bag and camera are spotless, MINT!

You can buy this and other items from my shop here

Kodak Flash Bantam vintage camera with flash unit, case and more

Definitely one of my favorite Kodak cameras ever produced, this set has it all… The look, the style, and the quality. Kodak Bantam cameras were small folding bellows cameras using 828 roll film and manufactured over the years 1935 to 1953.

The set comes with everything in the second picture including a carrying case and a camera case. You can purchase it here
