February 21, 2017Shopping for Antiques in Tucson!
By Sara In AZ
Mike and I decided to make a quick day trip to Tucson recently and, of course, we had to stop in at a few antique shops along the way. Let me tell you – the vintage/mid century stuff is getting harder and harder to find! Eeps! Be sure to snap it up if you ever see anything you like if it is at a good price!
While we did not see a lot of really great mid century stuff, there were a few cool things I took some pics of…..let’s check it out!
I adore chalkware lamps….these Continental Art Company lamps are no exception!
Unfortunately, no shades are with the lamps….the price was $198.
This vintage cooler had me at the graphics…….sweet!
But we didn’t have it in the funds to spend $62 on this vintage cooler.
I was seriously in love with this vintage clothes pin bag, it would have gone home with us if I didn’t already have another clothes pin bag! This was $12.
I *almost* bought this cork desk caddy for $5…..but we just don’t have a lot of spare room on the desk so I left it behind. Home it goes to a FAB new home!
And finally…….vintage mailboxes!!!! EEeeEEEeeeEEeeeeeeEEeeee!!!!! Oh gosh, I wanted one of these SO badly – you have no idea!!!! Unfortunately, one of these mailboxes just isn’t in the cards for us at this house…bummer!
The price though…it seems SO cheap at $38! I don’t even think you could buy a cheap new one for that!
I can just imagine one of them painted turquoise and black….SO cool!
Stay tuned….next Tuesday we will be having more Tucson fun!
