Great Finds

I took an impromptu trip to one of my favourite little antiques mall on the weekend, this time without kids.  Which meant I could actually browse and examine at my own pace.  The novelty!  I picked up some great little finds.

Danish enamel pitcherI have no idea what I’m going to do with this little yellow enamel pitcher, but I couldn’t resist it.  It’s in great shape, no chips or cracks.  According to the bottom stamp, it’s Danish made – Dansk Design Koben Style, which is still a popular brand today.  I figure the styling, colour and patina make it from the 1970s, but that’s a total guess on my part.

vintage electoulux fanThese retro fans are definitely trendy at the moment, and as such, I haven’t seen one for under $75.  This one was only $38 and it still works.  I’m not sure where I’m going to put it just yet, but I’ve been told it won’t be going in my daughters’ room – they’ve proclaimed it too scary-dangerous!
