Vintage Thingies Thursday






Vintage Thingies Thursday brought to us by Coloradolady is a wonderful place to browse.  Just like walking the flea markets, thrift stores, estate sales, etc.  Just sit back and enjoy the sharing of vintage goodies.

     
 
One day when I was making the antique malls, I saw this strange looking item.  At first, not sure what it was. Upon on further checking, it was a  refrigerator. It was a GE top, monitor  refrigerator introduced in 1927.  It was one of the most recognized vintage refrigerators. Believe it or not this was before my time. Time really does change our lives and lifestyles.

My Dad used to talk about having an icebox in the summer porch. I guess they might have thought this was pretty cool in 1927!.

I don't know if I would have guessed what that was. Sandie

It was before my time, too. But I guessed right!!! The ones even before this were called ice boxes.

Vintage appliances are so fun aren't they?! That thing on the top is almost as big as the refrigerator. ;)

Happy VTT!

It looks like everyone agrees that today's Frig is a definate keeper, but the 1927 ice box is very interesting. I bet it could tell some good stories. Wow...GE has been around for a long time. Neat VTT post, LV. Thanks for stopping by CITexas Gal and seeing my Vintage Aprons. I have been hankerin' to make some lately. Guess I'd better crank up my Singer Featherweight. Have a great weekend...hope to see you for Pink Saturday...Sue

Great vintage share! When I get my garage cleaned out I have an old trunk I am going to come over to Suzanne's and share! It belonged to my folks and I think one of my grandparents too! I love that trunk!
