Vintage Thingies Thursday


Today for Coloradolady and her Vintage Thingies, I am featuring a couple of items from a recent antique mall trip.

An old Cracker Jack sign.

This is a Betsy Ross miniature child's electric sewing machine. It is from the 1950's time frame and made in the USA by the Gibraltar Mfg. Co. in New Jersey.

What great items! Boy, I ate my share of Cracker Jack as a kid, and looked forward to the prize in every box! Does the sewing machine still work? It's adorable either way!

Maureen said...

P.S. I see you've been renovating your blog. Looks good!

snapperoni said...

Vintage finds are always interesting! :)

I like the cracker jack sign-- the more you eat the more you want. Ah, if only we loved the healthier things in life.

And I would want a sewing machine like that too, better than a new one probably, for my own collection.:)

Love visiting antique malls too. I hope the sewing machine works. If not, it's still a great find.

Great Cracker Jacks sign. I want that Betsy Ross sewing machine in its carrying case...I just love it!

Charlotte said...

Thanks for sweet comments about my mother. Love the Cracker Jack sign! Remember when a box of Cracker Jack meant more to a kid than a video game does to kids today?

Ann said...

Oh, that cute sewing machine reminds me of a little red one that I had as a little girl! I need to ask my Mom if she still has it, because I sure would love to have it. Thanks for bringing back a great memory!
