Seeking Vintage

Searching flea markets, estate sales and thrift shops are some of my favorite things to do. Does anyone remember this? I couldn't believe I saw one...just like a little kid I still have that urge to ride it! Of course all it would have taken is 50 cents and a double dog dare!

I didn't really find what I ventured out for but I did find..."THE GIRLS"
These little vintage toppers had me at first sight!

These are vintage TID BIT TOPPERS. At first I thought they might be a great inspiration for a craft project. Maybe on top of some old wooden thread spools and then decorated the spools with words and paper and who knows what. Imagine these on your cupcakes at your next vintage party or your first vintage party! These gals have even inspired me to have a vintage party!

Thanks for stopping by, I am going to get a Starbucks and maybe plan a party!

  1. A pony exactly like that was in the front of a local grocery store when I was growing up...and they kept the rides to $.01. And those ladies are adorable. I would have snatched them up too!!!
