Retro Thermos

4 Oct

Probably one of the most interesting Thermos’ that I have come across in my search for all things vintage.  This very large thermos has no maker’s mark on it but there is an embossed camel on the lid.  It came from an estate sale and was in practically new condition.  Great atomic design on an orange background.

Please note this item has been SOLD!!

Retro Vintage Formica Table and Chairs

30 Sep

We found this great 1950’s formica and chrome  set at an estate sale.  I really liked the atomic look of the table top.  The original vinyl on the chairs was a green and blue floral pattern which was in poor condition.  The table had some wear to the surface but we used a product that brought out the shine and cleaned the surface.  We recovered the chairs in turquoise marine vinyl to match the table top.   To bring out the shine on the chrome legs we used fine steel wool and  it took off most of the dirt and rust as well.  We just loved the way this set turned out and it didn’t last long in the booth.  Someone bought it that same week.  A lot of elbow grease went into this but it was worth it.
