Vintage Red Vinyl Mid Century Chrome Step Stool

15 May

step stool

We just finished reupholstering and cleaning this mid century chrome step stool.  We used a tough red marine vinyl for the seat and back and put new rubber treads on the freshly painted silver steps. We cleaned and polished the chrome so now it looks great and ready to go to my booth in Almonte, at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON.

Nice and sturdy, great for the kitchen.

Priced at $65.

Please note this item is now SOLD!!!

Rosti from Denmark, Purple and Red Melamine Dishes

9 Dec

IMG_6082

I hardly ever come across Rosti dishes. I find the utensils and mixing bowls and jugs frequently, but not plates and cups. These all have the Rosti mark, made in Denmark.

Most of the pieces in the photo show some utensil wear and usage but since I have never found these in any large amount before, I thought they would be worth having even with the wear and tear.  The colours are still very vibrant.  The two lug bowls are not Rosti but complement the colours of the Rosti.  The colours are a deep purple and bright red.

The dishes will soon be for sale in my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte, ON,just 30 minutes west of the city of Ottawa.

Priced separately at between $2 and $4 each  piece.

Please note the red dishes are now SOLD!!

Vintage Coco Chanel Striped Yellow and Clear Vinyl Purse

7 Dec

IMG_6063

Vintage Coco Chanel yellow vinyl and clear vinyl striped purse.  The shoulder strap has some wear along the edges.  This may be a reproduction, but I don’t know for sure.  It is still a very nice example and would be great for toting things to the beach in the summer.

Will be for sale eventually at my booth in Almonte ON, at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street.

Please note this purse is now SOLD!!

Pink 1950’s Mixmaster Junior by Sunbeam

This mid century Mixmaster Junior by Sunbeam works perfectly.  The beaters turn easily and the motor sounds great.  Obviously well used and loved by some baker somewhere, there are lots of scuff marks on the surface but the pink colour is much rarer to come by than the chrome or white.

For sale at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte, ON.  Just 30 minutes west of the city of Ottawa.

Priced at $25.00.

IMG_6057IMG_6059

Probably circa 1970’s.  Nice overall condition on this large lazy susan, with mushroom decorated relish inserts and center cutting board.  Two vintage polka dotted shakers were added to the photo since they are the same vintage.  The caps are plastic and the shakers are glass.

For sale at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON, just 30 minutes west of the city of Ottawa.

Priced at $25 for the tray and $6 for the shakers.

 

Fire King Peach Lustre Dishes, ca. 1950’s to 1963

1 Oct

IMG_5894

Fire King Peach Lustre dishes in the Laurel pattern and 3 band pattern.   First made in 1951 and continued production until 1963.  Hard to find in really nice condition as the finish tended to wear off after continued washing.  These are all pristine.  These should never be put in a dishwasher or scrubbed vigorously.  The finish can last quite well with care.

The dinner plates are all sold, but I still have in stock cups and saucers at $5 a set, chili bowls at $8 each, mugs at $6 each, cream and sugar are $5 each. Mini casseroles in the copper tint colour are $3 each. Small dessert bowls are $3 each.

For sale at my booth at the Amonte Antiques Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON, just 30 minutes west of the city of Ottawa.

 

Chrome Table, with Red, Black and White Formica, ca. 1950’s.

IMG_5921IMG_5916

This is a really nice smaller sized formica topped chrome table, ca. 1950’s.  It has a unique plaid patterned top and bevelled wood sides.  It comes with one extension leaf and could sit 4 to 6 people.  The top is in great condition, nice and shiny and not too much wear.  The chrome is in fairly good condition. Missing a couple of rubber tips for the legs, which are harder to find for the double chrome tubed legs.  We are on the hunt for them.   The chairs were purchased separately at another sale, but they do go well with the table.  They are in fairly decent condition, and the vinyl is in good shape.

For sale at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON, just 30 minutes west of the city of Ottawa.

Priced at $265.00 for the set.

We picked up another nice mid century formica table recently. This one has some spots on the chrome legs that are worn, but still a nice table overall.  We replaced the rubber tips on the legs and cleaned up the surfaces.  It does have one extension leaf that goes with it so it would seat six easily.

This table is at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market , 26 Mill Street, Almonte, ON, just 30 minutes west of the city of Ottawa.

The price is $75.00.
