Vintage Radios for Vintage Thingies Thursday


Please join me over at Coloradolady, where Suzanne is our wonderful hostess and we share vintage things every week.

Today I would like to share this old radio. It is a Silvertone, and you could get one from the Sears catalog back in the 30s. We saw this radio while on vacation in Wisconsin several years ago, and since we live in a Sears Roebuck house, I decided that we needed it! Bless Mr. Old Glory for agreeing to buy it and make it fit in the car! To this day, I don't know how he did it, because when we go on vacation, the car is always packed to the gills!

While I'm at it, I decided I might as well show the rest of my radio collection, for those that haven't seen them. I got this pink one from Ebay, and it's my favorite.

This little transistor probably isn't that old, but it is red, so I grabbed it!

Another Ebay win. Unfortunately, I can not get this thing clean! Pretty color though!

And last we have this yellow Truimph clock radio. It's in excellent condition, another Ebay win, and my favorite. Oh wait, I said that about the pink one, didn't I? Actually, my favorite might be that green one that I want to win on Ebay....
If you've enjoyed seeing how I waste my money, I mean, seeing my vintage things, head on over to Suzanne's!

WE are going to spend our money one way or another. You might as well enjoy what you want. You have a wonderful collection of vintage radios. I have seen most of those as my late husband worked on them in his younger days.

I love your radios! My husband collects transistor radios and has almost a dozen of them. I love the big floor model one, it's a keeper.

I love your collection! If I didn't collect so many other vintage items, I would be collecting radios too!

Came over to visit your Red post and enjoyed browsing several of your other posts too. I never knew there are covered bridge festivals. How cool! We don't have covered bridges here. Tunnels we do, but not covered bridges. Thanks for visiting my RED post too!

I love every one of your radios! Brings back memories. My Dad collected radios and my Mom still has some packed away. Is that Hull pottery in the first photo? Nice collection!

Fun! Your pink one reminds me of the cream colored one we had in my childhood! It sat up on top of our refridgerator. ♥

Your radios brought back memories of my parents' plastic green radio we listened to in our kitchen. My gandfather had a radio similar to your beautiful wooden one.
Thanks for the memories!

What a fun collection. I like the Silvertone and the pink one. I don't see it as wasting money but recycling and saving things from the dump!
