Vintage Thingies Thursday!


It's VTT time! Please join me over at Coloradolady, where Suzanne hosts this great party, and you can visit lots of other blogs featuring great vintage things. Between VTT, Rednesday and Vintage Christmas Monday, I'm having a hard time stretching out the rest of my Christmas stuff between all of these great parties!

Here we have three little angels, all Made in Japan, that I picked up at one thrift shop. Each time I would go back, I would find one. I hoped it would keep going like that, but I only found these three!

This is an Ardco, Made In Japan snowman. I was really happy to find him, because I only have a couple snowmen, and none of them are old.

And finally, these packs of gum aren't vintage, but the brands are! There is an old-timey drugstore a few towns away from me, and I always try to remember to grab a couple packs of this gum. Do you remember these? Richard the Bewildered Brit recently did a post on old brands of gum, and I've wanted to chew some ever since! Blackjack was always my favorite! Unfortunately they were out of Teaberry and Beamans. I've since been told that I can get these old brands at Cracker Barrel too! Now please head over to Suzanne's!
Merry Christmas!!

Oh Carol the pink and white is so awesome together. Love it!

I don't remember the gum you pictured but I do remember Beamans. I love that Cracker Barrel does the vintage thingie. Love looking around in there.

I have the same middle angel! It belonged to my mother who got it in 1955 as a Xmas present.

I love those gums! The taste is so different. Everytime I find some I have to buy some!

Love your angels and little snowman. They're so sweet..and it's amazing that so many of the older brands of gum and candy are coming back. I think it's wonderful.. Happy VTT, have a great weekend.

Love the snowman! Seems like I've seen him before or one like him. I don't remember the gum. I'll have to check to see if they do have it at the CB the next time I'm there.

Merry Christmas!

I really love those sweet little angels. They remind me of some my Grandma had. And the gum...I remember buying gum and penny candy at our little corner grocery store when I was growing up. Great memories.

I loved the clove and blackjack gum. I also have a pink radio similar to yours and an angel like the one in the center. I got it when I was a child and at one time the wings broke off. I asked my mom to glue them back on, and she did, but she glued them on upside down. I was so upset. I think I was about 8 at the time. They're still that way, but now I have a story that goes along with the angel so I'm glad she made the mistake.
Blessings,
Marcia

Love the angels, they looks so sweet with the pink behind them. I remember clove gum ,yum!

Keetha Broyles said...

Ah, I remember Black Jack and Clove. I believe there was also Beech Nut. But Chowards is a NEW one to me.

PlantSomeRoots@Lakewood said...

Ummm...don't remember the gum...either because I don't do gum or my memory is going. Probably both! Your angels are adorable in front of your pink radio. Happy Holidays!
Living it up at Lakewood,

Great post. I LOVED Clove gum as a kid - oh that brings back such sweet memories.

Cheers to you,

Jane said...

Hi Carol...me again. If you ever want me to get you some cabinet cards just let me know. I have an antique mall near my home and one gentlemen has a booth with thousands of cards...prices range from 50 cents for a more ordinary card to a few dollars for cards that are a little nicer. The ones I used for my post today were 50 cents apiece....great for altering.

Olde Dame Penniwig said...

Yes, Cracker Barrel has them!

I hope someone starts making FRUIT STRIPE GUM again, too! Oh, remember Fruit Stripe? So pretty!!!

Richard @ The Bewildered Brit said...

Thank you so much for the mention and the link!

Black Jack Gum is one of the greatest things ever invented!

I'm so sorry you couldn't get Teaberry gum! I hope you at least did the Teaberry Shuffle!

Cracker Barrel is a great place to get vintage candy from. Also, they sometimes sell them in limited edition retro packaging too!

Thanks again! And that snowman is just adorable!

Richard @ The Bewildered Brit said...

Oh, Olde Dame Penniwig they still make Fruit Stripe! I covered it a couple of months ago on The Bewildered Brit.

I have definitely seen it in Cracker Barrel!

Carrie said...

Your vintage angels are so sweet, and the vintage snowman is strikingly beautiful. Great finds!
Happy holidays,
Carrie

What a great vintage pink radio! Does it work?

Sue said...

I absolutely love that pink radio and the little angels around it. How fun to have found them on each trip. I haven't been out much lately. I'm hoping this old head of mine will clear up and I can start having some fun again. Dizzy doesn't get it! I remember the gum- I always thought it was "old lady gum" because my grandmother liked it~ haha
hugs, Sue

Coralie Cederna Johnson said...

My mom had a clock radio similar to your pink one but it was turquoise! Those were the days...love all your vintage treasures! Thanks for sharing and have a super day! Hugs, Coralie

carla said...

Love that gum! My cousin works at Cracker Barrel and she said they mostly stock it in the summer. So check back in a few months if they're out of it now.

Remember the wax lips that stores sold around Halloween? When I chew Teaberry it reminds me of that flavor.
