New Auction Window: Squirrel's Gone Nuts

Oh man, someone is going to have to clean up this mess; our little squirrel-y nutcracker has gone bonkers, spilling walnuts all over the kitchen! That's him peaking out of the large jadite mixing bowl.

As if that weren't enough racket, imagine the clamor caused by the drop of a hearty Wagner ware roasting pan or two.

In the back corner, you'll find three yellow ware bowls, a Dumbo elephant pitcher and an adorable felted height chart.

Also available for auction are a couple green depression glass pieces (including a juicer), a unique hand shaped bottle, and several jadite pieces.

Now if only someone would scoop up these stray walnuts! (Hint: there's a charming rustic dust pan for that.)

Bidding ends Tuesday, September 7 at 8pm. Bids may be place in store or by phone (212-871-0777) on the auction clipboard near the register.

Happy bidding!

New Auction Window: Office Space

Need a little provocation to prep that proposal? Try an office upgrade! Start with a couple of wooden file cabinets and a handsome 1960s Lightolier floor lamp. Then, keep the function meets form vibe going with the Howard Miller clock, black and white rotary phone, or the Grundig Heinzelmann (reproduction) radio. Add a few decade-spanning accessories (may we suggest the coveted Underwood typewriter, a streamlined Ace Line stapler, or the Edison Records canister?), and you're good to go.
With your chic, new tools in place, procrastination won't have anywhere left to hide.
Bidding ends 8:00pm Tuesday, August 24. Bids may be place in store or by phone (212-871-0777) on the auction clipboard near the register.

Happy Bidding!

Martha Stewart Meets Thrift, and It's a "Good Thing"

You know the old adage about never knowing what you're going to get? Not only does it apply to shopping at Vintage Thrift, but also, apparently, to answering the telephone. Case and point: on Friday we received a call from The Martha Stewart Show (the Martha!) inviting our customers and staff to a taping of an upcoming show on shopping thriftily--whether it be consignment, vintage, or charity shop wares.

To apply for tickets for this special show, click here. We're crossing our fingers that we see you there!

Royal Jelly Updates

At the start of the summer, we invited you to staff member Kerry Jones’ Royal Jelly fashion show debut. Just as summer is starting to wind down, we (finally) bring you a few samples from the show.

(Hey--don't blame us! Quality takes time.)

Super sleuths may have spied a Royal Jelly mention in Time Out New York earlier in the season, and more recently in last week’s Metro.

All this buzz might have something to do with the fact that Royal Jelly's new line of one-of-a-kind clutches are being offered at Brooklyn gift boutique, Honey & Hazel.

The rest of the RJ collection can be seen here.

Things We're Psyched On

Now that we've got our great new logo and business cards, we ordered a new awning to match.

We love the pop of brilliant red on an otherwise gray street.
What do you think? Yay or nay?
