Garage sale finds

So the cupcake how to is coming along but for now I will entertain you with some recent garage sale finds :) So I got this cool lighted mirror! It’s old but the lady didn’t know how old. I like it :) I’ve always wanted an old fashion lighted mirror.

a million 059  a million 063

I tried looking up this company and couldn’t find anything except electrical switches lol.

The best part of the whole thing is that it works!

a million 065

Check out the engraved look on the side.

a million 067 Here is the back, the part that holds it up is kind of warped and bent from leaning for so long I guess.

a million 070 I also got this neat old fan for Taylor because he likes retro stuff lol.

a million 071 a million 072   

a million 073

Pinky inspecting the fan LOL.

a million 074

a million 075

I got some other really neat stuff that I will share next time :) 2 bucks for the mirror and 2 bucks for the fan I think it was a good deal lol. The fan works too! But the button to turn it on and off is broken you have to unplug it to turn it off LOL. Oh well. All the best everyone!

That's a pretty cool mirror! I have never seen such a fancy one like that that actually had lights. When I was a little girl I remember my parents had a fan like that. Very retro! Can't wait to see what else you found.

Lisa said...

These are such good finds! How super cool!!
Hugs, Lisa

That mirror is sooo cool! I've never seen one like that...its so glamour girl-ish!

the vintage vignette said...

The mirror is so Vintage Hollywood! Can't you just se Marilyn Monroe grooming herself in it!

Coralie Cederna Johnson said...

What a fun find!

rosechicfriends said...

What a GREAT mirror! Don't know if I have ever seen one like that! Now, your fan reminds me of one my folks had years ago...oh, that makes me feel old! lol!

But best of all, Pinky is so curious, just like my kitties, anything new and they MUST inspect it!

Sares said...

Great finds Alli! That mirror is beautiful, very art deco, I love that era. The fan is cool too. I've always liked those old metal fans. You can add them in on a lot of decorating styles too. I'm sure Taylor isn't too concerned about that though!

Karen at Nittany Inspirations said...

Great finds. With this heat wave everybody is having, it will come in handy.

bj said...

Hi..oh, gosh...I love both these things! Especially the old fan. love those.
About the larger photos...I think I have it solved now. When I first posted the enlarged photo of those 3 little creamers lined up..the right one was cut off completely. Now, if you go over and look, they are all three there!! woo hoo

Rosemary said...
