the Tuesday Song of the Week

Now that it's officially summer, let's hear from History's All-Time Greatest Rock Band:


'Summer and Lightning' - ELO
aka
Electric Light Orchestra

Buy vintage costume jewelry for yourself

You should absolutely, positively, DEFINITELY get at least one of these charming baubles for yourself.  

Each and every one comes with a happy, positive vibe to make YOU happy.  

Some of this stuff you might have seen before.  However, since my jewelry store only reopened recently, you haven't -- until now -- had a crack at it all.


delightful Dorothy Bauer swan brooch!
Looks waaayyyyyyy better in person! 

Pink pearls aren't just erasers.
A fantastically fantastic Mad Men era relic.  Never worn!  Box never even opened! 

Gret Barkin is in the house!
With this VERY rare kitty cat brooch.  Nearly all of her work that you find today is abstract/non-representational.  


What do kitty cats like?
FISH!
Sarah Coventry fish, especially.

Sarah made what looks like another sea critter for us:

How gloriously glam is this???
in beYOOtiful smoky blue

It's monkey time!

Oh, the time I put into getting even a half-way decent photo of this beauty.
There are GOLD rhinestones here, plus aurora borealis, plus white, plus amber.  
It's unbelieveably gorgeous.  I just fervently wish I could get a good picture of it.

Here's another with a less than great photo.
It's a fur tree!

with teeny little faux pearl berries

I don't Coro what you say,
I won't live in a world without awesome goldtone vintage Maltese cross-shaped jewelry.

VERY cool sterling silver brooch

Note that a BUNCH more jewelry is on its way.

your DAILY DOUBLE or GET GOTTA GET THIS!!!

I'm so sorry I missed yesterday.  I was 3/4 done and realized one of the images needed edited.

So now that's done, and we can move on.  Today will be a double double.

First up...

A handsome WWII Navy man (aka World War II Navy man) checking something technical with his new watch.  
He's doing that on boxes, plates, ceramic tiles, t-shirts, ornaments, decals, buttons, and MORE.  Go to  www.zazzle.com/the_olden_eye?rf=238225004668148127 and in the 'search this store' box, enter 'naval officer'

Now here's someone else who's at work.
That's the North Window, protecting that little bird on its way south.  He appears on  shirts, cards, mugs, etc. etc. etc.  (I have to redo this in Zazzle, so if you're really and truly are interested in The North Wind, wait a few days until he reappears.)  Then you can Go to  www.zazzle.com/the_olden_eye?rf=238225004668148127 and in the 'search this store' box, enter 'north'

Oh, the humanities!
The above mob scene appears on wrapping paper, decals, phone/computer accessories, notebooks, plaques, jigsaw puzzles (makes a VERY cool jigsaw puzzle), boxes, plates, coasters, tshirts, tote bags, and LOTS LOTS LOTS more.   Go to  www.zazzle.com/the_olden_eye?rf=238225004668148127 and in the 'search this store' box, enter 'crowd'

Smell the smokes before you smoke 'em.

your Daily Double or GET GET GET THIS!! AND THIS!!!

Yet again I missed a day, i.e. yesterday, Wednesday the 24th.  

I was very busy.

Anyway, here we go...


Mother Goose!
 MG is available on t-shirts, tote bags, cellphone/computer decals and skins, mouse pads, mugs, and greeting cards.  Go to www.zazzle.com/the_olden_eye?rf=238225004668148127 and in the 'Search this store' box, enter 'giant goose'  Really.  giant goose.

Next, we have our friend, Mr. Natty
The nattily-dressed Mr. Natty, found in a 1920s Broadway playbill, can also be found on clocks, t-shirts, decals, jigsaw puzzles, coasters, boxes, plates, notebooks, phone accessories and a BUNCH more.  Go to www.zazzle.com/the_olden_eye?rf=238225004668148127 and in the 'Search this store' box, enter 'natty'

New (old) stuffs!

Now that some of my time is sorta kinda being freed up, I'm back hot and heavy selling the old and the awesome for which I've become so well-known to... well, four or five relatives, a neighbor or two, and a bunch of peeps at the local flea markets and auctions.

Firstly, we have this bo cute 1950s spoon rest, which...
 you can turn into a wall-mounted spoon rest, on acccounta there's two holes in the back for hanging purposes.

Now THIS IS COOL.
 Mid-Century Modern bull bank!

We're bullish on banks!!

Not only is the above completely and fully awesome, he has his original cork stopper.

Next up, the opulence...

 Something over the top-ish for your Hollywood Regency decor.  

Here.  Kitty.

 Kitty resides on a 1957 example of restaurant china, marking the opening of Cheshire Cheese, which claimed to be 'a London chop house.' and was located in the Sheraton Philadelphia.  Considering how appalling British food is (even in London) it's never a good idea to claim your restaurant offers British-inspired grub.  

Here's something verrrrry pretty.

 1950s Italian art glass, original label and MINT condition.

Another kitty!!

 The above is one of the rarer Royal Copley kitty cats.

Next, old time Libbey glass in an even older time pattern, Old Plantations.
For those of you how know this pattern (or don't knot this pattern); we have the following in the set: Garden Party, The Ball, Show Boat, Down on the Levee, and two MInt Julep Time.




DRAGONWARE !!!!!!!!!!!!!

circa 1910 wine pitcher and cups

THREE lots of NS Ivory China -- Mountain Yellow pattern.  (note that I have lots more than what you see here; it's just not on Etsy yet-sy.)



back to the opulent




Saving the best for last...

Mid-Century Modern /cat collectible letter holder!

Buy one, buy all*, in my Etsy store: www.etsy.com/shop/PeaceableAntiques

*It would make me super-happy if you bought all.  SUPER HAPPY.
