Treasure Trove Tuesday - My Latest Vintage Finds

Tuesday, February 23, 2021

I've had pretty good luck during my last couple of thrifting sprees so I thought it was time to share!

If you are new here, I regularly shop at thrift stores and garage sales for items that I can resell in my Etsy shop, Little Boho Cottage. I share what I have found during my latest sourcing trips and include the price I paid and what I think I can sell it for in my shop!

Some of the items I find are for me to keep, some go straight into my shop, and some of them are supplies for crafting.

I know this is a little bit hard to see, but it's a vintage Alabaster donkey! I'm not sure what his purpose is, but he has two holes in the top about the size of a pencil.

I picked this up because of the adorable graphics on the box but after I purchased it, I saw the "Toys R Us" sticker on the front and was disappointed thinking it's not really vintage.

But upon further investigation and research, I think it is vintage after all from the very early 1960's! Here are my clues:
  1. The address information on the back of the box has a 5-digit zip code which we started using in 1963.
  2. But it also has New York state abbreviated with periods, N.Y. The periods disappeared right around that same time.
  3. Toys R Us originated in 1957 (check out this interesting article: Inside the Rise and Fall of Toys R Us).
  4. The graphics are in line with the 1960s.
  5. The foam eraser inside is all but disintegrating😂
Price $.99 cents, Value $12 - $14.
