1950s bead necklace measures about 18 inches long. The beads are made of a plastic material. The necklace was gift from a older widower friend. It once belonged to his wife. The happy coupled traveled the world together in their retirement. We believe the necklace was purchased during a trip to China. Although cousin Marice does love and appreciate the vintage red and white beaded necklace, it does not really suit her style and should be worn and enjoyed and not left to gather dust inside a jewelry box.

Art deco chairs we found in an old sandstone house my husband and father-in-law bought. They came from Germany during the early 1900s to 1920s. “Peachy” the heir to the property moved to New York a long time ago and only wanted any family pics left in the old vacant house - we got to keep everything else we found! My cousin-in-law did a shabby chic treatment with black milkpaint on the chairs and recovered the cushions. (via Vintage Dining Room Chairs 1920s Chairs by VintageSerendipity13)

1950s glass snack bowl. Perfect for both your next girls nite in gathering or formal dinner. This Mid Century Modern glass bowl belonged to my husband’s aunt Catherine. She was a tough old cookie with a heart of gold. She never married but had hundreds of children - she was a school teacher in a rural Appalachian community in southern Ohio. The glass is approximately 9 inches in diameter and is very heavy and appears to be in mint condition. The item will come in a medium “if it fits” box, I don’t think going by zipcode would offer a cheaper price due to the weight. Anything else from our shop purchased at the same time and also fits inside the same box - ships for free as well! (via 1950s Pressed Glass Bowl 1950s Snack Bowl Free by TaraDodrill)

Vintage telephone appears to be made of oak, it is extremely heavy. I just dug it out of pile of old stuff in a basement and was finally able to get it free enough to photograph. Once I dust it off and can get it up the creaky stairs, I will take more photos and weigh it. It feels like it weighs a little bit more than my Sulcata tortoise, and he weighed in at 50 pounds a few wees ago. The antique telephone appears to be from the late 1800s to early 1900s, have not been able to find any type of date on it … yet. It was made by the Chicago Telephone Supply Company. It truly is in excellent vintage condition, the bells still ring, all the original parts inside are still attached - including a very vintage string holding the ear piece. It is approximately 22 inches tall and 10 inches wide. My husband’s brother-in-law gave it to him several decades ago, not sure any history beyond that at the moment. I am still amazed at how intact it is, not a single part seems to be missing or unable to turn or move as originally intended. THE SHIPPING PRICE REFLECTS COST OF PACKING MATERIAL ONLY. Once buyer sends us their zip code, we can get an exact amount if it is not too heavy to go via the USPS, or buyer can schedule a FedEx or UPS pickup.
