This week’s Etsy Vintage Team Store Highlight is CrookedJoesAntiques that’s run by Ted and Vanessa Osborn.
Vanessa says that 19 years ago her husband asked her when she was going to stop dragging old stuff home (he asked her this as he was dragging old stuff home). Her reply was that she would probably always be dragging old stuff home. Subsequently, the two opened an antique store.
Books and glassware were Vanessa’s early passions, but of course that expanded. The two deal in everything; books, glassware, primitives, automotive, jewelry, sports collectibles and they love everything metal.
Crooked Joe’s is a combination of both of their tastes so you will find feminine and manly and everything in between.
One item is this cool cigarette dispenser.
A company named Kindel and Graham from Mission Street in San Francisco produced these wood cigarette dispensers in the 1920’s. You can see this in their shop here. Another item you can find in the CrookedJoesAntiques shop is this cool egg separator.
The lime green separator dates to the 1960’s, and I love the little lip on the end so you can safely set it on the edge of a bowl. You can see this in their shop here.
As a matter of fact, you can check out everything in the CrookedJoesAntiques shop here. Head on over and check them out!
