Etsy Vintage Team Store Highlight: UpbeatVintage

This week’s Etsy Vintage Team Store Highlight is UpbeatVintage that’s run by Dan Jacobs.

Dan is passionate about finding (and restoring) unusual & functional pieces from the past.  He especially loves vintage advertising and anything made out of wood & metal, preferably both together: knives, straight razors, meat cleavers, military pins, tools, pulleys, silver coins, brass figurines, lighters…the list goes on and on.

One such advertising piece that’s in the UpbeatVintage shop is this great tip tray.

The tip tray is advertising Miller Beer, and it dates to the 1950’s.  The great thing about the tray is that it has one of the most recognizable advertisements on it–the Miller High Life Girl in the Moon.

You can see this tip tray here.  Another great item in the UpbeatVintage shop is this terrific pocket knife.

The Barlow Knife dates to the 1960’s, and it was made by STAG (which is based in Ireland).  You can see the pocket knife in the UpbeatVintage shop here.

As a matter of fact, you can check out everything in the UpbeatVintage shop here.  Head on over and check them out!
