This week’s Etsy Vintage Team Store Highlight is the ancienesthetique shop. They sell French country home vintage, and even French decor antiques.
The great people that run ancienesthetique found themselves in France after arriving there via South America with no money and not much more of a plan. They were suddenly surrounded by gorgeous old treasures which they had to sell on and share!
It all started with gorgeous little antique cups, buttons, laces, scarves, all smaller items. It has definitely grown from there.
They go to vide greniers, (empty attic) or brocantes, antique fairs and marche aux puces (flea markets) that are here there and everywhere. Some of the terrific items that the ancienesthetique shop has can be found on Etsy, and one such item is this great pair of porcelain cups.
The lot of 2 Limoges tea, coffee or espresso cups date to the 1940’s. Thye would make a superb and unique mothers day gift! You can find them in their shop here.
Another great item in the ancienesthetique shop is therrific alarm clock,
What a sweet little Jaz alarm clock! This wind up Vintage alarm clock dates to the 1940’s and would be an excellent gift for him or a housewarming gift. You can find it in the ancienesthetique shop here.

Carolynn started this shop to have some fun selling her grandmothers’ wacky choices in jewelry. It’s grown up a bit since then, but she’s still selling their stuff (both sides of the family had a lot of stuff).
One of the items in Carolynn’s shop is this terrific cocktail ring.
The pear-cut amethyst is natural, a lovely shade purple – not too light or dark to sparkle! The pave diamonds, set in white gold, provide a shiny, glittery field for contrast. The ring itself is 14kt yellow gold. You can see this terrific ring in Carolynn’s shop here.
Another terrific item in the SchwaVintageDestash shop is this rhinestone necklace.
It dates to the 1950’s and sports a strand of round rhinestones featuring a central section with a second, larger row of round rhinestones that converge on a square diamond turned 90 degrees for a diamond-shaped center. From there, two strands of four rhinestones each dangle.

The Lion’s Den Studio is a one-woman operation made up of funky vintage items that Heather collected and also her hand made arts and crafts. She loves searching through flea markets and garage sales for slightly chipped and rusted vintage treasures, ready to be restored or re-purposed. She tends to collect pieces that she wants for her own home and loves to test them out before writing descriptions.
One of these great items is this enameled Dutch oven pan.
This great lidded Dutch oven pan with kobenstyle handles on both sides and on the top of the lid was made by Dansk. The lid can be used as a trivet, making this a great piece for serving. This older Dansk piece was made in the original factory in Denmark, between 1954 and 1966, and is marked with the duck logo.

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.

This week’s Etsy Vintage Team Store Highlight is KitschyVintage that’s run by Anne.
Anne began collecting as soon as she could walk. It started with pretty rocks (what kid doesn’t like those?) and toads & salamanders, but quickly graduated to penny machine prizes (remember rat-finks?), trolls and comic books.
She has always loved old things, old stories, family history (her husband calls it ‘ancestor worship’) and the link that vintage and antique things have to the past.
Anne loves to go to flea markets, estate sales, thrift shops and the occasional curb-side. She’s not above dumpster-diving and should have a bumper sticker that reads ‘I Brake for Other People’s Trash’! Often the cast-off and forgotten hides a nugget of wonderful-ness that just needs to be found.
One of those great nuggets is this great plastic cheese server with Mouse handle on the top.
The cheese server dates to the 1960’s, and it can be found in the KitschyVintage shop here. Another great item in Anne’s shop is this great Vintage Androck Whipper with a glass jar.
The Whipper dates from the 1930’s to the 1940’s and would be great for making cream, mayonnaise or even beating eggs. You can see it in the shop here.
