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.

This week’s Etsy Vintage Team Store Highlight is SecondHandNews that’s run by Michelle.
Michelle absolutely loves Shabby Chic and Country Cottage decor; particularly that which includes Robin’s Egg Blue, Pink or Barnwood Red – some of her favorite colors. Her work consists of primarily reworked pieces that she’s painted, distressed and transformed in some way.
Michelle also has an obsession with Vintage things whether it be home decor items or books. She’s always up for a trip to the Flea Market or an Estate Sale and loves to share her beautiful finds with all of you.
One of these great finds is this cool mustard tin.
This tin is for Colman’s Mustard, and it dates to the 1970’s. It still contains mustard, although I wouldn’t recommend using it. You can see this great tin in their shop here.
Another great item in the SecondHandNews shop is this great wire memo board.
This great shabby cottage chic chicken wire memo board is made from a distressed picture frame and chicken wire, and I love the polymer clay rose applique attached to the top.
You can see this great item in the SecondHandNews shop here.

This week’s Etsy Vintage Team Store Highlight is LaKimonoya that’s run by Isabelle.
The first time Isabelle came to Japan, she fell in love with the local flea markets, kimonos, haoris, kakemonos. She loves Japanese vintage items, their uniqueness in color, touch and designs. Isabelle has lived in Japan for few years now and feels very lucky that enjoying those became a part of their daily life!
One of the items in the LaKimonoya shop is this terrific Japanese long Kimono.
I love the wine red leaf pattern that is on it, and you can see this terrific item in their shop here. Another great item in the LaKimonoya shop is this great Lacquered Wood Lunch Box.
This great 1970’s lacquered wood lunch box was originally aimed for festive food presentation (something like New Year’s celebrations or even for a wedding). It could also be great storing little treasures, and you can see it in their shop here.
As a matter of fact, you can check out everything in the LaKimonoya shop here. Head on over and check them out!
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.
As a matter of fact, you can check out everything in the KitschyVintage shop here. Head on over and check them out!
This week’s Etsy Vintage Team Store Highlight is mascarajones that’s run by Mascara Jones. Mascara Jones is obsessed with the 1970’s and is Insane Collector and Incessant Shopper.
There are a wide variety of items in the mascarajones shop, like this terrific Modernist Lucite Jewelry Vanity Box.
I love the shape of this great vanity box, and it can be seen in their shop here. Another great item in the mascarajones shop is this funky ring.
I love the combination of the sterling silver and the pearls, and the ring can be seen in their shop here. As a matter of fact, you can check out everything in the mascarajones shop here.

This week’s Etsy Vintage Team Store Highlight features the Reconstitutions shop that is run by Shelley. Shelley lives in the gorgeous state of Kentucky, and runs Reconstitutions with her husband. Together they choose the wonderful, beautiful and sometimes bizarre items you may find in their shop.
Her love for all things vintage can be attributed to my grandmother, Marleah. She instilled in Shelley a love and respect of unique antiques and the memories they hold. When Shelley was little, her grandmother would sit Shelley in front of her china cabinet or jewelry box and tell Shelley wonderful stories about the sparkling things inside. Those memories are some of her greatest treasures.
One of the great treasures in her shop is this nutcracker from the 1970’s.
This nutcracker was made by the DIAMOND company, and it’s billed as the “nutquacker”. You can see this great item in their shop here. Another great treasure that they have in their shop is this piece of Samsonite Luggage.
It dates to the 1960’s, and what’s cool about it is that it’s bubblegum pink. You can see this great item in their shop here.
