Etsy Vintage Team Store Highlight: SchwaVintageDestash

This week’s Etsy Vintage Team Store Highlight is SchwaVintageDestash that’s run by Carolynn ni Ochlainn.

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.

1

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.

2

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.

You can see this terrific necklace in their shop here.

Etsy Vintage Team Store Highlight: TheLionsDenStudio

This week’s Etsy Vintage Team Store Highlight is TheLionsDenStudio that’s run by Heather Hagen.

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.

1

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.

You can see this terrific pan in Heather’s shop here.

Another great item in TheLionsDenStudio is this great Louis Vuitton Train Case.

This week’s Etsy Vintage Team Store Highlight is HattieHazelVintage that’s run by Deb.

All of this started in 2009 with Vintage Gypsies on Etsy and grew from there. While the name honors her Grandmother and Great Aunt of whom she has such fond memories, this one’s for her Mom.  She would have loved this.

Finding old stuff is her passion and is lucky to have a little business that she can do with some of her best friends…they all have vintage businesses and get together to go picking, selling, researching, and do a lot of laughing.

One of the great finds that you can see in the HattieHazelVintage shop is this great state scarf.

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.

Etsy Vintage Team Store Highlight: CrookedJoesAntiques

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.

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.

seperator

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.
