My Vintage Addiction

I can't really pin point when my love affair for things vintage took a dangerous tumble down the gutter of addiction, but it did a while back. I am a recovering vintage addict now and my 12 step program includes earning no income as a stay-at-home mom, the economy, and no storage space in my petite home - not necessarily in that order.

My particular poison is vintage toys. I love that they were once loved. I love the evidence of adoration tattooed on them like a badge of honour. The smell - ah well I could do without the smell, but I generally don't buy anything that can't be disinfected and/or washed in the washing machine. Etsy is my main source for fab finds - outside of estate sales, yard sales and a few Salvation Army locations. Here is a peak at a few of my favourite finds.

I have collected a lot of cute pieces over the years, sadly some of which has been kept in boxes as I just don't have the space for it all. I am in the process of setting up an Etsy shop to share some of my finds. I will post when it is open for business.

Thank you for stopping by.


  1. The deer is so cute. I am such a vintage addict.

  2. I love your yard sale finds that you post regularly - we are kindred spirits in that respect for certain!
