Vintage Buys

Since I haven't written anything in some time. I thought I would start out with a shout out to :
Antique Marketplace of Lemoyne, LLC.
415 Bosler Avenue
Lemoyne, Pa 17043
(717) 761-2865

I had spent some time there these past few weekends in search of a new compact and a 40's ladies watch. But my urges to buy almost everything took over and I kind of went crazy.

I was actually taken there by someone very dear to my heart a couple of years back. They knew my love for all things vintage and thought it would be a great place to show me since I was running out of opions in Harrisburg, Pa. The Antique Marketplace is a really good place to go to shop for anything and everything vintage at a stealof a price. They carry clothes, furniture, cookware, etc. just everything.

I ended up buying a 40's salmon pink slip $18, and the October 21, 1941 issue of Look magazine $5.( sorry no pictures) I then ended up buying a set of five 30's/40's teal jewelry bags for $5, three 30's/40's white lingerie bags for $5, and a large 40's red compact for $12. ( the only thing wrong with the compact was the mirror was bad and has to be replaced. But it was never used.)

30's-40's jewelry bags

So if you're ever in the area...please go there and check them out!


P.s. Sorry my pictures start to get cut off on the right side. But the other white lingerie bag is the smallest of the 3.

So today it felt like I was waking up at sunrise even thought it was only 9am. I usually wake up earlier but it was a saturday. So, who does that? Well, I do! Atleast for today, since it was a saturday and I wanted to go to Saturday's Market.

Saturday's Market is a giant market place in Middletown, Pa where a ton of vendors carry antique, vintage, new items, and food. There are 3-4 sections inside plus multiple tents outside. I was in heaven when my boyfriend and I finally arrived there. It has been years since the last time I was there and I hadn't realized how many more vintage things they had started carrying. There was so much to look at, that it was closing before we even had time to look at all the things that were outside in the tents.

While we were there, I did have a chance to pick up 2 magazine ads from the 40's. A song hits magazine from 1941 that showcased one of my favorite movies, Moon Over Miami starring Betty Grable. And 2 pairs of vintage clip-on earrings.

$5 -Now I just need to find picture frames to fit!
41 cents- A peek inside the magazine!

*Check back next weekend for pictures from The Classic Car and Fashion Shown revival in New Jersey and if you're going I hope to see you there!
