Can I get your autograph?


I wrote a lame title for this post and I just couldn’t bring myself to use it but it’s dorky enough that it seemed a shame not to share.  Ready?Vintage Junk Rocks!  Random junk photo taken on the same day as the other photos in this post... Ok, I’ve probably written worse but if you knew how much over-thinking I put into things, you’d understand why I consider that kind of cringe-worthy and once/if you read this post (unless that last sentence was enough to make you turn off your computer or put down your phone or abandon your tablet and leave the area) you’ll understand how lacking-in-subtlety (yet easy) that title would have been.  For me.Did I mention the over-thinking? Good.So.Ditto on this photo. There’s been a series of totally random yet very delightful emails showing up around The Land of Into Vintage lately and here’s one example:Hello,I was wondering if you would be interested in letting us use the attached photo on an album cover for a small up and coming band called Surviving Allison. It will be used in good taste, and we would give you full credit for the photo on the album.What?!You may recall a post from back in the olden days when I took myself out for some birthday junking and snapped these photos while in an antique mall in Astoria, OR (Hi there, Phog Bounders Antique Mall). Then that random-yet-delightful email arrived and before I responded, mad googling commenced in order to check out the band, Surviving Allison.  I just wanted to make sure they don't sacrifice unicorns or anything like that.They don't.And so my response to the email was a big, ol’ YES.Days later, this appeared in my inbox.The designer told me each object with a sales tag represents a member of the band.No words except maybe “Vintage junk rocks!”Click here to go to  Surviving Allison's website. Or follow them on Instagram here.------------------------------------P.S. a HUMONGOUS thank you to everyone who took the time to wish my dear Auntie a happy birthday on my previous post. You are the best. xo  [...]

Mile marker 90.


Please indulge me while I type up this tribute to a favorite vintage person who also happens to be very modern…She is someone who defines optimism as “…an 80+ year old woman who renews her passport.” (And uses it!)She’s on Facebook. She’s an email pro and has been for years. She knows what in the world airbnb* is and finds it pretty interesting. She takes selfies!Selfie taken while dining on roasted duck & fig crepes from "Planet of the Crepes" food cartShe has a resume that contains the following titles: Award-winning Author, Gourmet Chef, Restaurant Review Writer, Business Owner, and Hotel Social Director.  (There are more. This is just the highlight reel. )Former Social Director at the beautiful Broadmoor HotelShe found her great love at age 80 and married him.She is a tireless cheerleader for reconnecting far-flung family members.She induces anxiety by asking this visiting short order cook to prepare dinner for her. (See previous reference to “Gourmet Chef” and “Restaurant Review Writer.”  Sheer terror, I tell you.)Celebrating something or another She reduces anxiety by introducing visiting short order cooks to Prosecco, Limoncello, and Bellinis.She shares a rare genetic disorder with yours truly that involves the acquisition of pretty vintage dishes. So many dishes. We can’t be stopped but probably should be.She appreciates beauty all around her, especially in her home and her garden. She dresses so stylishly that someone needs to put her on the pages of Vogue.She reads my blog, refers to me as a writer and encourages and supports all of my endeavors.All of this (and much, much more) describes my Auntie Phyllis, who turns 90 today.I would love and appreciate it so much if you would please wish her a “Happy Birthday” in the comments below.  Thank you.  ♥Photo borrowed from her Facebook page Ninety!  Love you, Auntie!  xo-------------------*[...]

From the eight of us


For someone who rides the junkin’ rails on a nearly daily basis, I completely managed to miss the train to Pyrexville.  I realize many of you Pyrex People have been bringing home mixing bowls and refrigerator sets for eons but for those of us just waking up to the Pyrex experience (HelloMyNameIsAmy), I feel as though in the last year or so, there has been a sudden EXPLOSION of Pyrex collecting, hoarding, sharing and selling.Or does everyone feel like that when they're the last one to catch on?Gina has vintage Pyrex junk in her trunk.Melissa sells her Pyrex finds on eBay.Then there are the Two (Pyrex Crazy) Thrifting Sisters. A google image search of them is Pyrex-crazy indeed!Click the photo to go to Pyrex Collective IAnd there’s not just one or even two Pyrex Collectives – there are three of them! With links to even more Pyrex-loving types pyrexing their hearts out.Click the photo to go to Pyrex Collective IIand you guessed it, click the photo to go to Pyrex Collective IIIAnd me?I’ve taken one lonely photo of other people’s Pyrex, because I liked the display, not because I have a clue about anything Pyrex. On Instagram, this is my #1 hearted photo -- it outhearted any Vintage Christmas photo I’ve posted so far -- who knew?! I mean, you probably knew but I DID NOT KNOW. About the w i d e s p r e a d love of Pyrex.In an effort to signal my late entry into the Great Pyrex Awareness of the 21stCentury, I’ve started a Pyrex (and more) collection of my own, safely contained on a Pinterest board where it won’t take up space at home, be washed in a dishwasher or get chipped or broken.Pyrex poster is from etsy shop Pocono Modern Live and learn.  SO much to learn.  Now hoping to find a Pyrex for Beginners support group.[...]
