Exciting Finds and Treasury Hopping

Happy Monday afternoon! I had a very interesting vintage/antique hunt yesterday with my best friend, Pam. We went back to the warehouse I was talking about last week and came home with...

A Guild 785 Grafonola gramophone! For $40!

The photo isn't ours, which I haven't had a chance to photograph yet, but it's almost identical.

The speaker needs to be rewired and I think we need a new radio tube (not 100% sure as I've never had to repair a gramophone before), but the power works and the turntable spins so we're almost in business.

We grabbed a few records too, in our excitement. Of course we can't play them yet as our player needs some work and of course has no needle.

I also got a cute little pink lamp (all metal), another antique book, and a ton of buttons, but I had yet to take photos.

I have to run to get to work, but here are a few of the wonderful things I fell in love with on Etsy this afternoon:

Green leather journal by Kreativlink

Bird mobile by fleurfatale

Felted bangle by creationsbyeve

Apple jacket by jacquelineknits which I will probably be buying by the end of the week.

Okay, off to work, tons of new listing are up and going up tomorrow at the Uncommon Things Etsy shop!
