Vintage Thingie Thursday

It's Thursday and time for Vintage Thingie Thursday again, I'd like to thank Suzanne for hosting this for us.. Visit Suzanne, Coloradolady to see more Vintage Thingies Thursday
Today, I am still feeling under the weather and really only have a couple items to show. I just didn't feel like setting up and taking picture, I had these taken last week for something else and thought well why not use them today for VTT. I believe they could be considered vintage. The first item is a lovely little lady figurine my son brought back to me when he was Stationed in Germany in 1983, that would make this at least 26 yrs old...oh my, It just hit me how long it's been since he was in the Army, that means I'm getting old, and he's not far behind me...lol...
Anyhow, I had asked him to get me a cuckoo clock, but you know 19 yr old boys don't have a clue sometimes. He found this in Italy while on leave and I just fell in love with it. She is so delicate, all white with gold trim and pink dotted lace. Her bussle was full of sweet smelling pellets, of course the smell is gone now. She is 6" tall.
In her hands she is holding a gold tipped rose.
The next item is one that I bought when I first got married in 1961, my first full time job was for Wool Worth, how many of you remember them, The original 5 'N' Dime....I had worked for them all during High School on Sat. and in the evening, so when I got married it was easy to just slip into full time,..lol..I think I spend most of my first few paychecks buying stuff from the store. This little Orange juicer was one of my favorites, I still have it after 48 yrs,

I hope you enjoyed looking at these little treasures that are so special to me. And hopefully next week I will do a better job...lol...
Good night.

  7. I've never seen a juicer like that! How clever for someone to create such an item - unique appearance! I remember the 5 & Dime stores, too. Woolworth Stores is the one I remember the best, although I know there were others I shopped at. When we were kids and got our allowance, we'd hike over there to see what our pennies could buy. It was a big decision to make a purchase, and I remember having to really think if I wanted that eraser, or maybe I should save for a glass horse figurine! Where does the time go....?

  8. Oh I just love Vintage Thursdays! What wonderful memories that perfumed lady brought back ... we had one just like it when i was little. I remember being amazed by the magic of her scent :)

    And i had some cute juicers similar to that one too.

    Woolworths was such a grand store ... a veritable emporium! What an adventure to go there.

    No talk about doing better next week .... this was a lovely trip down memory lane :)

    Thanks

  14. Ahh, WoolsWorth! I loved that store and miss it still today. Ours had a soda fountain. Your little lady is so charming. Much better than a cuckoo clock, in my opinion. That juicer brought a smile to my face. Feel better soon!

  17. I wonder, are the pellets the lady has in her bustle scented? They almost look like almonds used in wedding favors.

    I adore your juicer! What a fun little treasure!

  20. I got married in 1965 and I absolutely remember Woolworths. It was were you got everything for not very much money. The juicer is really cute. You must have taken good care of it.
    Hope you feel better soon.
