Mad Maine Vintage Shop

This little blog will chronicle my ventures into selling vintage items in a local antique market.
My booth is called Mad Maine Vintage Shop - it features items inspired by a certain popular TV show,
and I am located in lovely Maine. Viva Vintage!

Travel Haul (and Money Already Made Back)

Here is part of my travel haul from my trip to Virginia.  Both of these lovely kitchen items will go in my vintage booth (I so prefer to call it vintage rather than antique booth these days since I hardly ever sell anything antique).  I was very tempted to keep this fondue pot (look at those fantastic legs!), but I do not need another one, so in the booth it will go.  The lovely egg cups were made in West Germany.  I want to keep those too, but I ain't gonna!

Below is a video where I describe my entire haul - and I will show you the one purchase that I already sold on ebay that paid for the rest of the haul.  I love it when one thing sells and makes everything else pure profit, don't you?

Several of you commented on my last post/video saying that you also thrift on vacation (or wish you could!).  I am glad I am not alone...  Also, a big shout-out to SuzieQ for telling me the history about Asylum Street in CT - I loved that back story, thank you!!!
So, who is looking forward to summer and summer thrifts and flea markets as much as I am?
(Linking up with the one and only Apron Thift Girl)


  1. I watched your whole video - you found some great things!! I need to go on a trip - soon!!!

  2. Love everything! We're filling our schedule up now with flea markets, vintage fairs and auctions. So excited for a treasure filled summer!

  3. Eye candy. I do the same thing.

    Hope you enjoyed your vacation.

  4. Hah, can take the teacher out of the classroom but I am always about the lesson. Plus, I just totally adore how the computer can answer ANY question. Last year, working with 7th and 8th graders, I just spent a lot of time teaching them how to find information on the web. The hardest part is for them to become astute and recognize what are viable facts...see, there I go again!
    My ultimate goal is to get busy this summer and sell a ton of my stuff since the tipping point has been reached and my house is at maximum capacity. Maybe we can connect and you can teach me how to list on-line. I know I am making it more complicated in my mind then I need to. I think I need to do some self talk...just like I do with the kindergarten kids this year; you can do it!

    1. The tool looks to me something like what the Eskimos use to skin animals.That or an old pastry knife!

  5. The tool is an antique food chopping knife. They work really well in an unfinished wooden bowl.
