When my DH and I were first married, 28 years ago, we didn't have much.  But we enjoyed what we had and one of those things was this old radio.  

 This was in the early 80's and everyone of our friends had the latest electronics and the music to go with it.   We had this vintage radio that we listened to Saturday Night Oldies on, every Saturday night.  We loved it.

Yes it still works.  It takes a couple of minutes to warm up, but it works.   It gets most of its use now during the Christmas season as I sit at the dining room table doing crafts, this old thing blares out the songs of the season.   I am constantly telling the grands "don't touch" as they love turning these old knobs, see the fingerprints!    

Ahhh, memories.   

And look at this beautiful black and white transferware teacup!  Man I fell in love with it right away.   I found this for .50 at a garage sale!  The brass stand was free at another garage sale and the silver folding tray was yet another garage sale find for a couple of bucks! - score!  

 I hope you enjoyed this and the other vintage thingies that are on display at

I am also joining for her Garage Sale'n Party on Friday! 

Thank you for stopping by!   I really do enjoy your comments.   If you like what you see here, please feel free to follow my blog.   We can do this blogging journey together! 


  1. I enjoyed all your vintage showings today. I recall the radio like this. I have lots of old records but nothing to play them on. I am not sure if I could find a record player that I could use now. If I did, it would cost a mint.

  2. I really love your radio and the memories with it, that is a special piece. As always with me, vintage is always better than new and updated! Have a great VTT!

  3. Oh they don't make 'em like they used to. Still running after all these years.

    Love the transeferware too. Black is hard to come by.
