If you’re a collector of items or advertising from Minnesota companies, check out the vintage glass bottle of Gold Cross liquid “concentrated beverage base” in “imitation strawberry” flavoring currently in our case at Exit 55 Antiques. The syrup was made by Brechet & Richter Company of Minneapolis, Minnesota; here’s the article I wrote about the company and the bottle.
As always, we had a blast working at Exit 55 Antiques last Friday. Sadly, there’s poor connection to the Internet there, so we couldn’t post any updates live; but we did update our case, adding lots of new things! Lots more vintage hats, vintage jewelry, kitchenalia, carnival glass, and old advertising items.
Derek and Deanna Dahlsad will be working at Exit 55 Antiques (Fergus Falls, MN) on Friday, August 24, 2012; so come on over and see us!
Along with our stuff in the case (and the garden and other primitive pieces outside), we’ll be there selling what everyone else has. (You can see some of what’s in the store at the Pasttime Antiques & Collectibles page at Facebook!) If you’ve got stuff to sell, or just want to talk about antiques and collectibles, stop on in and see us!
As always, the store hours are 10 to 5. Hope to see you there!
(Yes, this pretty pink masked vintage doll music box will be there — unless someone buys her by then!)
Added a few things to the case at Antiques On Broadway… The wooden mail sorter box from the Fergus Falls, MN, post office ($100). It’s on top of the case, between the box of Easy Rider Magazines and the smaller crate full of assorted vintage magazines. Near it, an antique barrel or keg ($75).
We also added a vintage Kool-Aid dispenser by Chilton ($15); which isn’t very primitive, but we love pop culture collectibles too. Don’t you?
Today, Saturday, July 28 (2012), we’re having a good old fashioned rummage or yard sale!
So stop on buy, err, by 14 6th Ave N in Fargo, ND — in the alley. Open from 9 to 3.
Some of the items include two foosball tables — one vintage, one newer model. (We posted them at Craig’s List too.)
