Beautiful bowl! Love the pattern and colour. It's just the right size for a salad. Wish I could find more of this set. It was packaged well and came in a reasonable amount of time. Shall treasure this. Thank you!

Red....every room needs it! This vintage red Samsonite captured the attention of Country Living magazine and shown here in a spread in their Nov 2015 issue. I'm now happy to say it will be on a children's tv show on PBS. Find some red for your decor here.

About

I love all things vintage....period. It all has a history and I want you to be a part of it.

My name is Pam and I can’t drive past a thrift store or yard sale without braking my car. I grew up with parents who wanted to save a dollar and they knew how to do it. Most of the furniture in my parents’ home came from Aunt Sal’s (The Salvation Army), auctions or estate sales. All our great clothes came from the synagogue at the rummage sale. The Jewish Rummage Sale was like a national holiday in our house. My mom “saled” before it got popular. Our home was always unique because of the great finds my mom and dad procured.

This love of caring for older things and keeping them from landfills became a way of life for me. I would much rather shop in a thrift store than go to the mall. I love the energy of finding a treasure that you can put in your home and display it proudly knowing you were keeping that past alive. If only some of these items could talk and tell us what they’ve seen along the way.

Since I only have so much space in my home for treasures, I’ve decided to offer my hunting services to you. I live in an area of the U.S. that is rife with vintage items ranging anywhere from the 1800s and up. I love when I go to a yard sale and an 80-year old woman tells me the items I am purchasing were her mothers. I want all these items to be taken care of. So off they go to you so you can appreciate them and make a cozy space with your finds.

My shop is eclectic and I don’t stick to one decade of style. You will find items for décor and items of fashion. If it’s beautiful, has good bones, has good design, is good quality, then I’m going to buy it, love it and find a home for it. I’m not the guy at the yard sale with the station wagon full with the couch on top held by clothes line. I am the one that is taking their time on items to make sure they will bring good energy into your home.

Since my inspiration came from my mom and dad, I had to name my shop after them. My mother’s kitchen is full of roosters and chickens; they are on shelves, on paintings, on the dishes and even on the wallpaper. Thus The Rooster’s Nest was natural for me. Thanks mom and dad for instilling the spirit of conservation and preservation. Let’s find ways to keep vintage items out of the garbage can and into our homes.

I’m sure you will find something that is calling out to you from these items in my shop. Happy shopping and looking forward to meeting you.

Welcome to The Rooster’s Nest Vintage, where you will find fabu American antiques and vintage items of all varieties. No decade is greater than any other in my opinion. If it looks good, then I’ll sell it.

I describe all vintage items with my photography and description, as accurately as possible and make note of any conditions worthy of describing. Please remember that what I sell is vintage and not perfect. These items are old, and generally have minor wear consistent with age and use. Someone has lovingly taken care of these items, but perhaps a chip or crazing may have taken place. This will be noted in the description or in the photograph. I try to be a tough critic when it comes to condition and point out any tiny flaw, things most people will not even care about. If you have any questions about a particular item, please make sure to contact me prior to purchase. I am always happy to get you more information or images so you can make a well-informed decision when buying from my shop.

Shipping

Let them know the gift's from you!

Shipping is based on the furthest zone from Western Pennsylvania. Shipping may also include a small amount to help cover the cost of supplies. I will weigh your items and calculate the BEST shipping price for you.

Expect big savings when you combine shipping for the items you purchase.
