scroungebird's Shop Announcement

Spring is upon us! I specialize in wonderful found vintage objects that would otherwise end up in our landfills. But I rescue them, and give them an opportunity for a new life in someone's house, kitchen, or wardrobe!

Just re-added dozens of holiday theme vintage goodies such as vintage Hallmark ornaments, holiday holly tray, musical Santa, angels, bells, handmade vintage ornaments, and more...

FOUND! RURAL PENNSYLVANIA: HALLOWEEN ORANGE & BLACK SALT & PEPPER SHAKERS, LEMON GREEN MODERNTONE SUGAR & CREAMER SET, EMERALD GREEN HAEGER PEDESTAL BOWL, PEA POD PIXIE FIGURINE CIRCA 1920s. I'm sizzling with the anticipation of finding other people's treasures! Find "Scroungebird Vintage" on Facebook, and follow my finds on Twitter!

I specialize in a lot of Vintage Japanese antiques as well as things made in Japan for the US market from the 1920s, 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s. Aside from that, I've sold a broad variety of other vintage collectibles and memorabilia including vintage and antique clothing, unique folk art appliqué, velvet lace cameo portrait, kitchenware, science specimen boxes and mounts, vintage garden planters, gorgeous art pottery, porcelain baby dolls, vintage buttons in sets, metal Dutch made tins, carnival glass, mid century dresser valets, hand embroidered birds and flowers, wooden coffee & tea boxes, antique Italian pressed paper items, faux stone malachite metal letter box with gold florentine edging, a Bakelite mirror compact tissue holder with original tissues and a gold star pattern, witchy black cats, vintage occult objects, haunted teacups & other haunted objects, purple glass, odds and ends, upcycled vintage stuff, teapots, enamelware, red and pink transfer ware, hand painted tole, glass paperweights, scandinavian art glass, English tea tins, greek busts, vintage kitsch, Fenton glass candy dishes and angels, retro mail sorters, rare plates, vintage snow globes, very old antique bottles, tin lanterns, kiddush cups, gravy boats, genie bottles, vintage tumbler sets, antique baby jesus and madonnas, antique letterpress blocks, vintage board games, tea sets, wood bowls, ornaments, and window frames. I have so much, and so much more I have not yet listed! When I have vintage furniture, I sell it locally via the Philadelphia Craigslist.

Having my Etsy stores and small Craigslist enterprise enables me to stay at home with my daughter and spend more time with her, and share doing what I LOVE to do, which is to be a total scroungebird, thrifter, re-purposer, recycler, and temporary collector of beautiful things on their way to new homes. It's kind of like the limbo of the vintage object spirit world, before they get reincarnated as wonderful new things for other people!

And when I'm not scrounging, I'm thinking about scrounging, or planning fabulous artwork to do with things I've scrounged or found!
