I got this teal and ivory fan at an antique mall in Plymouth, MA, and am constantly afraid of accidentally sticking my finger through that widely spaced cage into the sharp metal blades. But it sure looks nice!
The vintage Bennington, VT pennant was a birthday present from my old college roommate (we went to Bennington College, where Peter Dinklage just gave the commencement speech! And was handed a homemade mace by a graduating student on his way up to the podium. Go Bennington!)
I've been on the search high and low for a vintage double boiler. Never did I think I'd find such a cute red and white enamel one in almost perfect condition. Also, potato masher! (Both from the Fairfield Antiques Mall in Fairfield, ME)
At Cabot Mill Antiques in Brunswick, ME, I was intrigued by this box containing a mysterious electric game of some sort?
The minute I opened the box I said in my head, "I'm buying this." This educational game from the 1920s has a bunch of illustrated cards, which can be slotted over the little metal pins. Then the child connects the picture to its appropriate description with two little metal spokes. We haven't gotten it working yet, but I'm assuming it makes a noise when you make the right connection, although I suppose it could shock you when you get it wrong!
