Lions and Tigers and Bears...Oh My!

We all know how much Ethel loves animals. While we no longer have a store cat (she moved with the architecture firm when they moved out of our back room to their new digs), we do love having a menagerie of sorts here at the store. These animals don’t shed, and don’t need to be fed!

Who doesn’t love kitschy 50’s poodles? This vintage painted metal tissue box cover and spare toilet role holder are perfect for your fluffy pink powder room. Oooh la la!

Poodle theme bathroom set is $30

UPDATE: Poodle theme bathroom set has sold!

How about this pair of vintage desk organizers? This wire kitty and puppy keep your letters and papers neat and tidy, and they won’t beg for treats.

Desk organizers are $15 each

UPDATE: Kitty desk organizer has sold!

We’re not sure if antelope and rams would be friends or foes in the wild, but this pair of Art Deco style 1970‘s Studio Nova ceramic figures look like they’re best friends.

Figures are $15 each

This flying goose TV lamp looks like it’s about to take flight over the Blue Mountains. No, it’s not Blue Mountain Pottery, but a rare McCoy pottery TV lamp. Perfect for that retro man-cave.

Goose TV lamp is $45

This stemmed mod rooster jar is too small to hold cornflakes, but it looks better empty anyway!

Rooster jar is $12

UPDATE: Rooster jar has sold!

If fantasy animals are more your style, catch up on whats happening on The Planet of the Apes with this vintage comic book. Scarier than the movie!

Comic book is $6

UPDATE: Comic books have all sold!

How about a trip to the circus? This set of 7 vintage Libbey Carousel glasses from the 1950‘s are $6 each. Featuring tigers, elephants, horses, leopards and deers in frothy pastels, this set is perfect for iced tea with Dr. Dolittle!

Glasses are $6 each
UPDATE: only one glass left!

How about a set of vintage puzzle postcards? Each features vintage wildlife scenes, including a circus lady with her parrots. So much more fun than email!

Each set of 3 is only $2 each

Come by the store to see what other animals we have hanging around. Who knows, you may just find yourself a new furry or feathered friend.

See you at the store!
