Sorry, this item has sold.

We have been in the business of purveying the vintage and unusual since 2006. Over the years, tens of thousands of small items have passed through our hands. And along the way, many are forgotten.

While cataloging the hundreds of items we have listed, we came across odds and ends: items that we only have a few of, items that never made it into the shop, or supplies that we intended to put to use but never did.

This is an INCREDIBLY SUPER MYSTERY JAR in which we have placed assorted "de-stash" of dozens and dozens of items. It contains random, ever-changing goodies that have a retail value in our shop of at least $65, often more. These items could include: vintage trinkets or dime store items, crafting supplies, miniatures, paper ephemera, plastic charms, jewelry findings, old game pieces, thrift store treasure, sales samples, warehouse finds, or old store stock.

You may never know what you will get unless we tell, and as we unearth more treasures, the mix gets more bizarre. We list these in LIMITED EDITION SERIES and give a small hint as to what you may find!

The JAR weighs 7 OUNCES or more!! The photos provided serve only as EXAMPLE of jar contents and do not indicate exactly what you will receive!

***PLEASE NOTE that jars in the same listing will contain some similar or identical contents.***

Definite inclusions of JAR:

Vintage plastic charms and/or Cracker Jack prizes, vintage toothpick fortune, vintage Kodak film charm, tiny miniature vintage baby, vintage coupons, vintage game pieces, lockets and charms, miniature tea set, tiny deck of cards, and vintage dime store rings and jewelry! The rest is a MYSTERY!

COLOR: random
MEASUREMENTS: 4-1/2 x 3-1/4"

What are the measurements of this item?

Clear measurements are included with every description, but we are always happy to convert standard to metric for you, and metric to standard. Just ask!

Why does this old item look new?

Vintage (pre-2000) and antique (pre-1940) items will be stated in the title. Much of what we sell was found in old shops or foundries, almost always in multiples and usually discovered in the original packaging materials.

If an item is a new supply, it will be stated as such.

Old aluminum medallions? Not cheap and new?

Indeed! Due to the complexities of refining aluminum from ore, aluminum was considered more valuable than gold or silver through most of the 1800s. In the early 1900s the refinement was simplified, and aluminum became an inexpensive material. In the religious world, this meant that small devotionals were obtainable by anyone, even if they could not afford precious metals.

Most of the aluminum pieces we offer for sale are extremely vintage, even antique. Some bear the original foundry markings, and most have come from Europe.

Aluminum is lovely for its durability and ability to hold intricate detail. Being lightweight and shiny is not an indication of compromised quality, but rather an early alternative to heavier more costly metals.

DISCLAIMER: These items are NOT intended for use by children.

Intended solely for collecting and crafting, many of these vintage items have very small or potentially brittle parts, and were manufactured in an era before modern child safety laws existed. Please exercise common sense and caution, always supervise children and vulnerable adults with both small and breakable items.

Likewise, flammable items such as incense are not to be ingested and are to be used only as intended, under constant supervision.

How is the current worldwide catastrophe affecting orders?

Orders will be mailed in a timely fashion, but may experience shipping delays while in transit. These potential delays are not within our control.
