Vintage Christine Giveaway, And...

Vintage Christine is having another giveaway HERE!!

Well folks, this has got to be THE most kick ass giveaway I have ever seen!


$100 eBay gift card and a $50 eBay gift card!

Holy smokes! Think of the atomic, mid-century, 1950's, vintage stuff you can buy for that!

And if you follow my blog, everything I got in my last post was way under $100 (minus s/h). It's a buyers market at eBay!

Speaking of the things I got from eBay...

Finally opened this and wow they are in better condition than it shows in the photo! Great deal!

This arrived, with the original box wrapped in the thinnest paper, a couple pieces of tape wrapped around the box, and amazingly, still in one piece.

Sellers. Do NOT send games, toys or ANYTHING vintage by mailing it in it's original box!! Put it in another bigger stronger box! Yikes! Good thing I only paid $4 for it.

This lamp arrived. Fantastic. Put a bulb in it, a shade on it, the matching atomic starburst finial and it lighted up. Came back into the living room a couple hours later and... It was dark. Now it won't light.
I guess rewiring is fairly simple, but I was hoping not to have to do that.

Can you believe, this arrived YESTERDAY! Has to be the fastest shipping ever on eBay! I love it! Needs a battery, which I will get today.

And then the post guy, after dropping off these packages, also left a "sorry we missed you, we have a package for you at such and such post office for your signature" deal right there in my mail box, after I came out as he was turning away. He never knocked on the door? Did he even have this package (what it is I have no clue) so does that mean I have to go all the way across town to go see if I have a package there?


People, I do not have time to cruise all over town, this is why I shop online lol...

So, sometimes things are fantastic, sometimes not, sometimes sellers are wonderful, sometimes not...

Hmmmm sounds like a metaphor for life.

Happy Wednesday everyone, now go check out Vintage Christines blog!
