Gifts for dad - coming up!

Posted by Yvette Bessels on

This spring, I find myself with a stack of unlisted treasures from a wide array of beautiful estate sales and boy, it is a MIX! I have started to set aside items that go remarkably well together - this is my first little collection from the lot. Enjoy!



All items will be up for sale (Thursday) from 12PM.
Message me if you'd like to claim an item before it goes live.




1. Hand painted beer sign 'Beer 5c'

Nothing wets the appetite as a cold beer on a hot summers day... unless it's a picture of that beer! This saloon-style sign has been neatly painted in blues and yellows.

CAD $110


2. Brass shaving mirror

A vintage brass shaving mirror on stand. Great as dressing table decor, bathroom decor or bedroom decor. One side is a normal mirror, the other side is slightly concave and has a real funhouse quality to it (i.e. not very flattering haha!)

CAD $70


3. Barber shop quartet

A wonderful wooden barber shop quartet bar set that includes: Corky Sr, Corky Jr, Screwy and Cappy. Corky sr. has a chip on his shoulder, perhaps like your old man? 

CAD $65


4. 1930s NU-DELL Tie rack 

This 1937 tie rack has a little twist: turn the button and it will tell you which color tie to match up to your shirts and suits. Will not fix colour blindness.

CAD $25 


5. German hollow ground Straight Razor

The handle is of a faux ivory ('French Ivory', a sort of plastic made to look like ivory) and the blade will require sharpening for a satisfactory shave.

CAD $50


6. Pusser's Rum enamel mugs 

Vintage enamel mugs, both advertising mugs for British Navy Pusser's Rum, from the British Virgin Islands. 'Pusser's Rum, Good to the last drop'. 

CAD $45 for both


7. Novelty Ice tongs

A pair of tongs like no others - these 'dentures' are made to cubes, sugar cubes, or even your spaghetti. Great for that funny piece of barware and an excellent gag gift for a dad or granddad.

CAD $14.50


8. Wooden box

A Japanese made jewelry box, the inside is a moss green velveteen material, split into 3 compartments for necklaces, cufflinks, watches etc and a small section for rings.
CAD $35

9. Rolled gold pocket watch chain

A nice rolled gold pocket watch chain, this one being fairly short at 8.5 inches. All the links on the chain have been soldered - a good sign of a quality item. Great to finish off that steampunk or Victorian outfit and an essential accessory for any pocket watch loving gentleman. 
CAD $85

10. Volupte USA pill box

A tiny vintage brass pill box, the outside undecorated (uncleaned) and beautiful in its simple elegance, the inside sparkling with a gold wash. This small snuff box would be excellent to use as a little pill box, snuff box or cufflink box
CAD $27.50
