Funky Retro Radio & Pyrex!


pictured: IDK what it is, but I liked it & asked the woman if I could take a photo of it. $50 & she said she had it in every room of her house at some point except for her bathroom.

I was finally blessed with a Sunday off so I treated myself & my boyfriend to the Sunday Antique Market here in Toronto! I've only been once before & left empty handed. This is the closest you'll get to a flea market downtown.

Open from dawn to 5PM (12 hours), you never now what you are going to find. According to
their website, you never know who is going to show up as well - Diane Keaton, Jamie Lee Curtis... Now there were no celebrity sightings this time & only a few Pyrex sightings, I did leave with 3 thrilling items for my collection.


2 new Pyrex fridgies! Awesome condition with lids. The seller was telling me he had all kinds earlier, but some woman had come & cleaned him out. Lucky Thrifter, was that you?

Onto my favourite purchase of the day. I`m so thrilled about this one. It has to be one of my favourite of the year so far, probably wind up at my end of year top 10!

This vintage
/retro/whatever radio!


Isn`t it cool
? When the radio is on, or just when it`s plugged in, the yellow, green & red lights you see on the inside go on & off. It was like a little rave in out kitchen. There is no maker marking. The only thing I am able to tell is that the radio was made in China. Does anybody know anything about it? I prepare a little video of the radio - with the lights on & with the lights off.

OK, WELL THE VIDEO KEEPS UPLOADING IN ERROR & I`M TIRED... SO, I WILL TRY TO FEATURE IT TOMORROW.

FUNNY STORY...

I knew I wouldn`t be able to afford this, but I wanted to know the price out of curiosity & it wasn`t priced, so I made my boyfriend ask while I was looking at another booth. My boyfriend comes back & says to me:

BF: "it`s only $14.50!"
ME: "$1450.. that`s a lot!"
BF: "No it`s not, I`ll buy it for you."
ME: "Babe, your don`t understand. It`s not $14.50, it`s $1450. You`re too cute."
BF: "$1450 for that.. that`s stupid!`

Too funny he thought that a vintage advertisement for RCA would be fifteen bucks.. haha.
