Vintage Gems

June 10, 2009

I promise this will be one of the last posts on the random finds from my grandmother’s house… but these next few things are just so interesting!

First are two Wilson tennis rackets. Can you actually still use vintage equipment?


I wish I could find out when these were bought, but judging from the heartthrob Tony Trabert picture on the handle, I’m guessing the 1950’s.

Next is a Futuro Rib Belt…

Perhaps Kramer was a little behind the times with his idea of the “Bro” because this Rib Belt has a copyright of 1968.

old as ...

When I stumbled upon this in the bathroom, I just had to laugh. I guess when my future child finds the Spanx I never wear, she’ll laugh too.

Be sure to read the whole description… at least it sounds comfortable!
