Man-tiques for Dad’s Day

Father’s Day is only a couple weeks away, so I’m adding a few recently-discovered “man-tiques” to my booth....

Does your favorite Dad need a “new” stein for his collection?

How about an old bottle? Does he have a Coca-Cola bottle embossed with his hometown?

If fishing is his thing, check out these folk art fish.

And if automobilia is his field of collecting, look at this Tung-Sol tin with the original bulbs still nestled inside.

Is your Dad/Hubby hard to buy for?


  1. Well 1st I have no hubby and my Dad is deceased also however I do like man-tiques usually fishing items I see so many at sales
    I really like binoculars
    and have 2 very old sets in leather cases

  2. My hubby is a misery to buy for. BUT then he went junkin' with me and found the wonder of beat up old metal signs to cover his man cave walls! Whew - life is easier now.

  3. It looks to me like you have got all of your bases covered for whatever it is that dad likes!

    Have a great week,


  4. You sure found sound fun man-tiques Sherry. I've been so darn busy lately and can't believe that June is right around the corner. Thanks for the reminder.

  5. Love the man-tiques! I know my Son In Law would enjoy those bulbs!!


  6. My hubby doesn't like the manly old stuff at all. Unless its sports related. His birthday is right after Father's Day, too. This is my first year without dad here for Father's Day.

  7. Love these treasures for Dad!


  8. Cool, excuse me, "manly" items! I know some guys who'd be gaga for your great vintage finds. The sign is just adorable!

  9. I love that first framed saying! My husband is easy to buy for, but my dad is incredibly hard...he has everything and is so picky! I usually just buy him a gift card. Hope all is well. Miss you!

  10. The framed verse is really cute! I love those folk art fish and the stein on the right looks just like one we donated to charity years ago!

  11. I love the old bakelite radio. Have a Blessed day, Trisha
