Back again with another obvious (and blatant) ad for our Etsy online store. Today we listed more items, including this fine pair of solid brass duck head bookends. These weigh in at a respectable 1 pound each and will support several of your most treasured volumes.
Update: The bookends have sold. Please visit our store from the safety of your home, especially this year. Here is the link: Roadtirement Vintage Etsy Store
Well here is another blatant ad for our online Etsy store. We just listed this adorable wood carving of two little songbirds perched on a unique piece of driftwood or possibly a piece of a root of some kind. What a cute extra for one of your shelves, or a fun piece for any bird or nature lover.
There are nine more photos on the listing giving you several different views of this art work and pricing and shipping details.
You can follow this link to the listing.
Picture this 5 inch dish filled with M&M’s, red hots, Hershey Kisses or any bite sized candy pieces.

It was common around the turn of the century (the 19th century, that is, for you Generation Z’s) to produce paperweights made of heavy glass with photographs glued to the bottom of the paperweight. Thus you can see the photograph through the paperweight.
Roadtirement Vintage store has a very nice paperweight with a photo for sale in our Etsy Store online. We do not know who is in the picture, and if the building is a school or a church. If it’s a school, the picture is probably a teacher. If it’s a church, well then the picture is most likely the Pastor. We do know that it was made by Wilfred Smith and Co. of New York.

Here’s another pretty cool item we have listed on our Etsy online store. This cast iron toy truck is a vintage aged reproduction of the original made right after the turn of the century. This beauty weighs in at a whopping 6 and a half pounds. It is 12 inches long and 6 inches high. Click here for a direct link to the listing on our Etsy Store. This item comes with free shipping!
Well if you need an elephant, and a good luck elephant at that, Roadtirement Vintage (our online Etsy Store) can help you out. We just listed not one, but two different elephants in our Etsy store today. The one in the picture is a very cool leather elephant. Notice that his trunk is raised, which is said by many to be a sign of good luck. These days anything to help with good luck is desirable. Here is a direct link to that listing. Take a look around, we’d appreciate it. Thanks for reading and checking out these blatant advertisements of ours. Oh, the other elephant is brass. See him here.
A bit ago we added this stunning set of bronze bookends to our Etsy Store, Roadtirement Vintage. These birds stand at 7 inches tall. Notice that there are two different bird poses. They will look great in your library or bookshelf. They would also look good on a coffee table. Click here for a direct link to the listing on our Etsy Store where you will find more information and additional photos.

We just the other day added several unique items for sale in our online Etsy shop.
One of these is a very nice, near perfect condition heavy cast iron bank. Called the Transvaal Money Box, this accurate reproduction was originally made in 1885 as much as a political satire as it was a useful item. Coins are put in a slot on top of the character’s top hat. As the coin falls it makes the pipe in his mouth jump a bit. See other details, more history and lots more pictures at our Etsy shop listing here.
We invite you to check out our whole store.
Hand carved resin, stands approx. 14 inches tall
Sounds like an odd combination, doesn’t it? Well, it is. Sher and I have been watching the protests on YouTube. There are plenty of channels that are showing the protests, and we have been watching one that has 6 feeds from different cities around the country. Believe it or not, it does make for interesting viewing. It will be interesting to see how the protests in Seattle with the “Capital Hill Autonomous Zone” will be handled, either by local or state government.
Now to the elephants. We just listed the figurine of seven elephants on our Etsy Store. Elephants traditionally are thought to bring protection, strength, good luck, prosperity and wisdom to your home, or even your office. A stack of seven is an extra boost. Notice that the trunks are uplifted meaning they are spreading the good luck. You can see the listing of the elephants here at our Etsy store. (Yes, this is a blatant plug for our Etsy Store! Not sorry…)
