230 photos of readers’ thrifty vintage finds — Upload your photos, too

nutone in wall stereo system imageEvery six weeks or so I like to do a plain ole uploader potpourri — upload photos of your thrifty vintage finds. Last time around, readers uploaded 126 photos, including MsKittyMuses’ treasure. She explains:

Nutone in-wall stereo system, with radio, intercom, pull out record player, record cabinet and 5 speakers. Craigslist – guy unistalled it himself from an estate sale. $100

Wowza. Just the kinda bigger-than-four-breadboxes I’d try to sneak into the house. So… treasure hunting going, readers? Let’s see yer stuff, it’s easy peasy, uploader is ON –>

Upload photos of your most recent thrifty vintage finds, belowTips:

  • If you can figure out the settings, please set your camera to no bigger than “medium” images, so files aren’t too large — large files really slow down the slide show.
  • (2) Uploader DOES work but message you get on screen *may be* funky and confusing. Upload ONCE and trust the image it there — I just need to “set new photos free” from my control panel and will be checking throughout the weekend to do so.
  • (3) Terms of Use apply. Plus: Keep those toilet lids DOWN!
  • (4) If you are taking a room shot and want to improve your photo skills, check out Kate’s tips on taking great room shots.

    I found a Gunlocke swivel/tilt chair on a dumpster. The wood parts are immaculate but the tilt mechanism has “issues.” I’m working on a repair, but it probably needs to be replaced. I have had no luck at all finding replacement parts for the mechanism. If you have suggestions, I’d be happy to hear them

    Love all of these finds. I found a sweet MCM Broyhill Premier Forward 70 breakfront and credenza today. In very good condition from the thrift mall.
