Welcome to Julie Beach Vintage
I am always on the lookout for my vintage treasures, especially when they are beach related to happy memories of childhood summers spent in Florida. Memories of the ocean, the white sandy beaches, palm trees, flamingos, sea gulls, and the many sea shells that I would find. I also love finding old gas station souvenirs of Florida. The kind of things that I used to see from the 60’s and 70’s. Now that we have lived in Florida for many years I am still on the lookout for my beach treasures.
I am a collector, but a collector that will never stop collecting. I hope you enjoy some of my many beachy vintage treasures that I will be adding to this blog post in time.
Julie, from the Sunshine State
Palm Trees and Flamingos
I was so very excited to find these! HAND PAINTED! When people think of Florida thoughts automatically go to the ocean first of all, the beaches second, palm trees third, and flamingos are at least in the top ten, if not the top five.
I do love the bright PINK Flamingos
It wouldn’t be Florida without them
Florida Orange Juice
(It also wouldn’t be Florida without this either.)
A Rose from my Garden
My Grandmother’s Vintage Thermos
But paired with my modern clear blue cups.
My Vintage Summer Kitchen
I was getting a bit tired of my kitchen and wanted to make some changes. I didn’t want to spend a lot of money but I did want to make it fun for the summer months. When Gordon and I saw this toaster online we had to have it! It is a vintage memory for me as I grew up in a family that had the green Volkswagon hippy van. Although the toaster is not vintage, it is a vintage theme.
Beach Bucket Utensil Holder
I have an assortment of beach buckets that I keep in the garage so it was easy to think of this as a kitchen utensil holder to add to my beachy kitchen. I did buy some new blue spoons, whisks, ladles, and even some blue knives. I also included some of our beach shovels as well.
Our SEA Salt
Black sea salt from Hawaii as well as some of our other sea salts.
A Bit of Beachy Fun
These are my “Sand Globes” that I made a few years ago. I call them sand globes because they are a beachy theme with teenagers and beer cans that are vintage birthday cake toppers that I found at a thrift store. The shells that you see surrounding them at their base are hair scrunchies.
Florida Souvenir Tray
When I talk about old Florida gas station souvenirs from the 60’s and 70’s, this tray would be it!
They were nothing special at the time and probably considered to be a bit on the tacky side, but I think age has been kind to many of them and now they take on a softer look. This tray houses some of our backyard key limes.
Vintage Florida Scarf
This was a beautiful vintage find for me! Such a lovely scarf. My little red crab looks very nice with it as well. He even houses a little message inside.
For those of you that appreciate the past then I am so happy you stopped by. I hope you will be back and I also hope to add many more things to this post.
Have a Beachy Day!
