Nail News

9 Jan

Welcoming 2014, and Happy New Year to all! Seems like forever sinceĀ One Rusty Nail‘s last Nail News shop update, and we have a lot of new things to share!

Shop News & Updates

First up, a note of thanks – to all our customers! The 2013 holiday season was a great success and we’re so very grateful to each and every sale. Your purchases allow us to continue to do what we love (treasure hunting!) and keep our shop continuously stocked with new and interesting vintage finds. Seriously, thank you!

We are fast approaching February now, and we’ve been planning some shop events to celebrate our two-year Etsy shop anniversary. This includes special sales, a giveaway, and other promotions similar to last year’s celebration. Keep an eye out for upcoming details later in January!

Valentine’s Day approaches! Gifting vintage to your sweetheart is always a fun idea, and we’re here to help!

We offer direct gift shipping to a recipient – near or far – with all the added personal touches of colorful matching tissue paper, quality packing materials, and a gift tag with your own personalized heartfelt message enclosed. You pick out their gift, we’ll handle the rest!

Clearance Sale Time!

It’s a new year, and we’re saying “out with the old!”

We’ve recently created a new shop section called CLEARANCE SALE. This spot will be regularly updated with items rotating in (primarily those that have been hanging around our shop for 4+ months). For the most part, once items enter the Clearance section, if they are not purchased and expire, they will NOT be renewed.

That means, if you’ve had your eye on something in there, please make sure to scoop it up at your earliest convenience because once it’s gone, it’s gone!

Our rule of thumb for the Clearance section is keeping the majority of items there under $10, with absolutely nothing ever going over $15. Some items will be marked down to 80% – 90% off original listing prices!

We have limited space in our store room, and One Rusty Nail is constantly changing and evolving. We have to keep our vintage goodies moving!

Ads, Ads, Ads!

As you may know, last year we merged our sister-shop, AdvertiZING, with One Rusty Nail to offer our vintage advertising ephemera in the same place. We’ve seen a resurgence of interest in our ads over the past month, so we’ve recently been busy sorting through our extensive collection of old magazines and pulling out the best advertisements to get listed!

Vintage ads make wonderful home decor! We ship them loosely rolled in a secure tube mailer, and we include a freebie or two with every purchase.

Simply slip your ad into a frame to hang a touch of authentic old-fashioned charm to any space. These work great in the kitchen, man cave, and beyond!

Ads make unique gift ideas, too. Our ads are listed at just $5.95 each. Browse the current collection inside our shop section Paper Ephemera & Ads.

Thank you for reading, following our blog, and continuing to support our shop! Here’s wishing you a happy, prosperous 2014!



SUPER SUNDAY SALE – 50% Off, Today Only!

SUPER SUNDAY SALE! 50% off, today only! (6.9.13)

This retro wooden case is uniquely beautiful! Covered in rich brown tones and a funky floral and flourish pattern, it’s just as cute as it is functional! The rounded horseshoe shape gives a very distinctive style, and there’s lots of room on the inside for storage. A great vintage purse accessory, or perhaps a rustic addition to your southwest home decor!

In good vintage condition, this purse has a few scuffs here and there on the exterior. On the back of the case between the buckles it seems the leather trim is fraying out a bit at the stitch (see fourth photo). This issue could easily be solved with a couple dots of glue, I’d imagine.

The latching buckle moves fluidly and functions perfectly. The attached top handle is tight and secure. All hardware is metal, and slightly tarnished as expected of age.

The interior of the box is dark stained wood. I have found no cracks or damage to any of the wood, other than some slight shelf wear on the bottom (last photo). The interior of the purse is clean and actually looks like it has never been used.

The wood is quite thin, making the purse nicely lightweight. The hinges on back work just fine, and are tight enough that the lid will hold itself up when fully opened.

This case is covered in what appears to be hand-tooled leather (based on the scent and feel). This outer shell is glued to the wood, as you can see from the seam on the back.

The style of design is very similar to the popular souvenir creations of the 1950’s and ’60’s from the southwestern states and Mexico. However, it’s not marked with a manufacturer, so the exact age and origin are not for certain.

The case itself (not including the handle) measures 6″ tall, 6″ across at the widest.

SUPER SUNDAY SALE! 50% off, today only! (6.2.13)

This funky set of yellow and brown serving dishes fits together in such a unique way! With partitions in each, they make the perfect arrangement for veggies, snacks, chips and dip, cheese and crackers, and so much more! The leaf-like design give a swirling mid-century modern appeal. Great for a family group or party setting!

In great used vintage condition, with no chips, cracks, or paint wear. There is some scuffing shelf wear along the bottom base. The glaze is lustrous and glossy.

Both pieces are marked on the bottom with “Frazier Calif. 614”. This is Frazier Pottery, circa 1950’s.

These dishes are quite large! Each piece measures 12.5″ long, 6.5″ wide, and about 1.5″ deep.
