Linda @ Coastal Charm is once again hosting her Nifty Thrifty Tuesday link party.
As I was drinking my coffee and checking e-mails this morning I looked up at the vintage pieces I have displayed in my office and thought I would share these nifty and thrifty old office items at Linda's party today.
Here's where modern technology meets office old school.
My favorite piece, this vintage phone, I found in my in-laws basement 14 years ago. I remember my mother-in-law thinking I was crazy for wanting this old phone. I love this phone as much today as I did back then.
This second phone was purchased at a flea market a couple of years ago for $5.00 (I can't remember what's on today's grocery list but I remember how much I paid for the phone....go figure!)
A few weeks ago I bought this old phone receiver for $2.00.
It may be a little difficult to see but I'm using it as a bookend for two old books.
I found this portable Underwood typewriter last fall at a flea market for $20.00. It's the perfect size to fit on top of an old letter file box that is from the company my Dad worked at for over 40 years.
Last summer I found a cigar box full of old wood handled rubber stamps at a thrift store.
Of course I bought them all and I now have them displayed under a cloche.
These last few items round out the display. They were all purchased at garage sales or thrift stores.
Office equipment has come a long way. Although I love the look of the old equipment I can't imagine life now without my computer or cell phone!
Have a great day.
