What Made People Lose Their Minds Over Beanie Babies? | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

Vintage Cream Wool Angora Designer Cloche Hat with Rhinestones - Mr. John Hat - with Original Hangtag!

Vintage Cream Wool Angora Designer Cloche Hat with Rhinestones - Mr. John Hat - with Original Hangtag! | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

Creme colored felt in an angora wool -- i.e. it has a fuzzy nap. True to the cloche hats of the 1930s, this vintage hat from the 1960s is designed to be worn low on the forehead, with your flashing eyes slightly below the brim. The hat is accented with a string of bright rhinestones (in a black setting to highlight them) which form a loop at the side where the hat is softly gathered by the ear for an asymmetrical cut. Understated classy drama for the lady who says volumes in a whisper...

Part of the mid-century modern resurgence of cloche hats, this is a super vintage designer hat made by Mr. John -- THE Mr. John!

Vintage King's Crown Rainbow VIP Keychain Keyring Pat Pending Vegas Casino Maybe?

Vintage King's Crown Rainbow VIP Keychain Keyring Pat Pending Vegas Casino Maybe? | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

A handsome and impressive vintage keychain. Goldtone, with etching encircling a medallion center featuring a golden crown with red accents on a black background. On the crown, it reads, "King's Crown, Rainbow, V.I.P."

The back of the fob is textured.

On the keyring itself, on the front, is the word "squeeze" -- a direction on how to use it. On the back, it reads, "HIT USA, Pat. Pending."

Measures approximately 2 3/4 inches long.

Not sure if this is from the old King's Crown hotel and casino in Las Vegas? (What the original Aladdin was for six months between 1964-1965). It has that look, but we can't say for sure.

How To Clean Old Feed Sacks

How To Clean Old Feed Sacks | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it
While the graphics can be real beauties, they lie beneath layers & clumps of stuff that is not so beautiful and smells — like dirt and, yes, manure.

In order to be of any real value, the vintage and antique feed sacks must be cleaned.

But it is neither safe nor advisable to throw them into the wash machine. (Since the weave of burlap sacks is so wide, I rarely ever trust my washing machine with them. Even the gentle or hand-wash settings always seems to create pulls or holes, often starting at the threads at the seams. I just don’t like to risk it.)

Instead, you must hand wash them — and, due to their size, one at a time at that.

While the old feed sacks I cleaned today are made of burlap, you can clean other feed, seed, flour, sugar sacks etc. in the same way.
