Out With the New in With the Old: Our Recent Vintage Finds


It’s finally April and that means a few things for us at Sincerely, Doris Jane. Blooming flowers, baseball season AND … last but certainly not least … antique show season! 

Be it Burlington Antique Show, Springfield Extravaganza or just a quick stop into a few of our go-to antique stores, we have a hard time coming home empty handed. We love to see how other people incorporate their finds and family heirlooms into their home decor so we thought we’d share some things we picked up at last year’s markets. We threw in a couple finds from our antique shop trips too, well, because they’re just too cute.

The first round of Burlington shows is coming up this weekend. Find all the vendor and admission information you need here. See ya there!

1940’s Ivory Soap makes a great shelf accent in a bathroom and have a little Cincinnati flair being made by Procter & Gamble. Found for $5 a bar at Venice Pavilion Antique Mall in Ross, OH.

After seeing one that was out of her price range at an antique show, Jess searched for months for an antique ink well and finally found it last summer for $50 on eBay.

Remember this old Jergens sign Em found on Black Friday? It’s been waiting for the perfect place in her home and she found it. This hangs above an artificial plant holder (IKEA) and is the perfect addition to her guest bathroom.

This little brass frame was just $5 at Burlington Antique Show last year. It holds a photo of our Great-Grandparents atop their 1930’s Majestic Radio in Emily’s house. The doily under the plant ($10 at IKEA) is also antique and belonged to our Great-Great Aunt Clara.

Jess is drawn to anything blue and white and made of porcelain. This is a hand-me-down from our mom, but we’ve seen them at shows recently.

This delicate painted salt pot now holds Em’s wedding rings overnight and perfectly matches the walls around her vanity. Just $5!

We have stacks of antique books just waiting to be used. They are the perfect touch of “old” to a modern room. We’re not quite sure where these were purchased, but we’re sure we didn’t pay much for them. Usually $5-10 will get you a started on your collection.
