Vintage Children's Refrigerator

About a 1 1/2 years ago at the antique mall that I'm in (before I was a dealer there) I saw this little vintage children's fridge. Actually it's not that small and it's really heavy. After going in there several times and not buying it-even when it was marked down, I finally decided -I can't get that fridge out of my mind. So I went in to get it and it was gone-we've all done that, haven't we! Well, fortunately this is a happy ending because the owner called the dealer and they still had it-I was thrilled. I've always wanted to use it on the table at a backyard party and put some fun little drinks in it, but we haven't had any parties yet-(guess I've been too busy-will have to put it on the list for next year!). Come to think of it-I bought a small soda bottle about 6 months ago that would look great in this fridge-now where did I put it?

  2. Wow, that is really vintage! How nice to own one....Christine

  3. Love the patina on this! What a great conversation piece!

  4. Oh, yes, I've done the same thing - gone back to get something that I just can't get out of my mind. Sometimes it's still there....and sometimes I lose out. But lucky you that it was still there! And I love the way you plan on using it, too! Happy WW to you!

  7. The rusty crusty little thing is all the rage now days. Lots of us really like it.

    I am glad to know other people do the wish I had bought it and drive real fast the next day to go back and buy our little thing we couldn't live another day without.
    Oh and can't sleep good for thinking about it.

  8. What a great little fridge. I love the emblem. That is such a cute idea to use it outside:)

  10. Rebecca - I do that alot, also! Procrastinate buying something that really calls out to me... and then it's gone! This little frig was just meant to go home with you! Can't wait to see what you do with it... :) mercedes

  11. What a great fridge - my sister had one when we were small I remember - actually, I think it was pink! Happy WW!

  12. I too have a sweet old vintage lil fridge! After seeing your pic, it has made me want to pull mine out of the closet and put it out for a cute display! How about in the kitchen??? Happy Junkin..Cathy aka GGJ

  13. Hi Rebecca, I've done that, and have kicked myself. I hate to say, when someone has put something down and walked away and I want it, I'll snatch it up. It is too cute, it would be great at a party holding drinks. Have a great week.

  14. Oh, I just love this darling little fridge! Sooooo shabby and chic! I do the same thing with stuff, it is called stalking an item. Giggle!

  15. Oh my gosh, how sweet is that?!! I see them around here but they are priced very high.

    I'm visiting for White Wednesday. I'd love for you to pop in for a quick visit. :0)

    Have a wonderful day,
    Stephanie ♥
