For a truly authentic retro look then this 1970s Dimplex Infra Red Heater Brand New Old Stock is a must-have! It is in very good unused condition but is unboxed, save for a cardboard wrap.

10 years ago, one of the first pieces of really cool vintage jewelry that I picked up, was a bracelet by Carl Tasha (1943 - 2006). Odd, organic and gorgeous, I noticed the hand scratched signature on the end of the cuff. It took some creative "googling" to find any info on Carl and his work. The article listed below, is more recent but a wonderful story of the family and their Provincetown, MA "artist's colony".

Eventually I ended up selling the piece to a friend of Carl's daughter who was giving to her as a gift. Apparently most of Carl's jewelry had been sold and the daughter had very few pieces upon his death in 2006.
Needless to say, it was the kind of sale that we dream of...a beautiful piece going to the daughter of the creator. What more can you ask for, than sending one of our treasures home.

You will see some similar pieces out there, in fact I have a ring now that is in the Tasha style but not Tasha. Carl did sign all of his pieces.
I'm showing the bracelet and the similar ring that I have currently, so that you can see how much they resemble each other. It is my belief that Carl's pieces will be very valuable one day and if you're fortunate enough to find one, you may want to hold onto it:).

Thank you to Etsy for holding onto to my original listing info and photos. The lesson learned, keep a copy of everything. In those early days, it didn't occur to me to keep a copy of photos or research info. They were in the listings and I thought that meant that they were stored for safe keeping. If you sell on Etsy, it does but if sell on another venue, they may not be.
Here is my original listing info...
"A Provincetown, MA artist for more than 30 years, Carl Tasha is known for his sculpture, jewelry and unique belt buckles. While some of his pieces are numbered, this one is not...making it one of a kind. Finding information on this interesting man is very difficult...the most informative reading is at
http://www.squidoo.com/artcapecod (this site is no longer in existence) but you will find interesting reading at the site below.

That's it everyone...tuck this away and if you come across a piece of Tasha's, I'd love to see it:)

I'm slowly transferring listings from Ruby Lane to Etsy and am so happy to be back "home" after 7 years. I love all of Etsy's bells and whistles and am really enjoying the ease of listing and sharing. I had mentioned this change in the comment section of a post, some time ago, but wanted to do a formal announcement.
My items are currently at whimsicalvintage.rubylane.com and whimsicalvintage.etsy.com . Most of my new listings will go to Etsy but I will leave my Ruby Lane shop open for some of my other items. I used to be a one shop kind of gal, but these days call for diversity. Diversity in venues, sites, social media (as it pertains to actual sales) and payment methods. The easier the better, as far as our customers go. They want one click purchasing and seamless transactions...I can't say that I blame them:).

This is a very nice Small Vintage Red Oxo Cube Tin, dating to the 1970s. It is in fairly good condition with a few scuffs and scratches on each surface, and small loss of paint.
