Show me your Gimcrack

Post by naughtyjedi on Mon Oct 09, 2017 6:41 am

Hi there all. Its Pete from the Vintage Rebellion Podcast.

I'm after submissions for this months gimcracker
All I'm after is an item you have seen, or bought, that surfaced over the last month that falls into the reasonably undefined category of 'gimcrack'. Something that isn't the usual figure, cardback, ship, kinda thing. We'll discuss it on the podcast (or you can Skype with me and put the case over) and I'll award my favourite a lovely badge (which I am still making but its coming, honest!!!).

Last month the winner was a Princess Kneesa care bag. Yes.. thats gimcrack.

welcome  on board Pete.  I'm surprised that you weren't already signed up.  I'm also really glad you started this thread here.cheers   That way, I don't have to create a facebook account. cheeky

I've only gotten a few new gimcrack pieces in the last few months.  But I can't really say that they are "undefined".  They are mostly Canadian items.  The French ESB storybook that is printed in France, may also be the one distributed in our French speaking province of Quebec.  I've seen one for sale recently from Quebec, that has the same "printed in France" stamp in the back of it.  But still needs to be verified.

The French ESB storybook.

Where can we see all the entries? I looked at TVR facebook page and didn't see anything?

Jez, did you find that lampshade from your childhood, because that might win? cheeky

Pete, I moved this thread to the main discussion area. It deserves more attention.

Here is a neat little piece that I picked up a few weeks ago.

French Canadian Cobot pin back button / badge.

Not vintage, but vintagesque.  Some nice hand made cork drink coasters.
The coasters work great. nanny
