Cul-de-sac Shack is dedicated to all things mid-century. From my house, to interesting things I find, all will be shared here!
Follow along as I restore my small Ranch House to it's 1958 glory!

Out of the things that I'm sharing today, I think this is my favorite. It's an Electrolux Model G. Turquoise! It's turquoise! It has several attachments with it, but unfortunately not carpet head. Oh well. It works well (I used it to vacuum the dog hair off the couch...my dog sneaks up on it when I forget to cover it). I am amazed at how quiet this machine is. It's little more than a hum when it's on. Turns out, it's a model that Electrolux collectors seem to seek. Who would have thought, a collector of vacuums. I guess there really is a collector for everything! I picked it up because my grandma used to have an Electrolux (although it was newer than this). Not a bad deal for $4. I picked it up at the same estate auction that I got my red Ericofon, which I shared last Monday.
Next, I recently thrifted a pair of these glasses. Does anybody know anything about who made them or what the pattern is called? I call them Early American, because the pattern makes me think of the Pyrex Early American pattern. Two glasses for $1.
Lastly, a Thermos lunch box. Yes, it is plastic, but it has some years on it. I'd guess it's from the 1960s, if I had to make a guess. Too bad it didn't have a Thermos in it!
Hope you all have a great Monday! Anybody get any great finds over the weekend?
