IMG_1886Crosley is where old school meets new school and vintage never sounded better.

My Crosley 1950s Coloradio Replica Old Time Radio hit my “Find of the Week” area last week. It is rare but sometimes I like replica’s or vintage inspired items.

This replica retails for $115.00CAD. Some of the painted and flashy ones (1950s Painted Bakelite Tabletop Tube Radio) go for $299.00+. I have seen a ton of people fix them up and not a ton of originals for sale. Even the replicas have been discontinued.

The two radios I have in my home right now are actually nothing too old or authentic- but I love them because of there great sound and looks.

Crosley’s humble start began in the 1920’s with low end radios. They quickly moved into household appliances then tumbled (gracefully) to TV’s.

An exciting jump to vintage inspired electronics and jukeboxes was next. To top it off in the 2000’s they introduced some CD players and records playing machines. What a legacy! Who knows what they will come up with next. All I know is this radio find is a little piece of heaven in my household and I am starting to learn all about radios.

Come back soon for my post, Radios are all the rage where I will not miss a beat in the world of antique radios. You will discover all the “ins” and “outs” of the life changing radio over the years circa 1900’s onwards.

Music catches my heart! Have a great Wild Wednesday “or hump day.”
