What are some fun vintage items that we can use for wedding reception centerpieces?

We're having a vintage-themed wedding this next summer and we're looking for cool items to use as centerpieces. So far, we're thinking of using: old books, candlestick phones, old maps, gas lanterns, bottles, pens, suitcases, maybe some boxes, telescopes... Does anyone have any really good ideas? Our colors are going to be largely black, white, and navy blue, with bright yellow as a fun accent color (especially in the summer). Brown will probably also be an incidental color if we use a lot of these items, but we're not too worried about that, haha. We also really want to use the aesthetic of movie posters or magic shows, which could be really fun, and maybe some items could fit into that. Does anyone have any good ideas?

Details:

  1. Old board games Old appliances painted in your wedding colors
  2. Mason jars with some wild flowers, Since your wanting yellow black eye sSusan'swould look nice. I would suggest maybe going to goodwill or an antique store. You can find alAlotf old things for a decent price.
  3. Skip the mason jars - way over done. Think about purses, teacups, mixing bowls and vintage wooden crates: http://www.etsy.com/listing/114857132/vintage-wood-crate-box-sunkist?ref=sr_gallery_9&ga_search_query=crates&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_ship_to=US&ga_vintage_rewrite=vintage+crates&ga_original_query=2&ga_search_type=all
