Here I am, fan of pottery. Handmade or machine made, vintage or brand spankin’ new, oldschool or contemporary, I love it all.
Clare Dubina found a fabulous way to mix it all together in a show stopping result: upcycling vintage stoneware into new modern vessels. I AM IN LOVE WITH THESE. Know it. lol :)
Boots N Gus takes vintage to a whole new level by pairing it with recycling and reusing.
Those beautiful vintage plates and kitchenware can have a new life in the form of lighting: brilliant way to upcycle! Also, bird feeders and hanging planters. Lovin’ it all!
This weekend, I went to a local (huge) interior flea market, and totally fell in love with this teak box. Turns out, seller was stubborn about price, so I left it there.
Since, I’ve been dreaming of vintage teak. Obviously, vintage teak furniture is not always as easy to find (and not as easy to handle for the wallet…), but you can still find your fix in smaller, more affordable, objects.
A quick search on Etsy had me find these awesome items… And I might just be crazy for showing them to you guys instead of buying them right now. Oh well! :)
Click on the photos to be taken to the shops selling these gems!
I have a love of the vintage. But I don’t have the tools (nor the skills) to modify and repurpose some. Yet, anyway.
Over at Ndustries (Toronto), Nigel does just that, and beautifully! As of now, he concentrate on lighting and stools/magazine racks, but oh, you can just feel the possibilities his talent has for so much more too! I will def be checking this shop often! ;)
Need a shop to stalk for awesome, cool and did I say awesome (!?) vintage home finds? If you don’t know Hindsvik yet, where the heck have you been?!
I always want everything there, and the shop is updated with new stock very often! Every piece is like a treasure, and you can clearly see they choose everything carefully with love and care over there!
Also, for Quebec and Ontario fans, note that there is a free shipping promotion in September for you for orders over $100! YAY!
Now, go crazy ;)
You might already know from here that one of my fave blogs is Knack.
Therefore, I love the Barb’s work, which you can see at her store in Greenville, South Carolina, or if you live far far away like myself, in her Etsy shop!
She refurbishes old furniture to make it modern again, but also keeping that vintage flair we all like. LOVE her color choices too, just wonderful and would suit just about any home! Wouldn’t you just adopt like, everything???
Also check out her portfolio, right here on Flickr! To die for! ;)
A new stop for vintage has arrived!
It’s called Market Publique and it’s for all the vintage clothes lovers out there!
Sorta like an eBay (in the way of bids) and sorta like an Etsy (in being specialized), you can shop and sell your vintage fashion goodness! GO!
