Finding a good spot for all my vintage holiday finds hasn't been an easy task. I never thought I'd say this but I'm actually running out of space and seriously need to slow down the thrifting activities.Good thing then my finances are at an all time low. So today, instead of roaming the weekly fleamarkets, I'm staying home fussing over the kitchen shelves, dusting and cleaning and generally redecorating.
This is what I came up with.
Can you spot the latest additions ?
On the top shelf, a Figgjo Flint serving dish with Market decor. My favourite pattern from Figgjo Flint, designed by Turid "Turi" Gramstad Oliver.
And a famous "Homemaker" plate, designed in 1956-7 by Enid Seeney (pattern) and Tom Arnold (shape) for Ridgway Potteries and sold to the masses by Woolworth between 1957–68.
Now this, I've been lusting after for years, stalking ebay and etsy, only to be dejected by either the high selling prices or outrageous shipping fees. Seriously, why does anything coming from the US or Canada always ship at 40$ ?
The growing Scandinavian collection. Finel, Figgjo Flint and Arabia.
Now getting back to my earlier topic of making some much needed room for new acquisitions. I'm currently selling some lovely vintage items on ebay. So, if you're keen on bidding on a classic Eames chair, stylish Tomado shelves or fabulous retro accessories, head over here.
If you ask nicely I might even be willing to ship.
