Vintage In Use Part One

Monday, 7 October 2013


Not surprisingly, my house is full of vintage. Much of it is practical stuff that I use almost daily. Some I have picked up from thrift stores and yard sales, some for retail prices from Etsy and eBay.

Stelton coffee thermos designed by Erik Magnussen in 1977.
This has made my mornings so much better. My coffee isn't getting cold and bitter in the french press anymore. Where have you been my whole life?





Sival Unique flatware
Designed by Johan Hagen in 1959 this Danish flatware looks so timeless. I've been buying it up piece by piece and have lucked out occasionally. So far, it's the best looking fork I've ever seen.





Midwinter White plates
I wanted something really simple but solid and cheap. Midwinter ends up in thrift stores quite often and some of the lines are a bit too retro looking for me but the White line is so easy to pair with anything else you might have.

This Rörstrand Koka butter warmer was actually meant for the store until I got home and realized I don't really have anything good to warm butter in when I'm baking. The line was designed by Hertha Bengtson in 1950s and it's more frequently found in white and cobalt blue.

  1. Now that I'm incorporating all of my merchandise back into my home I've been doing a "vintage in use" behind-the-scenes. Really love your honest report on the items. The scary part is breaking valuable vintage finds...

    1. I know what you mean about breakage but it happens and then it's good to keep in mind what you paid for it in the first place and not the potential value. Helps me sleep at night!

    1. Thanks, I love it too! And best of all, because of it's twisted shape, when they fall through the cracks, they only fall halfway in! Tried and tested on the balcony table :D
