– get your friends to type their greetings on a typewriter

– use a vintage cosmetic case to store your ang pows.

Telephone accessories

When we say phone accessories in the vintage context, we mean handset holders and phone list finders, not mobile phone cases or screen protectors 🙂 Those born in the seventies and earlier will probably have used these before. The handset holder plays the theme from Romeo & Juliet  when activated. Lovely!

All Bottled Up

Our favourite find this week has got to be the green vintage Givaudan glass perfume bottles. A famous Swiss fragrance company which traces its roots back to 1796(!!), the bottles still have perfume in them! They have an office in Singapore too! Anyone from Givaduan out there? 🙂

We love old glass bottles, and these will make a fine pairing next to vintage amber, cobalt blue and clear ones. Turn them (or any bottle) into oil/kerosene lamps with these wicks we just got in, made from cotton and recycled metal.

Global Table

Buying items from all over the world is common and easy today, but in the past, owning something from the other side of the world must have gotten one huge bragging rights.

So it kinda romantic to think of how they came to Singapore, and why.

Clay containers from Amsterdam. Used to store liquor. These were probably used on a ship.

Porthole art

Ever wondered what you might do with a porthole at home? We saw a great example at Xtra Design – use it as a frame!

Have any ideas for our porthole? It’s perfectly sized and solid brass.

This one’s an aluminum alloy,  and larger.

How about setting it in a door?

Material of the moment – copper

If there is one material that will make your home feel all warm and Christmassy, it’s copper. Cooks also use copper pots because it has great heat-conductivity. And of course, they look so elegant in any kitchen!

Here are our copper kitchenware
