Harmonious Harmonicas

We’re excited about our latest finds – harmonicas, or chromatic harmonicas to be exact (look up Wikipedia for the lowdown on what this is!). The thought that these vintage pieces, so well loved and played by someone obviously accomplished, would be loved and played once again, makes us happy that we can be a part of this process.

The two main brands we have are Hohner (the world’s foremost manufacturer of harmonicas) and Nippon Gakki (known now as Yamaha). All come in their original packaging and in great condition.

We aim to provide vintage items that are practical as well – we’re not sure about the hairdryers though!

Yes we hear you, it’s difficult to find unique hooks out there (the designer ones are all too expensive!). These are just perfect to add some vintage character to your wall. Did we mention they’re functional too?

We have them mounted in one, twos and threes and unmounted as well.

Vintage hooks

One fixture is actually three hooks, so three of them means nine hooks! Gosh!

Elegant handheld mirror and coat brush

We’re not sure if these hairdryers are working (we recommend not trying them out with your other appliances on!) But lovely shapes, don’t you think?

These teak photoframes have such a lovely nostalgic vibe to them. Imagine them hung in a row, in some old clan association or coffeeshop). The chains that come with them are made of metal links and are extraordinarily long. We have 7 frames available.

Love the bevelled edges.
