These vintage bookends combine art and utility to forge a wonderfully modern home accessory. The pair of thinking man sculptures have been set on a heavy metal base so that they can be used as handsome bookends. We've elevated their uniqueness by upcycling them in bright turquoise blue.

Adds a touch of retro cool on your shelf or mantle, or will warm up a drab office space in an instant. Would make a perfect gift for all those book lovers in your life.

nashpop began when two friends, Sara + Evey, found themselves living in the same city again. Both are addicted to thrift shopping, full of creative energy and oh so artistically inclined. They decided to join forces and thrift unique + rejected housewares. You know, those cheesy cat ceramics and fugly picture frames. The misfits are hand-painted in fresh pop colors, and reborn as one of a kind home decor.

Please feel free to convo us about custom paint jobs, item requests and any other pop dreams you may have.

Our items are handpicked and rescued from local Nashville thrift shops. They are structurally sound, and in good thrifted condition. Every item is lovingly hand painted, and therefore may contain small imperfections. None of our items are meant to eat or drink out of.
