Wow, packed so well it took me about 5 minutes to break into and cut open packaging. Perfect little owl, I love him! Better than described. Super fast shipping, wonderful shop owners. Thank you! !

I love this tea set and it was packaged wonderfully, I was a little disappointed that the teapot lid wasn't a original one to the set. It was reasonably priced and great condition so it will make a great addition to my atomic teapot collection.

Vintage Adoption Agency

Kultur is the word for 'culture' in German and most Scandinavian languages. This shop examines the treasures of culture past. The goodies that are special enough to make us smile or even grin are presented here. Sometimes it almost feels like we are an adoption agency finding new homes for orphaned vintage items.

Kultur is the Etsy shop of two European transplants to California’s Central Coast. One is a finder and describer, the other is the shipper when not functioning as a feeder of beasties.

About us: Nature lovers. Star gazers. Sushi addicts. World citizens. Animal fanatics. Cat-food-can openers. Dog walkers. Die-hard bibliophiles. History buffs. Trend watchers. Day dreamers. Pinky & the Brain.

"'I am a Thing-Finder, and when you're a Thing-Finder, you don't have a minute to spare." - Astrid Lindgren in Pippi Longstocking

Our home is smoke-free, but it does contain two happy pups. >^..^< Our furry friends are not allowed to come into direct contact with the items.
