Vintage - Always in Vogue!

“Who lives without remembering the past – lives without the future” (Estonian poet J. Liiv)

Everything vintage has become increasingly popular these days. Nothing surprising in that – vintage designs are just awesome! Some of the devoted admirerers enjoy owning a rarity, some are holding items with sentimental value. Others are excited about decorating homes for vintage atmosphere or hunting an enlargement for their collections.

It is not always easy to find pieces that really work in your collection or your home. Here is the key: be creative, be passionate and look “out of the frames”. Hunt for items that you consider magnificent. That´s it :)

My childhood passed by in Soviet era Estonia on the 80s and I grew up with admiration and esteem to “oldies”. In fact, gathering and preserving things was the way of life on that controversial time. This was due deficiency of almost everything. For decades.

My collector model was my Mom – her sets of vintage dishes were just divine. My own first collections consisted candy papers and food labels, interesting stones, beer tins, rings, children`s magazines, my kindergarten drawings. Now, my pride and joy is the fascinating silver flatware, and the set of white Bavarian dishes from 1930s, as well as the collections of Soviet era items. My husband is a collector of music, films and vintage books – his knowledge and gatherings are imposing. My father-in-law is an owner of one of the greatest jazz music collections in Estonia. He is also a genealogist, compiling capacious books about our provenance and being a holder of family´s antique keepsakes. His oldest treasure is the silver thaler of the Grand Duke Christian I of the Saxony, from 1588, also known as Rix Dollar.

Having a degree in Estonian History I am happy to share my addiction for past times and provide knowledge, entertainment and inspiration for people interested in vintage.

That was the main reason for opening a shop here - I thought how great it would be to share my love to vintage and history with the surprisingly huge Etsy community. Simple things like someone admiring my shop or items, positive message or feedback from Etsy members and buyers just make my day. Not to mention a great feeling when someone likes my item so much to purchase it. Plus - my skills in English, taking photos and picking items are improved much over time, I have learned so many new things for what I am very thankful to Etsy environment. So, it has been a great pleasure so far :)

Wishing you a wonderful vintage experience,
