Announcement   Ateliernostalgi - Antique, Vintage Finds. Handmade & Supplies to Inspire.
Collecting wherever I go... I was recently in France during the Summer. This is when the locals, clean out their apartments, houses and attics, to sell at open air community markets. I came home with boxes of vintage smalls and will offer many here. My handmade items are made from my studio in the mountains, Victoria Australia.

My found objects and things are the inspiration and starting point for most of my artwork and ideas. When I see something, it can trigger off an instant idea and give me a vision to work with. I hope my vintage supplies will inspire you to do the same and create something you love!

I now accept Direct Checkout in my shop.
Buyers can now pay you with credit and debit cards, Etsy gift cards.

I am also a visual artist and run my arts practice from a studio, in Melbourne Australia and from a petite studio in Paris, France. Please see more at my ABOUT page https://www.etsy.com/shop/Nostalgi/about/

A bit more about my life!
Collecting can become so addictive, especially for an artist. My found objects and things are the inspiration and starting point for most of my artwork and ideas. When I see something, it can trigger off an instant idea and give me a vision to work with. I think this is why I love museums, as display and arranging objects are an important part of my sculpture and photography work.

I have been collecting since I was born. I used to hide stuff under my bed in boxes as a child. As an adult, I’m still putting stuff into boxes, plastic bags and other strange things. I view my collections as arrangements. They are all art installations scattered around my place, as well as, material for use in my arts projects

Walking through the streets to the local shop I always come home with something foot trodden. A piece of paper, packaging, a bright piece of plastic, glass all, will be used in my art, eventually.

When I travel overseas I pick up off the ground, bottle tops, lolly papers, wires bright bits of plastic, even if an item might disturb me, I’ll bring it home. On a tour once, in Europe the whole busload of passengers collected bottle tops for me.

My stuff may brood for years in a dark space or cupboard, till I come across it again, sending me off on another project.

I collect found photographs, as they tell a story about people and places I’ll never know about, so, I make up my own stories.

I collect, scientific stuff, equations, wire, tin, bones, animal skeletons, fur, hair, watches, old mobile covers, eye glasses, shriveled things, found numbers and fonts from keyboards, magazines and advertising, boxes, packaging, all sorts paper, vintage clothes, fabrics, wall papers,shells, driftwood, snow-globes, toys, children’s books and so much more

I go to op shops, cities, airports underground spaces, beaches, garage sales, friends houses and sometimes, find stuff on EBay, though, part of the fun and attraction for me is, the actual finding of an object or material that is discarded and thrown away, so I to recycle and renew it into something else or, just show its beauty, as it is.

Collections of stuff are also extremely important for future generations too. 100’s of years from now, someone may come across a piece of fabric, wallpaper ,lolly paper, box ,bone etc that will give them information on how we lived in our time, in our place.

Collections are also portraits of those who love to glean…..
