About

What's it all about, Alfie?

I started selling vintage kitchen stuff at various flea markets and pop-up shops in Portland, Oregon in 2011 and decided to open a storefront both in the virtual world and in the real world. I then moved to Philadelphia, PA in 2016 and have continued to build the business. Everything I offer is available to view by appointment at my design studio in the Melrose Park area.

I've always had a love for the simplicity all things vintage, especially from the heyday of the Mid-Century Modern design period. The old saying "They don't make 'em like they used to" is true. Nowadays, many objects are made overseas without consideration beyond cost. Craft comes second, unlike the "old days". People don't always know about the designers and craftsfolk who created iconic objects for the home, and I view my store as a chance to learn, educate customers about objects and artistsans from the past.

I love colorful dishes, plates, glasses and tableware! My shop is full of utilitarian and beautiful items for your cupboards, shelves, countertops, dining room table or picnic table. Hopefully you will see something that strikes your fancy which would look wonderful in your kitchen or on your dining room table.
