Printable Wall Art from Etsy Shop

This great leaf print is only $5.01 and would look great in any room!

Her work is whimsical and some has a simplistic minimalist Mid Century Modern flair.  She started her career by studying Art at the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design . Serving three years as a journalist at the Haaretz newspaper, she came up with her own style column.  Her art has been featured in shows including the Amos Schoken art collection.  You can clearly see her  love for drawing and painting in these works.  The inspiration stems from early experiences with her mother sketching still-life compositions together.

Mid Century Modern Wall Art

Mid Century Modern Combination only $8.90

Our favorite designs are the ones that are modernistic, and would look great in a retro home.   The ones above are modern enough for today’s decor, but reminiscent of the 1950’s or 1960’s.    Ilanit finds Etsy’s download system works well for her designs. What a wonderful idea to think she may be enjoying her coffee in Tel Aviv while working on her laptop, creating new designs for anyone anywhere in the world!  New creations are added often,  and prices are so affordable.  The shop has many good reviews and customers are happy with her work!

70’s Kitchen Redo on a Dime NCLVintage

1970s Mugs

Retro coffee mugs keep you warm in the winter at NCLVintage!  Cost: $14.16

70’s Kitchen Redo on a Dime NCLVintage

Modern kitchens are getting a wayback fix, by adorning them with vintage kitchen objects that are cute, functional and won’t break the bank. This “on a dime” budget if you will means looking for the best deals so you can afford more items for less. We’ve found the perfect shop on Etsy NCLVintage that has a wide array of retro items for your kitchen and your home.  Now you can get the same type kitchen gadgets you saw on “That 70’s Show!”  Items are affordable and shipping is fair!  Here are some of our favorite things, courtesy of shop owner  Nicole Rohloff from Gaithersburg, Maryland, who we had a conversation with….

Us:   When did you start selling vintage?

Nicole:  In 2014!

Above, we have the funky retro ceramic coffee mugs that Moms used to put soups in, hot chocolate and Spaghettios. Yes, less is more.  Having a smaller cup cuts your portions down and taking your time to eat will fill you up.

Vintage Tumblers Glastic Texas Ware

Gorgeous Flower “GLASTIC” glasses are plastic, this set $16.36

Above,  those frosted plastic glasses you won’t be scared to drop, as they are GLASTIC, plastic that looks like glass. Quite possibly made by TexasWare or another manufacturer late in the 70’s to gussy up your kitchen.  Although the majority of Texas Ware was made circa 1950-1960, and mostly melmac , the company went until the 80’s making both consumer and restaurant plastics.  These type of glasses you’ll still find them at all you can eat restaurants today, (made by Carlisle plastics) but not as pretty as these with the retro flowers.

Us: What your favorite vintage items are or what you collect?

Nicole: I am obsessed with mid-century coffee mugs and old books.

Lucite Napkin Holder

We love this lucite napkin holder for only $14.63!

Above: This adorable vintage Lucite Napkin holder will survive for years and is in a retro sunflower motif, great for holding your napkins in the kitchen and giving you a sunshiney smile!

Us:  What is the one thing your shop tries to convey to people?

Nicole:  Want to help the environment? Buy vintage! This is another reason I love selling vintage items; it’s one less thing that will end up in a land fill somewhere.

Below: Must have Corelle pieces in your kitchen!  This “shatterproof” dinnerware was in everyone’s home. It survived the microwave, stove top and oven. Just what is that made of? They won’t tell…

Corelle Petit Pan

Corelle is stocked in the store, and a big staple of the 70’s. This pan is only $6.09 due to minor imperfection.

Below: One must also have trivets.  Yes, cast iron trivets have been a long time retro housewife’s dream.  Some were made in the USA but most were made in Japan !  No secret the Japanese are technologically smart, they are also design-saavy. For they came up with the idea to just switch out the center tile and change with the times. How cool is that?

Vintage Trivet

This trivet is a staple of vintage kitchens! Holds your hot pots or messy spoons! Only $10.47!

Now in order to have the best vintage kitchen, you also have to play the part.  Below: Remember that most people took their lunches to school and work, so below you have the best vintage thermos set to start your special someone’s day with hot coffee or soup!

Vintage Thermos Set, jump back to the 70’s for only $19.94

Us:  Anything currently in your shop with a great story?

Nicole: Last year at a vintage sale, I found an amazing Vintage Decoupage Collage Wine Bottle that’s truly unique. I’ve never seen anything like it so it’s a really special piece.

Of course she’s talking about this wine bottle as shown Below! (Nothing like some 70’s handicraft to decorate up your kitchen!  )  Talk about outsider art….

Decoupage Outsider Art

70’s Homemade Decoupage Wine Bottle Nicole says it’s OOAK and that we must agree. Cost: $23.34.

Us: What item will you hate to see go and why?

Nicole: My favorite item is this retro whale mug that I picked up at a thrift shop. I will be sad to let it go but I can’t keep up with all the coffee mugs I own.

We’re happy to tell you you can apply the 50’s 60’s or any theme to your kitchen in Nicole’s shop because she has a wide array of housewares and vintage goodies.

Versace can play design both ways. Their usual gold-lion-classic fancy Italian designs in the catalogue still exist. These are sleek but simple modern design but good luck finding them.  These lamps are in boutiques in Italy and Switerland but finding them in the states may be a bit more difficult. There are ten Versace stores in the US, a list of them are here.  These items aren’t in their online store catalog, but you can find out more on their  Versace website.
