Whippet Grey

After I featured the botanical charts from Whippet Grey last week, I had a closer look at their range, and there are some fab, if a tad pricey, items on there.... Most of the items that caught my eye are originals from the 40s and 50s, so I guess a higher price tag is justified due to the rarity....  I just doubt I'll ever be able to afford them!!
Although I do like these vintage American flour sacks from the 40's, I especially want the Carolina one! These are only £18 and you can then source a frame for them yourself....
I would love one of these vintage New York subway blinds, dated from the 50's - I've seen lots of London bus ones around, but not so many of these New York ones.... they come framed and are £295.
They only have a few of these vintage gas station price plates left, these are £75 each! 
Some of my other faves are...
a framed set of vintage veg seed packets from around 1915! I love the graphics and fonts on these... they have  1 framed set for £88, or you could buy a set of 30 for £58 and source your own frame...
French metal oyster baskets, great for storage.... £45
vintage fireworks boxes, would look great on your desk... £48


  1. Have you ever visited Burgundy Brocante (think that's the name) - they have tons of vintage seed labels for SO much less..

  2. The oyster baskets and fireworks boxes would look perfect in my fantasy home. Thanks for the recommendation.

  3. I adore almost everything they have, and I'd probably pay for items frames because otherwise, they just sit there unframed for months until i remember to do it.

  4. Great post! I adore the polka dot feeds one :)

  5. Beautiful selection! Love the fireworks pieces!
