My love affair with vintage objects began when I was a young kid in the Midwest. I was always searching out “old” pieces to add to collections I started. Funny, it has never stopped. It has been a life long activity that brings me tremendous joy. Searching for vintage goods for Watson Kennedy is an ongoing task that occurs almost daily. I read an article ages ago about the antiques dealer/design guru John Rosselli in New York. In it he said that he bought something for his stores every day. At the time, I was just beginning my retail life, and that seemed like such a distant dream but a goal had been set. I now feel so lucky to be able add vintage goods to our assortment on almost a daily basis. It is a task I relish. Here is what caught my eye yesterday of recent finds.
I go weak in the knees for stellar vintage cutlery. They just look so cool set out on a table. The knives make great little host/hostess gifts tied around a jar of jam or tied onto a cello bag with a piece of cheese. The possibilities are endless. Insert smiling face.
Happy Beaujolais Nouveau day to all!
