Hej friends, I have visited some shops that sell second-hand & vintage stuff. There are loads of them here in Sydney & many are impressively well-stocked. It’s a pleasure to stroll around, talk with the shop owner & try to imagine the history behind some of these things. But there are some stores that have ridiculously high prices too. They ride well on the wave, I guess, which means that they charge as much as they can, as long as it lasts. My youngest sone came home with a two stools. He found them on his way to school. This is unusual in Sweden maybe in parts of Europe too – but here in Australia, people gather their stuff in a pile beside the sidewalk twice a year during a few weeks. The garbage guys will thereafter pass to pick this up, for waste management. This has become pure business for some. They go by in small trucks & sort quickly through that they can make money on. Good on them, it’s good for the environment. Anyway, these high stools in black that he found looks great & it seems like Axel has made this to his thing. This is the third time he comes home with stools & low pallets. I hope he continues because they are gorgeous:) Theres nothing as beautiful as old worn furniture in a modern place. The contrast is so strong & inviting. Some of the newly produced items are so well done that it’s almost impossible to see wether they are old or not.
The jug is new produced & I guess the accessories on the table are the same, except the table but what do I know / Hus & hem,
This is probably the most genuine & authentic. I want to believe it anyway. Just check out the headboard in velvet.
Take care / Marie
