You may have noticed that I am a fan of using vintage objects in new, creative ways. Always on the lookout for inspiration, I love to meander through Etsy shops and stumble upon talented sellers who dazzle me with their upcycled products. Here are a few of my latest discoveries.
Rodger Thomas of Atlanta is a masterful re-purposer who stocks his shop, Benclif Designs, with innovative lighting. Two of my favorites: a percolator lamp (complete with floating coffee cup) and his electric fan table lamp.
Indianian Peggy's shop, Salvage Relics, is chock full of vintage goodness. I particularly like her re-purposed set of faucet handle photo holders, shown above.
Manfred Maiers of Minneapolis offers unique, eco-friendly accent pieces, many of which use vintage cameras. These two, and many others, can be found in his shop called Light and Time Art.
Love this magnetic Air Race Globe, brought to you by Sandy of Michigan's Vintage Homegoods shop.
Ingenious dollhouses, large and small, are crafted from recycled containers (suitcases, match boxes, cigar boxes) by Australian Marisa David. These little works of art can be found in her Suitcase Dollhouse shop.
Last but certainly not least — the whimsical and weird "Air Plant Boy." Brooklyn's Ursula loves to give new life to unexpected beauties. This kinda creepy creation, and many more curiosities, can be viewed in her quirky shop called EarthSeaWarrior.
