Genuine Scandinavian Vintage for Sale at yay retro!
It seems that 1960 and 70s inspired patterns are being made available everywhere by today's modern designers. Look in any supermarket, department store or gift shop and you can see the effects of our love affair with mid century pattern and colour. Collectors of vintage have known about the phenomenon that is 'all things Scandi' for many years, and seek out the 'real thing' when it comes to buying kitchen and homewares. At yay retro! we keep an eye out for Figgjo Flint & Porsgrund tableware from Norway, Arabia and Finel products from Finland and Luthje products from Denmark. Although these look 'new' they are actually 50+ years old!
Made back in the day when quality was key, these products have been made to last, and so they have! If like me you adore Scandinavian mid century design, why not pop in to yay retro! now? Use the search box to find the maker you are looking for. Here are a few tasters of our current availability which includes Clupea from Figgjo Flint and a stunning sought after Arabia Finland enamel teapot kettle designed by Kaj Franck.
We also have pieces designed by Kaarina Aho and Esteri Tomula. Many people love to add a Dala horse or two to their Scandi collection, we currently have 3 available from 10 inches tall :O) Don't forget, we can combine postage for you, and our stock changes from week to week according to what has been found and what has been sold, so it really is worth checking the yay retro! online vintage shop regularly.
