Are you Mod for Color?

Here are a few recent finds just added to the shop.  Let me know which is your favorite.


I hope someone buys the Tampella Wall hanging quick because I am tempted to keep it.  Please help me and buy this!  

Tampella "Curvus" Fabric Wall Hanging

I love the Krenit bowls.  We had a couple around the house growing up.  They are as gorgeous today as they were then.  This one is in a warm, sunny yellow color - just beautiful.

These Rosenthal dishes were the first thing I grabbed at an estate sale.  The house was chock-a-block full of great vintage porcelain.  If you are a fan of Rosenthal/Wiinblad be on notice that I will be posting 5 vases very soon.

I also recently found this Bo-Svensk Swedish candle holder at another estate sale.  I find this piece to be strong, bold and quite manly.  Need I say more?

Here we go!

I've been wanting to set up a blog for my Etsy shop, Hot Cool Vintage, for a while now.  Of course, actually setting up a blog and figuring out blogger at 10 pm on a Monday night is absolutely the way to do it.  Genius, I know.

Who am I?  Why am I doing this?  I'm a thrifter, picker, and early morning riser (when properly motivated with promises of must have vintage) who loves finding treasures.   HCV was started because as I was shopping the estate sales and thrifts for my home I would find things that I had to buy, even if I had no idea what I was going to do with them.  Things like these...

I did not need Arabia egg cups.  I had no place for Arabia egg cups but could I not buy them?  Well, maybe you could resist but I could not.  So I bought them.  Then many months later an ebayer friend came to town and convinced me to do this thing called Etsy.  A monster was created and here I am.

As much as I love finding things I love sharing them too!  I'll be posting pics of recent finds most of which will go into the shop but some will come to live with me.

Want more?  I'm on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.  Join me, follow me, stalk me, whatever.  It'll be fun!
