I’m a sucker for a nice vintage find, so when I came across this fabulous Etsy page, where every item wins your heart I knew I had to let the world know.
So browse around and fall in love with suitcases, plates, cameras and do as I did, and choose wisely and fill your home with the warm feeling “old” brings.
Remember being 14, saving your allowance and asking your mom to drive you to Rite Aid to buy the latest issue of Tiger Beat? Well, I do. I was the ultimate late-90s-boyband-adoring teenage girl once, as I’m sure most of you were at some point (maybe not obsessed with the Backstreet Boys, but you get it). My favorite articles, aside from the ones where Nick Carter talked about his favorite color, were the ones where girls would submit pictures of their bedrooms/shrines. I was so inspired by the collection of posters on my fellow teenie boppers’ walls, I wanted to be able to express my (fourteen year old version of) love for these boys and their music just like they did. Unfortunately, I had a stubborn mother who was incredibly concerned about the nature of the lilac paint that adorned my bedroom walls and would under no circumstances let me tape the life size poster of my boyfriend next to my bed. Ugh! It was SOO unfair!
In the heart of Mexico City we can find an old building with a lot of history and a lot of cool. Finished in the XVIIIth century this old house now is the home of MUMEDI (Museo Mexicano del Diseño – Mexican Musem of Design), with collections of the most avant garde mexican designers. You can also find design workshops, exhibits, a very chic cafeteria and a small boutique hotel.
They have a small MUMEDISHOP with what is considered Mexico’s biggest specialized bookstore in photography, fashion, design and advertising books, a collection of jewerly, design objects and crafts.
