Anyone who loves steampunk also falls into the vintage lot. It’s natural. Vintage and retro items just pull me back to a time when things were done by hand. The ornate scroll work and brass give me the warm fuzzies. I even have a board dedicated to this obsession on Pinterest. Then I chanced upon my vintage Valhalla: a blog called Vintage Me Oh My. This site is every retro fan’s dream.
The proprietor of this glorious site is one Megan Cummins, a graphic designer from San Francisco. She calls her site “online crack” for vintage goodness. And I’d have to agree. I just can’t stop scrolling through it.
Traveling through her blog is like a trip through time. You loose yourself in the things that once were.
There’s a melancholy feeling that wells up inside me when I see these images. Some of them are so lonely and forgotten. Yet there’s warmth too.
You may notice that Megan doesn’t photograph these items herself. Instead she finds or solicits stunning pictures from others. She’s a sort of clearinghouse of vintage. Like something, then click over to the original site to view more.
Take a look for yourself and get your vintage fix satisfied.
Fascinating sites! I love vintage anything and have managed to salvage quite a collection of things from my grandparents, most of which have more sentimental value than monetary. I do wish I had saved some of the old bottles that were in the cottage medicine chest, though. I recently found out how collectible they are. Oh, well! Thanks for sharing your interest in vintage. 🙂
