Our taste at project vintage is somewhat a little eclectic..its a real pleasure to own these items for a while but equally love to see them going to their new happy owners. it’s a great time to be involved in the antique and vintage business as it’s becoming increasingly popular due to the awareness around sustainability especially with the younger generations. We are lovers of design, lighting, mid-century, salvaged the curious and unique.
