Artist of the week – Michael Lombardi

Hi all! I wanted to introduce you all to a wonderfully talented artist from Perth, Australia who is now based in Melbourne. Michael Lombardi has an amazing retro/vintage style that I adore. His work is unique and diverse and he captures situations beautifully as portraits, murals, logos and posters. Anyone who loves vintage style will appreciate his wonderful illustrations. From 1920s flapper gals and 50s astro-babes to 1960s G0-Go dancers, there is nothing he can’t bring to life with his quirky style.

His artwork is available online for purchase and he also does commissions, as you can see from the various swing dance logos, portraits, animation and murals he has done. If you would like to buy any of his work, please go to this link or his Etsy shop and if you would to commission him to do some work for you, you can contact him via his website at www.michaellombardi.com.au

Dorothea’s Closet – 50% off sale !

One of my favourite online vintage stores, Dorothea’s Closet, is having a sale out of necessity. She has some amazing stock so maybe you can help her out and pick up some great vintage at the same time.

From Angela: Owner or Dorothea’s closet:

“OK, I got some bad news (in the form of foreclosure) in the mail just now, so I’m doing a website wide 50% sale. That’s over 1,500 vintage items! Dresses, gowns, hats, lingerie, skirts, blouses, handbags, shoes, jewelry & scarves ranging from Victorian to 1980s. I just need to drum up enough to get them off my back and catch up (once you get behind and other bills gobsmack you, it all goes to shite quickly). So help a gal out and get some cheap (but not cheaply made!) vintage and help me and my family stay in our home!

Code to use at checkout is LOVE50. I’m happy to work out shipping cheaper if I can, just PM me or email through the site. So that’s 50% off ALL OF IT. Thanks for looking!”

Vintage Christmas and New Year Cards

Some of these are amazing and truly capture the Art Deco feel of the time. Others are just plain cute or caught my eye due to their catchy design and imagery.
