These vintage beauties were all made by Simon, a designer in Cape Town. Talk about a knack for vintage styling. The first image is of a wine label, and I thought it was an actual vintage piece he just posted for inspiration. Hats off to ya Mr.Simon. Check out his Dribbble page here.

Remember me bugging you guys about my start-up when I was on Kickstarter? Well, crazy things have been happening with my new little company. This coming Friday, February 3rd at 8pm, I’ll be on ABC & Sony Picture’s “Shark Tank” pitching my company, You Smell, to the sharks.
lol..Can you imagine how they’re going to respond? I want to tell you guys so bad about what all happened! Please watch the show :)
P.S. We’re officially launching on Friday, but the site is up and ready for pre-orders. If you want anything from our first batch, go to the website before the rush on Friday! www.yousmellsoap.com
This is actually a re-make of a vintage Crayola crayon package that Holli found at a Cracker Barrel for $2.50. I never would have guessed there was something I’d want to buy deep in the mounds of knick-knacks in their gift shops.
This fancy tin once held a puff for dusting off your car’s interior and your furniture. Perhaps it was excessive packaging for a duster, but I can’t fault them when it’s this snazzy looking. This particular tin is actually for sale on Etsy by The Fancy Lamb for $62. Follow the link to see their other pics.
I came across this snazzy tin when I was browsing around a blog called Leader Of Men.
“It was made by the M.W. Dunton Company in Providence, Rhode Island, probably in the 1920s. M.W. Dunton was in business for nearly 100 years before being purchased and absorbed by Rectorseal in 1998. More info on M.W. Dunton is available here.”
For the last day of Christmas, I’m giving away a pack of different vintage labels from my collection. I hand picked each of these, so there’s no filler junk in it- it’s all gorgeous! :)
Just answer the question and you’ll be entered to win the pack!
How do you use vintage graphics? (Do you draw inspiration from them? Use them in your artwork? Pull flourishes or type from them?)
