Hippo Hardware







After a morning of successful vintage hunting in Portland Twila Jean and I stopped by Hippo Hardware, a big old building filled with vintage and antique fixtures and appliances. The light fixture room is floor to ceiling vintage light fixtures, and as soon as you say "Oooh! I want that one!" you see another you want too. And then another and another...

Those are just lovely!

Obviously you're into vintage fashion, but is that your decorating theme as well?

what a dream! I have actually been looking for some new light fixtures for around my apartment, but the only spot I've found is thisr eally expensive antique store! :(
or flea markets that require hours of searching and have not yet yielded any results for me!

the lighting part of home depot was always my favorite part of the store. when i was little, it reminded me of one of the final scenes in "return to oz" when the emerald city is all lit up and glittery.

i need a new lamp in my apartment. now i'm inspired to go hunting again!

Revolving Styles, that is actually Twila Jean, she thrifted them.

Feathergirl, I have mostly vintage furniture and decor, 20s-60s.
