I love me some local talent, Creatives (you know that), and since moving to Melbourne a few months back I’ve slowly been immersing myself in all of the homewares and furniture goodness down here – and boy does Melbs know how to rock design. Sorry Sydney.
If you’re not from down south (or just love shopping online), you’re going to feel particularly drawn to new vintage furniture and decor emporium Kitsch Please; a dedicated and curated online marketplace for all things old-school.
The man behind the brand, Melbourne interior stylist Samuel Clarke, says that the site operates much like an Etsy, eBay or a Gumtree, except that all of the products are vintage and there’s a large focus on the sustainability of shopping pre-loved wares.
“Buying timeless, pre-loved vintage items is better for the environment,” says Clarke, “Kitsch Please aims to provide an alternative to buying disposable, seasonal furniture and homewares by bringing the best vintage together in one place, for convenient and accessible online shopping”.
Samuel is one talented cookie. With a background in fashion and interior styling, he’ll also be using Kitsch Please to sell his own collection. And as a big supporter of Aussie talent (and Melbournites since I moved here), I couldn’t be happier.
“You’ll see some of my own vintage homewares and furniture for sale, but Kitsch Please is about being a marketplace for everyone to easily buy and sell vintage in good company”.
