Check out Ebay Germany.  Tons of outstanding, old-school Scandinavian housewares.  I just scored this 1960’s teak candelabra for under $15 including shipping from Europe!  Some other beautiful items still up for auction, too…like this teak cheese board.

Good luck if you go bidding.  While you’re surfing, visit modhaus as well.  I picked up this set of 1960’s vintage Japanese flatware.  Lookie!  A sugar spoon and two butter spreaders.

The service puts me in the mind of Nanny Still’s cool “mango” pattern for iittala from 1971, which is still in production and available at finnishgifts.

I digress… back to Modhaus.  An art deco roasting pan! I’ve never seen anything like this.  Maybe I’ve been too sheltered.  It’s pretty enough to bring to the table.  Also up for grabs is a very pretty teak waste bin.  Modhaus is in Boston.  Shipping is reasonable and free business to business.

What if you don’t win that auction for that set of four “sea and sand” salad plates on ebay?  You can hit Laguna Vintage Pottery, a Seattle retailer with a wide online selection of discontinued and vintage color combos in Heath Ceramics tableware.

These salt and pepper shakers in the “brown and white” glaze were discontinued in the 1970’s.  And, these “mahogany” glaze cruets stopped production in the 1960’s.
