Announcing my 1950's repro coffee mugs today!

Thursday, December 13, 2012

 Living one block away from the Missouri river, I feel the chill in the air sooner than I did when I lived in the suburbs. Although it's colder in this part of town, I love to bundle up in my vintage coat and boots and go for a walk through the neighborhood or along the river bank, and sometimes just rock on the porch in my little retro glider, with a cup of cocoa or hot cider. There's an old school house across the street and the chimney smokes in the morning when they have the furnace on full blast. 



Just listed in the shop today are my brand new vintage inspired coffee mugs- featuring original vintage china and pyrex patterns from my personal collection.


                                  Available in 8 original vintage designs to match your retro kitchen decor

Starbursts

Franciscan
My parents have been selling these ceramic mugs for several years and their customers rave about how well they heat in the microwave without the handle getting hot. They are dishwasher safe so the fabulous retro designs will never chip or wear off.

Northstar



Choose one mug, a matching set or mix and match only at Va-Voom Vintage Shop

  2. I would love to have one of those. I think that coffee would taste much better from those cups.

  4. How thoroughly awesome, you creative chick, you! I especially love the Franciscan, as I have a small platter I bought at a yard sale last spring with that same atomic star burst pattern on it.

  7. Adorable! What a great idea! I love those designs, but you usually only see them in low, small, coffee cups - not nice mugs like I'm used to! I'm putting these on my list of "wishes."
