I love vintage ephemera, great to look at for the typography, colours and style. Plus the textures from years of wear and tear. I’ve picked the Colman’s Mustard tin as the top image because im living in Norwich, the home of Colman’s! What great packaging, I see a few vintage mustard things around and they have such a strong style and colour scheme, really timeless.
These images are from a blog post called Badge Hunting on Allan Peters blog, a nice blog I came across recently. Think its much easier to find great ephemera over in America. I started watching a show called American Pickers recently as my girlfriends dad likes it, and in that two guys travel round buying American antiques. They get lots of cool ephemera, especially signs, and It seems much easier to buy in America than England. But that said hopefully il find some nice vintage bits and pieces to post on here, I should have gone to the weekly flea market today!
