Vintage bottle caps.

May 23, 2012

This is Gail Anderson’s vintage bottle cap collection. Damn it, why can’t things still be made like this? I meant it’s the smallest thing, but so much effort and consideration has been put into them to make them unique and rad. Gail, if I knew you, I would force you to let me ‘make it rain’ with these babies.

While I was looking around for some more hi-res pictures of these guys, I came across a embroidery project by Jennifer Sims. She used some of Gail’s bottle cap collection and embroidered bigger versions of them. I like them, I do.

Back in the day.

Saw the beautiful chocolate box up top today on this site, then I looked around a little more and found these other vintage packages. In the old days there was such attention to detail and so much craftsmanship that went into things. Not so much anymore. Can you imagine being confronted by such design bliss in the shops today? I wish.

I’m not going to lie, if chocolate came in packaging as awsome as this today, I would probably try eat the box too.
