Handcrafted cement planters by Doctor Flamingo $20

Doctor Flamingo creates unique cement plant pots by first collecting up all the recyclable containers they can find before using them as moulds to pour the different cement mixtures in to, using them one last time before they head out to be recycled. Each pot is unique with no mould being used twice! 

Price Range: $15 - $30

 

Reproduction Porcelain Automotive Signs $55

Porcelain signs are made by fusing a powdered enamel paint on to a metal surface using intense heat. This process creates durable signage that is fade proof and will stand the test of time. 

These 1970s reproductions of 1930's automotive service signs are the perfect gift for the vintage loving gearhead in your life!  Each one measures just under a foot in diameter and with brands like Oldsmobile, Supertest, Conoco and more, you're sure to find a hit. Find them online under Automobilia, or stop in to see them in person. $55 each!
