Cavallini vintage stationery and office supplies

Since today’s vintage theme refers to a time, when people still used ink and paper to write letters (remember that part from You’ve Got Mail, when Tom Hanks is told by his grandfather how keeping in touch worked in the old days?) it is only right to include a post on vintage stationery and office supplies.

And I found just the perfect company with San Francisco based Cavallini & Co.  Their vintage inspired products depict animal and travel themes, such as drawings of butterflies and famous sights in Paris, and they are oh so beautiful and charming!  Cavallini’s products range from stationery to stickers, magnets, rubber stamps and much more.  All of it has this really nice vintage vibe to it, which gives you the feeling of entering a bygone world.  They make such pretty accessories for a girly girls room, by giving the room some class instead of kitsch – and are equally suitable for mom as well!  I can perfectly see little children going crazy if the postman brings them their own vintage mail!  With the Cavallini stamp kit, they can send grandma or their favorite doll a wonderful self-made letter, and learning their ABCs has never been more beautiful, than with their gorgeous alphabet cards!  So much beauty, I bet mom can’t take her eyes of these wonderful designs either, so you better get a calendar or some fridge magnets for yourself as well!

Available at Kate’s Paperie, e.g. stamps $30.00, small notebook $12.00
