W H A T  D O E S  V I N T A G E  M E A N  T O  U S?

Folke Home considers an item to be vintage if it is thought to be made about 20 years prior to the current year. We especially like goods from the 60s or earlier. Vintage items on woodennickelhome.com have been carefully selected and purchased and are constantly searching for the next great piece. Each item has been around awhile and used, so there is probably going to be some evidence of wear. Folke Home avoids finds that have major issues, anything noteworthy will be mentioned (in the copy).

 

 

H O W  S H O U L D  I  C A R E  F O R  M Y  V I N T A G E  I T E M?

We suggest hand washing all vintage cloth material and wiping wood items with a dust cloth. Do not use any form of furniture polish. A natural beeswax can be used periodically. Vintage dinnerware and glassware are suggested to be washed by hand unless otherwise noted in the product description. All melamine is dishwasher safe, but not microwavable.


W H A T  I S  A  F O U N D  I T E M?

A found item is a unique item offered exclusively through Folke Home. Each found item is unique, one-of-a-kind, and selected with care. We take a forgotten item that has great appeal save it from ending up in yet another landfill. We are about REUSE, REDUCE, REFURBISH, & RECYCLE.

 

 

 

W H A T  I S  A  M A D E  I T E M?
