Every decade features its signature styles of graphic design, advertising logos, and fonts, but I think those from the 1970s and 80s were among the coolest. That's why I was super excited to spot these vintage soup mugs while thrifting over the weekend:
I just love the colors of the type on the "SOUP" mug, and was blown away by the super retro font of the "CHOWDER" mug. What a perfect set to display in a hip, colorful kitchen!
Next, I found Helvetica Heaven at an estate sale. I snapped up not one but FOUR great-condition French jar glass canisters in Helvetica font. I've always love these jars and have rarely found four at once.
the shop by week's end, and I have a couple of other pieces featuring 70s/80s typography already listed:
Another French jar featuring red type
"ETC" sign that I am soooo tempted to keep for my own office. I'd love to post it right above my overflowing inbox!
I hope everyone had a fun and fruitful thrifting/flea marketing/tag saling experience this weekend. I'm linking up with the following blogs to check out everyone else's great finds!
