Cleveland Ohio area finds
Happy 2016! I’ve been reading up on different ways to organize my home and different ways to purge things.

While searching around on Etsy’s local options, I came across Urge Studio which carries vintage items. This shop seems to be geared more towards industrial finds. They have a beautiful collection of cabinets, drawers, old boxes, tools, medicine bottles and chairs. If you are a collector, this is definitely a great shop for you!
If you are a fan of historic photos of Pittsburgh, you will get really lost in Retrographer. I was forwarded a link to this site a couple months ago and then reminded of it again today. Now, I have been browsing all morning at work.

I came across this great set of Waynesburg postcards on Greene Connection’s flickr page. I’m sure most of you know or have heard of Waynesburg which is a very rural area located in Greene County, PA. Today when you go there, there’s not a whole lot to look at but if your a looking for a drive in the country with covered bridges and green, rolling hills, then you should really venture down that way.
This set of vintage cans is amazing, I really had a hard time deciding which ones to post. I first came across this through the blog AisleOne but I have also seen people tweet about this set. Whomever owns this collection really has an appreciation for beer and type. The shape of these cans are also very interesting. The cans that stand out the most are the ones that simply say “Lite Beer.” The design on them seem like it was an after thought.
This is just the beginning of the collection, you can check out the entire set over on Flickr!
