About

 

SamuelHello vintage lovers, treasure hunters, collectors, ladies, gentlemen and those in between. My name is Samuel. Welcome to Kitsch please.

Frustrated by the time and energy spent trawling through the jungle of online classifieds and traveling from store to store, looking for great vintage pieces for the home, I couldn’t help but wonder; surely, there has to be a better way!

The seed was planted, and soon grew to become ‘Kitsch please’ – a dedicated and curated online marketplace for buying and selling unique vintage treasures for the home.

The term ‘vintage’ is thrown around a lot these days. I use the term loosely to describe a range of Mid-Century styles like Mid-Century Modern, Retro, Boho, Hollywood Regency and Vintage Industrial. If it’s unique, pre-loved, handsome (!), and not run-of-the-mill, flat-packed and ready-to-build, then it has a home on Kitsch please.

Kitsch please features a broad range of pieces from statement furniture to cheap and cheerful finishing touches. New stock is uploaded often, so make sure to keep checking in. You never know what you’ll find!

You’re invited too, whether a private seller or a vintage retail business, to list your wares on Kitsch please. Unlike other online sales platforms, I curate all listings – so your products are only seen in good company, in the right category, and by those looking for a product just like yours.

As a stylist, I don’t endorse a fully decked out, era-specific vintage interior, and on the other hand, recoil at the same-same replications of the latest Ikea catalogue. Instead, I believe that a stylish interior, and one that just –feels– good, is achieved through an eclectic blend of a bit of this and that, with a bit of old and new, using pieces that have personality and a story. Pieces that speak to you and your personal style.

I founded Kitsch please with a view to provide a dedicated platform to buy and sell unique vintage homewares and furniture, to simplify sustainable purchase decisions, and to empower people to find their own interior style – in any space and on any budget.

So, welcome. Have a browse, find a treasure, sell your wares, and help me rediscover, revalue and recycle!
