Houston we have a problem!
Oh no we don’t we have a vintage lover!
History and a love of old things usually go hand in hand – especially as we start looking for the story behind the items we collect.
So it’s not surprising that a woman with a love of space history also loves mid century modern.
This week, it’s my pleasure to introduce you to the woman behind Vintage Space Amy Shira Teitel.
He’s the first Australian musician since the 1950’s to release a 78 gramophone record.
He embraced his love of vintage fashion when he was still in high school.
He’s got a collection of over 5 thousand 500 gramophone records.
And he even has his own orchestra!
He is Andrew Nolte.
“If you have a head you can wear a hat”.
It’s not surprising that this sentence came out of the mouth of a passionate milliner.
Someone who can remember being enamored with a vintage hat when she was 8 years old.

Growing up during the Rockabilly revival in the 1980’s Kirsty Wallett, aka France Flathead , was surrounded by vintage cars, fashion and music.
So it’s not surprising that as an adult she found herself living a vintage life.
But even still, like so many of us, it has been an interesting journey.
A collection starts with just one piece.
Something catches your eye because of the colour, the design, the purpose and then before you know it you have 2, 5, 10 and on it goes, until you hit 1,500 pieces of Pyrex!
Or is that just what happened to Stan Savellis from That Retro Piece?
For some of us, we find our love of vintage later in life after decades of trying to make skinny jeans and t-shirts feel right.
But for this weeks guest, the love affair with old things started when she was young.
Now it’s a fully fledged hobby, it’s helped shaped her career and helped her meet her husband and some of her closest friends.
