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.

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.

What was the first vintage item that you owned?
For this weeks guest it was a hand me down box of polyester beauties that first spiked her interest.

This week we meet the amazing Miss Baltimore Bombshell.
Kauffman Desert House – Palm Springs. Marco’s favourite mid-century home.
I love looking at real estate.
The more out of my budget the better.
I don’t know if it’s getting a sense of how others live or being able to dream of a time (maybe, hopefully) that a house could be mine.
Of course most of my dream real estate hunting ends up with my focussing on mid-century modern homes from around the world. So I was pretty pleased to meet Marco Guagliardo from Mid-Century Home.
Paris Brown’s great grandparents lived through a lot; war, depression, innovation and modernisation.
They saw tv and the internet develop, presidents assassinated, nations recover from war and man walk on the moon, how can you not be inspired by that!
It’s not surprising Paris now lives a modern vintage life.
There are some incredible people in the Australian and global vintage community.
