Could the vintage community be the secret to stamping out online trolls with positivity?
This is the question one incredible pinup from Perth in Australia is asking as she combines her love of vintage with her academic career.

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.

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.
And that box of goodies has lead to a vintage journey with many twists and turns.
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.
