Past Presents: Gifts for the mid-century maven.

The aim of this blog is to get avid consumers to reevaluate their buying habits and broaden their shopping horizons by providing different options within the vintage and secondhand marketplace. Today's post is for anyone who's ever been confounded by finding a gift for a host (or hostess), a bride (or bridegroom), or for a housewarming party. And particularly if the recipient is partial to mid-century design. Here are some pretty past presents, all from etsy.

A pair of Danish teak candlesticks from california vintage* ($30).

Wooden tray from moxie thrift ($9.89).

Punch bowl from Thrifty Goodness ($22).

Peapod condiment tray from Ms. Betsy's Vintage ($15).

Four stainless steel candle holders from studio AMF ($18).

Cast iron candelabra, designed by Jen Quistgaard for Dansk, from little green frog ($65).

Franciscan pitcher, Del Mar pattern by Gladding McBean & Co., from MidCenturyModern ($75).
