Welcome to “Quick Picks” where we scour Krrb.com for remarkable finds and amazing pieces guided by just one word. Today’s word: Vintage
Worth’s Cloak in New York, NY
Vintspiration’s Krrb corner plays host to an array of remarkable finds including this incredible black velvet cloak by Worth’s ($64.00) from the ’40s with rhinestone buttons. If a cloak is not necessarily your thing don’t fret, there’s much more to sift through like this 70s scarf ($12.00), a super cute Guess cropped denim jacket ($39.00) from the ’80s, and (our personal favorite), a set of Miller glasses from the ’70s ($32.00).

Underwood Typewriter in Austin, Texas
If you’re living in or around Austin, Texas (or anywhere really) and you’ve been on the hunt for a typewriter, well, we’ve got you covered. This Underwood classic ($79.99) is in good shape and even comes with a case. Underwoods have been known to go for as much as $500 so this is a steal. Not in the mood to type? No worries, there are plenty of other treasures stacked neatly in Angela’s Krrb corner. Check out this watering can decorated with daisies ($29.99) or this set of four Morton Salt mugs ($14.99).

Polaroid Camera in Northeast Denver
Polaroids have a special place in everyone’s heart. They’re so iconic and let’s face it, they just don’t make ‘em like they used to. This particular Polaroid ($30.00) features a tripod mount, folding optical system (the camera collapses so it’s easier to carry), and a 114 MM lens. If you’re not into Polaroids there are plenty of items that will tickle your fancy in Embee’s (Northeast Denver) corner like a three-legged serving bowl ($18.00) or a space-age looking coffee maker ($50.00).

Rotary Telephone in New York, New York
In the age of wireless internet, IMs, and text messages, the thought of having a landline might sound silly—until you see this phone ($75.00). Dating back to the early 1900s, these phones are being redesigned and recreated by different companies and cost about the same as this original. Not a fan of the phone? Rose and Victor (New York City) have plenty more to capture your attention like a neon Camel cigarette sign from the ’60s ($175), a 90-year-old taxidermy armadillo from Argentina ($175.00), and a sewing machine by Kay-EE that dates back to the ’30s ($45.00).

Kicky Leather Jacket in Paris, France
This leather from the ’80s (50€) is reminiscent of Prince’s beaut in Purple Rain, minus the purple, plus the leather. There’s also some suede. Sweet! This gem of a jacket can be found hanging in Alex’s Krrb corner (Paris, France).

This sheer dress straight outta the ’80s makes us want to bear the cold and wear it anyway. Are you more practical? Liz @ The Blue Eyed Owl’s corner (Mesa, Arizona) has plenty of other items that work in all types of weather, like this handmade brooch ($12.00), an orange apron ($14.00), and for the aficionados out there this Sarah Coventry necklace ($26.00).
