Thrifted Recently

Gustavsberg plate and Danish plastic box from Garant.

Figgjo souvenir plate from the 60s with picture of Sami people. A bit kitchy and slightly political incorrect today.

I've wanted a stepping stool for the kitchen sometime. By Swedish Rörens and orginally meant to help you out with the ironing. And I never iron anything. Also handy for looking up hidden cookies in cupboard.

Shearing these at Flea Market Findsand Apron Thrift Girl.

Malyss and Christine: In the past the sami culture was a victim of "orientalism" (Said), in the postcolonial context, showing a simplified, exoticiced culture, much like the native Australian culture. The plate is from the 60s, and it was like that back then. However that's changed today, and they still make souvenir platters, but the perception of the sami culture has changed, and complexified. Does that make sense? Puh, need a beer now.
