It’s exciting to see a creative business fearlessly delving into multiple kinds of media. Why shouldn’t a shop also teach classes and print magazines? Why can’t a space be a cafe, art gallery, music venue and office all rolled into one? If you can do several things and do them well, I say go for it! Antiquaria is a great example of this multifaceted approach. Bailey Amon, a calligrapher and stylist, and Emma James, an illustrator and print designer, teamed up in 2010 to launch a vintage housewares company, Antiquaria. On top of that, they’ve produced a really impressive seasonal inspiration magazine. It’s stunning, but I guess I should expect as much from a stylist and print designer :) Click here to check out the magazine and their full collection of wares. — Kate


Emma and Bailey are two supremely talented ladies, and this, I’m sure, will only be the tip of iceberg in terms of what you see from them. It was so wonderful to get to collaborate with them on the first edition of the Antiquarian Post!


This is an inspiring effort! Thanks for sharing it and look forward to seeing more. I love object groupings (was attracted to the picture) and then I got to discover all of this.

Looks lovely, only –

In the shop, one of their vintage tea towels is called “south whales” when it is from New South Wales, which seems a bit of a boo boo…
