Gulden Draak Vintage Bottle

Gulden Draak Vintage beer. White coated beer bottle with a golden pig/seal/submarine animal catching snowflakes on its tongue.

This summer in Danmark my uncle uncharacteristically pulled out a non-pilsner while we were having happy hour. The moment my eyes spied the bottle the part in my brain devoted to cool design lit up. The whole bottle except for the lip is coated in white and the label has a strange seal/pig/submarine animal wildly catching snowflakes on its tongue.

Catching snowflakes with vigor. Deadly vigor.

My dear old dad saw the halo of design joy surrounding this bottle, and took the bottle home with him so that this Christmas, what was waiting for me under the tree? Gulden Draak Vintage! If any a bottle were to get me to drink beer, this would be it. As the Danes would say: skål!

Anaco Pears Placard

Anaco pear card, vintage split-serif type with a single glowing yellow pear.

I went to California recently, and although I visited the area canvassed with strip malls and big box stores, I was able to find a small town general store that had some fun vintage fruit placards. I love pears, so I took this one home with me (and totally got through border control with it!).

Detecto Scales

I like to measure things so when I found this old scale I just had to get it. It has a neat font for the face and tells me exactly how much my lunch weighs. If my lunch weighs under 10 pounds, that is. If it weighs more than 10 pounds, I guess I have bigger problems than inaccurately weighing my lunch. Mmmm, lunch. Want a Danish sandwich?
