Who loves vintage china but hates seeing it sit around their house collecting dust?

Me too!!!! As much as I enjoy ogling all the pretties in thrift stores I can’t bring myself to start a china collection because quite frankly I am far too lazy to have to dust or wash the stuff. When my dear friend from Retrobutterfly Vintage let me in on this incredible label I let our an audible yip of joy!

Whiskey and White is the Etsy store of  New Zealand born and now Bingil Bay, Queensland based artist, Aimee, who goes by the superhero alias of ‘White’ and enjoys herself an odd whiskey or two. Like many of us she LOVES vintage china (something passed down from two generations before her) and decided that looking at china wasn’t enough she wanted to be able to incorporate this love into her everyday life.  According to her Etsy store Whisky and White was born out of a need to avoid the release of embarrassing family photos onto social media. Agreeing to her blackmailers demands (sisters can be so mean) she started her vintage china jewellery brand. A win for White because she no longer lives in fear that her embarrassing family photos will be sent out to internet land to eventually become a viral meme, and a win for us because vintage china jewellery is freaking adorable .

She spends her superhero days scouring op-shop, garage sales and markets sourcing the prettiest china available, and hand cuts and sands in the the wee hours of the morning making her one off bracelets, rings and necklaces. All are coated in resin to make the durable for your adventures in life.

I hope you enjoy this little op-shop inspired brand and that it, and all of this weeks National Op-Shop week posts have inspired you to think outside the box when it comes to up-cycling.

Thanks Whisky and White for such beautiful designs and thanks to all the readers out there that have actively got involved with talking all things thrift!
