P.O.S.H. Chicago

Wondering where the photo from coffee + cre8tive came from? P.O.S.H. Chicago. Those red lace floral creamers were unearthed in the basement of a century-old restaurant suppy warehouse, a stockpile of unused china dating from the 1920’s. Price? $6-8 each. Looking for some cute diner mugs? You may like the pancakes make people happy mug or for amelie addicts, the sunny yellow french gnome mugs and dinnerware. The Chicago skyline dinnerware is a favorite of mine, along with the vintage swedish creamers.
“At some point in your life, you want something that is real!” That thought is what drives P.O.S.H. to search high & low for the items that stock its shelves – an eclectic assortment of vintage Hotel Silver, Restaurant China & Flea Market Finds. Found in such disparate places as old American china warehouses to the antique markets and auction houses of Europe, the items sold at P.O.S.H. are often one-of-a-kind or limited in quantity. From a vintage silverplate Tea Service once used in an English Country Inn to a beautiful Water Pitcher from a Grand Hotel in New York, many of our pieces tell a romantic story of an age gone by.

If you’re in the windy city, they have a storefront too, so make sure you visit and let us know what you thought!

    Holly Holly Bo-Bolly!
    Your post this morning reminds me of this FANTASTIC store in NYC on Broadway just north of Union Square.
    It is Fishes Eddy. I am sure you have heard of it, but if not check it out at http://www.fishseddy.com/. The have ceramic dinnerware designed by Cynthia Rowley, (those have naked ladies on them!) and great kitsch airline flatware.
    In store they have great mix and match dishware from old hotels for not a lot of cash! Thats what I had all thru college. I think you will really like it!
    I love, love love their Carnival Glasses. They remind me of a more sophisticated Tom and Jerry glass cup from when I was a kid!
