sofita vintage shop and a giveaway!

If teapot could choose a place to live in, this would be the dreamy world of Sofita Vintage Shop. Open for nearly three years in Thisio Area, this tiny gem has been selling vintage furniture and items dating back to the 40′s till early 90′s. I caught myself craving every single piece from its treasures. If it’s on display, it should be on my wishlist too.

Sofita’s owners decided to build a shop that could express their great “affection” for the Βone China, furniture pieces and the decorative items. Their long-term stay abroad, France and United States, changed their vision and enhanced their love for everything belonging to past decades.

“Vintage isn’t a role that you have to play solely. It’s all about mixing the old with the contemporary.” Visiting Sofita is a “treasure hunting” experience. A thrilling “safari” between two floors where everything is calling your name. Search for apothecary bottles, enamelware, retro luggage, vintage glassware, tins and of course turn-tables and teapot sets.

A few steps down you will find a remarkable collection of upcycled vintage furniture. Every piece is carefully selected, treated with care and with new upholstery and transformed into a “jewel” at their warehouse. Mid century danish furniture, cabinets, bed side tables, etageres, trunks and coffe-tables are all part of the story. Dig out for the perfect piece and I bet you’ll find it hard to decide.

Dο not miss the amazing collection of vintage linen, floral cushions and custom-made quilts. Ask for their hidden finds if you are in the mood for something special. You will also fall for their old school maps, the fine china glassware, the vintage frames and the large selection of kitchenalia and bric-a brac!

Prices are surprisingly reasonable for products so lovingly put together. Think porcelain tea sets from 25€ to 35€ and jug sets with six tumblers at 20€. You can also rent everything from the store for commercials and films with a vintage aesthetic. Don’t worry if you are not Athens based because Sofita is shipping its goods countrywide with special care taken for every package.
