Vintage movie night – 1960s New York

Who doesn’t love a good movie night? Kick your feet up, turn down the lights and disappear into a world of glamour. I adore vintage glamour. The kind people would admire on the silver screen back in the days. Men in sharp suits wearing hats, women with gorgeous hair and fabulous dresses. I love to get lost in vintage movies, and get overwhelmed by a pleasant feeling of historical nostalgia.

There are so many, many famous movies perfect for a vintage movie night: “Rebel Without a Cause” starring James Dean or Marlon Brando acting tough in “The Wild One”. And utterly amazing movies and shows that were inspired by the fifties and sixties: “Mad Men”, “Happy Days” and yes, “Grease”. Who doesn’t love Grease?

Today, I’m sharing some of my favourite vintage movies, that always make me feel good. As I was writing this, I realized I could go on for hours talking about the movies that have a special place in my heart. So I decided to break it up into a little series. First up: 1960s New York! (more…)

Looking back on 2018

2018… This year flew by like a whirlwind! A whole lot can happen in 365 days and it’s kind of nice to stop and look back for a second. The past year mostly revolved around our The Greaser and the Doll webshop and it definitely paid off: we were able to make a lot of people very happy, we got to visit awesome events and we managed to expand our collection even more!

Of course we were up to more than that. We had a blast during trips to amazing cities, the Doll sewed up a storm and the Greaser discovered the art of Tiki carving.

As always, we worked our socks off in 2018, but it is so worth it! We’re looking back at last year with great pride and we’re beyond thankful for all the support!

A Rock ‘n Roll Travel Guide – Paris

Paris is one of those places everyone should visit, at least once in their life. The view from the Eiffel Tower, a stroll down the Champs-Élysées and admiring the Mona Lisa by Da Vinci at the Louvre are obvious musts when you travel to Paris. However, for lovers of Rock ’n Roll, retro, cocktails and Tiki, there are a lot of other really cool things to do in Paris!

This is our top 10! (more…)

A Rock ‘n Roll travel guide – Oslo

Oslo is one of those places everyone should visit, at least once in their life. The view from the Holmenkollen Ski Jump, a stroll down the Karl Johans Gate and admiring “The Scream” by Munch at the National Gallery are obvious musts when you travel to Oslo. However, for lovers of Rock ’n Roll, retro, cocktails and Tiki, there are a lot of other really cool things to do in Oslo!
