{Vintage hearts the digital world}

Two words: vintage shopping. If you're like us, then these words will probably conjure up images of romantic strolls through flea markets like this one in Paris; not images like this.

We're so excited to share this website with you all we might just burst! Supermarket Sarah is, quite possibly, the best online store we've ever used. Its a fusion of two periods; a juxtaposition of two very different worlds - the vintage and cyber worlds - and, amazingly, it works. The premise of the site is a simple one: Sarah arranges vintage objects on her living room wall, takes a picture of it and ta-da - Supermarket Sarah is born. How are new products added one may ask? Easily! Sarah makes another display on her living room wall and with the click and a flash of her camera, the new collection is ready to view and buy online. We love how ingenious this idea is - it's so simple, yet manages to effortlessly ooze imagination and personality. The Caravelle 50's Fergusion Radio has Bright.Bazaar's name all over it - considering our per chant for a good picnic we've an idea for the perfect use for it.
