The rugged wares scooped up by vintage webshop Relique are utter gems from the industrial age: wood propellers, patina-heavy tin organizers, milking stools, Polaroid cameras, chemist’s flasks, and just about anything else you’d expect to find while rummaging about in grandpa’s garage. Each piece, many of which are factory cast-offs or salvaged from decaying buildings and estate sales, is a one-of-a-kind treasure.
