future vintage

guess I would be very happy if I find this pillow at
the flea market in 20 years...
but for now you can still get it at

 in 20 years you will not find
them anymore and if you do they will be very exspensive  
( small record case)

in the moment I go crazy if I find some
vintage Figgjo but in 20 years I will be delighted to find  some mugs
from Satumetsae( fairytale forest) by Iittala
