Affordable and Unique art for your home! / Billig og unike bilder!

If you're looking for cheap, affordable and unique art for your walls, I KNOW I found the right place for you. Last week I was out bargain hunting for antique / vintage furniture and possibly something for our walls. I was browsing at some vintage posters outside this store, Bærre Lækkert that looked like an old book store, quite boring actually.
The owner started talking to me, and really wanted to show me his store. I was like, I don't think so, I don't have the time, and it doesn't look like you have what I'm after. He was like, I KNOW YOU'RE NOT GOING TO BE DISAPPOINTED. I was like, oh well, I might as well use five minutes.
I ended up staying for an hour. This is one of the most amazing stores I've ever been in. Do they sell books? Yeah, some, but what it really is is a collection of 400 000 postcards. Some of them are ancient, some are from the 1980s. Many are horrid, many are amazingly fantastic. You might be asking, postcards? What do I need a postcard for? Well, the thing is, they transfer the image from the postcard to a poster.
You can choose yourself if you want it on a canvas or on photo paper. The quality is exquisite. The price for an A3 canvas? $38! If you want to buy the postcard as well, that can be arranged for an agreed upon price. Shipping in Norway is free. If you're from outside Norway, there will be an extra fee. Below you can see some of the postcards I found intriguing or interesting in some way. If you're interested in any of those images, let me know, and I'll put you in touch with the owner (which you can also contact directly at post@berrelekkert.no). If you mention my name (Dagny), you'll get an extra 10% off. I know, not a lot, but this is already dirt cheap :)

Hvis du leter etter billig og unike bilder til veggene dine, har jeg funnet det rette stedet. Forrige uke var jeg ute på brukt- og antikvitetsshopping og var ute etter noe stort å ha på veggen i stuen og evt se etter noen interessante møbler/gjenstander. Jeg ble stående å se på noen gamle plakater utenfor en anonymt utseende butikk, Bærre Lækkert. Jeg synes det så ut som et antikvariat og var ikke interessert i å gå inn. Eieren huket tak i meg utenfor og ville gjerne vise meg butikken hans. Jeg tenkte: tror ikke det, nei, ikke interessert, det ser ikke ut som om du har det jeg er ute etter. Han insisterte, og sa "JEG VET AT DU IKKE VIL BLI SKUFFET". Jeg tenkte, greit, bruker 5 min på dette, og så stikker jeg. Jeg endte opp med å bli i over en time. Det er virkelig en av de mest fantastiske butikkene jeg har vært i! Selger de bøker? Ja, noen, men det det egentlig er, er en perfekt organisert samling av 400 000 postkort. Noen unike, noen fra 1980-tallet. Mange er grusomme, og mange er virkelig fantastiske. Nå tenker vel du... Postkort? Hva skal jeg med postkort?

Bærre Lækkert overfører bildet fra postkortet til lærret eller fotopapir. For lærret koster det kr 200 for A3 - frakt er gratis! Kvaliteten på scanningen er fantastisk, og bildene kommer virkelig til sin rett. Nedenfor har jeg lagt ved et lite (ok, stort) utvalg av kortene jeg synes er interessante. Er det noen der du har lyst på, er det bare å ta kontakt med meg eller Bærre Lækkert direkte på post@berrelekkert.no. Nevner du navnet mitt (Dagny) får du også 10% i avslag. Ikke mye, men dette er jo allerede billig. :)


This postcard is hilarious - back in the days they had all kinds of stories about where babies come from.

They have a large selection of postcards of silhouettes.


More baby-fishing and "storking". There's also a large selection of different "where are babies from" cards.

These images below are categorized under romance:




Michelangelo - ROMA


These show canvases (made from postcards). The girl on the left is categorized under "luck":

They have a HUGE collection of landscapes:




Interiors:

Horse profiles:

Mountains:

Exotic:




Letters. I think they have the whole alphabet, it's really stunning:

Boats:

Children - holidays:



This is just cute:

Architecture:

Filed under Art Nouveau / Jugend. I think they had a complete set of all the months. Jan-April is shown here:




Bærre Lækkert also make custom frames in whatever color you'd like. If you have your own frames, like I do, they can make a custom canvas so that the image fits your frame. Or whatever size you'd like.

Some images from the store:



Another enlarged postcard. This on is MINE! :) It's a painting of a model of an ancient river boat that used to go on the Nile.

Again, if you're interested in any of these, contact me or Bærre Lækkert (post@berrelekkert.no) directly. They can make the canvas or photo paper any size you want, up to A3 (for now).

Fantastisk å oppdage små (store) perler som dette! Det var nok meningen at du skulle inn ditt:-)

Har selv spart på gamle postkort i mange år, og koser meg ofte med å bla igjennom alle de vakre motivene! Jeg har også laget en plakat av et kort med en nydelig alv på, som er godt gjemt sammen med en gammel sommerfugllampe,- tiltenkt et barnerom med tiden*s*

Supert tips fra deg til alle som vil ha noe unikt på veggen!

Ha en flott mandag!
