About

We source uncommon vintage and antique goods for collectors, design professionals, prop stylists, artists, art directors, and producers.

We specialize in small objects with history, patina, and delightful details that add soul to your space or project. We love odd and unusual items as well as ordinary objects looked at with unusual eyes or used in unexpected ways.

We work directly with individuals to find items tailored to their personal style, so please drop us a line on what you’re looking for. Occasionally we offer some of our finds on this site, at antique/vintage markets, pop-up sales, or via Instagram at @noodlestand and @noodlebooks
