Old’s Cool Designs

Welcome to Old’s Cool Designs where vintage charm, craftsmanship and sustainability come together.
I source beautiful, high quality vintage silver flatware and hand hammer it one letter at a time with cute, witty or custom phrases to make eating more fun!

These spoons, forks and cheese knives make the perfect gift as they are a joy to give as well as receive.

My name is Wendy Yates and I am the sole designer, creator, producer and marketer of Old’s Cool Designs hand stamped vintage flatware.

My obsession began with a photograph on a food blog back in 2012 which introduced me to the art of metal stamping. I bought my first set of alphabet stamps and “borrowed” a few of my Nana’s silver spoons. I fell in love with the perfectly imperfect whimsical look of hand stamping and was instantly addicted.

I now have over 50 different fonts, hundreds of design stamps and thousands of silverware pieces that I hand stamp, one letter at a time, with sweet, sassy and inspirational phrases out of home studio in beautiful Nanoose Bay BC.
