Vintage pharmacy or vintage bistro. Judging by the vintage bistro tables my vote goes to the bistro. This commercial space looks like an old pharmacy with vintage medicine bottles stacked almost to the ceiling in this over sized vintage shelving unit. Those pharmacists didn’t have it easy. Medicine and drugs were stored in large glass bottles and metal containers. A lot of wall space was needed and pharmacists had their own manual system to track it all. Today, our medicine is neatly stored in little plastic containers and the actual size of medicine and pills is much smaller. And we now have computers to keep track of prescriptions, inventory and customers. Pharmacies have come a long way.
Vintage Bistro Tables
What makes a successful restaurant can be narrowed down to three key ingredients, good location, good food and good atmosphere. Location is important and so is preparing good food. No one wants to eat something they can prepare themselves. But restaurant patrons also want good atmosphere. They want to feel like they are dining out somewhere special and not eating in their own kitchen or dining room. So restaurant owners continually try to set their bistro apart from the rest with making the decor unique and different. For example, take these vintage pharmacy items from the early 1900’s, add some vintage bistro tables, chairs and some cool lighting. Paint the walls black and diners will feel transported back in time the minute they enter the bistro. Table for two,not a problem. Follow me to the isle between phosphoric acid and magnesium oxide. And don’t worry about your food, all of these vintage glass bottles are empty.
