Come September our office supplies fixation reaches a raging high point. And we’re guessing you can relate. This year, our nostalgia for basic back-to-school supplies (number two pencils anyone?) is coupled with our obsession with all things norm core. The result? We’re on the hunt for vintage-inspired, over-simplified supplies like the below…
Lunch Lady land
Schoolhouse Electrics Cafeteria Tray
This olive green fiberglass tray is the ultimate in back-to-school feels. Manufactured in the United States from a vintage mold, it can be used for just about everything – to store office supplies or actually serve lunch in it’s perfect little compartments. Shop around at Schoolhouse Electric below, we’re swooning over everything they make.
Pb&J all the way
Waxed Canvas Lunch Bag
This charming canvas sack has such an authentic paper lunch bag look, we can almost smell the PB&J. We think these make a great eco-conscious choice for children’s actual school lunches or just a cool, neutral choice for toting all kinds of things to work.

Schoolhouse Electric’s Kennedy Clock
Remember watching the clock in school? We’re loving this midcentury wall clock for it’s graphic sophistication – complete with domed glass lens. Hand-assembled in a Portland, Oregon factory.
Public Supply Notebooks
What would a round-up like this be with a great item from Public Supply? Using Pantone ink and recycled paper, these classic, smart-looking books are ready for fresh notes. Public Supply donates 25% of their profit to public school art programs throughout the US.
West Elm leather pencil case
This case in and of itself doesn’t feel very vintage, but needing a pencil case in the first place? Totally old-school. The classic look and leather materialization of this case means it’ll stand the test of time.
