So, we have discovered that Stir Cooking School has pretty cool bathroom decor (see Previous Stir Bathroom Decor Posts below) and now we are going to check out their vintage posters and art.
Quick Disclaimer: I understand that what truly qualifies as authentic, vintage posters is somewhat elusive and left open to interpretation. And, since I’m not a fan of confrontation, we are not going to debate the collectors. Just clarifying, what I refer to as a vintage poster or art is an affordable style, not an expensive collector.
Katy, Stir’s owner, did a great job of combining contemporary and vintage interior design with the pops of color correlating with the vintage poster art. If you Google “vintage posters“, you will discover a plethora of options. The choices Stir narrowed down to display are perfect to help continue their story into the bathroom design.
Fresh Lobster Poster – Katy’s favorite uses a fun play on words. The lobster is getting “fresh” by P-EE-NCHIN’ (as we say in Texas) the waitress’ booty – something many of you guys might like to do. But, I don’t recommend getting any ideas, fellas.
You can find this vintage poster on Zazzle, choose the paper type, and have it custom framed.
Bieres de Chartres – A reproduction of a vintage French beer advertisement from the 30′s and is infamous in its own right. It is popular enough that it has made two cameo appearances on Friends. Check out the details on Chasing Props.

The vintage theme continues in Stir’s bathrooms with the metal bathroom signs on the doors to distinguish between the ladies’ and men’s rooms.
The ladies won’t make the mistake of heading into the Tinkler with this vintage metal sign.
Once they step inside, the guys will not feel like li’l boys when they catch sight of the “yella fella” using the tinkler. (See How to Paint Silhouette Wall Art for details.)
Just like the blue painted silhouette inside and the pin up on this vintage metal sign, a true lady will be sitting pretty in Stir’s ladies’ restroom. (See How to Paint Silhouette Wall Art for details.)
Vintage Poster Dealers
You can also find many vintage signs and posters in boutique and antique stores. Just keep your eyes peeled. Most of the stores will help keep a lookout if you let them know what you are looking for.
