Vintage Spoons

Vintage spoons get a second chance to shine thanks to Maker Karen Ngai of Monkeys Always Look. Karen sources spoons from flea markets, auctions, and yard sales around the country to create her one-of-a-kind markers.

Karen flattens and hand-stamps each spoon in her San Diego studio. You can pick a spoon that already bears a phrase—like Celebrate, XOXO, or Thank You—or you can customize your own with a name, date, or short message.

Whether you use a spoon as an add-on to a gift, as a garden marker, or a token of thanks, it’s a special and unique touch that makes for a thoughtful and beautiful presentation.
