Vintage Americana Without Vintage Shopping

UD - Bill Adler Belts There is no majesty in art like the majesty of dogs playing poker.

But try to keep an open mind about what we're about to lay on you…

Introducing the wholly under-the-radar collection of vintage, reclaimed art at Rckndy on U Street, available now to up the handsomeness quotient in your humble abode.

So if you've been thinking you need a fresh injection of vintage collectibles and other offbeat cultural markers—but didn't really want to spend the time tracking down and framing old American flags—then Rckndy is your new, vowel-free emporium of cool.

The owners have spent years hunting through America and Europe in search of great 20th century artifacts for you to hang on your walls. Among them: modernist luggage labels from bygone carriers such as British European Airways and Air Afrique, postcards from extinct Florida hotels and matchbooks from the long-lamented Playboy clubs—all hailing from the 1930s to 1960s.

If you're looking for something a little bigger, look to the mid-century maps of Europe, reclaimed from a now-defunct boys' school in France.

The museum-worthy curios should tide you over until you finally grab that Jasper Johns you've had your eye on.

Or until cats start playing poker.
