My favourite vintage things: a peek inside the home
I LOVE vintage things. My parents used to drag my sister and I antiquing through the days of folk style reigning king, and all I remember is a dusty smell, dark barns and TONS of taxidermy. Not exactly my scene as an eight year-old.
Man, have things changed since then. Give me antiquing and picking any day! I think that even though it wasn’t my favourite thing to do as a kid, being so familiar with it created a nostalgia that makes me look back on it really fondly!
Now, before I go out to buy things, the first thing I do is go to the antique mall down the road from my place to see if something well-made from years ago will fit the bill.
Want to see some of my favourite finds? Some of these are handed down from grandparents, but most are picked up at the antique mall instead of opting for something new.
Reduce, reuse, recycle 🙂
I hope you enjoyed the look into the kinds of vintage items I keep (and regularly use) in my home!
