Bringing History Into Your Home with Vintage & Antique Pieces March 15, 2012
One of the things I find so fascinating about vintage and antique pieces in the home, is that they have this wonderful history. I wonder what kind of home the piece was in…if it was a happy home, filled with love, or something else.
Was the item purchased as a special gift, for a wedding gift, birthday or over time, on lay-away at the department store, downtown?
If I was starting to furnish my first home, I’d much rather shop for one of a kind things found here, at Veranda Antiques, at a thrift store or antique fair, than something mass produced, in cookie-cutter fashion, at Ikea or Pottery Barn. I’m happy to see more and more young 20 and 30 year olds coming into the shop, enjoying the “hunt”, as I do.
What treasure have you rescued lately? I’ll bet you smile every time you see it!
What ever you do this weekend, be sure you shop antique and vintage!
Best to you each morning!,
