Over the summer, I spent a lot of time (some might say too much) at estate and tag sales searching for inventory for my Etsy shop. Truth be told, I enjoy browsing and would go to these sales even if I didn’t have a vintage shop. However, I can’t justify accumulating so much stuff in my own home.
My natural tastes lean towards eclectic with a mix of vintage and modern. For example, my living room has a modern looking white leather sectional and glass and chrome shelving mixed with early-to-mid century pieces, including a 1920s reupholstered armchair, an antique clock, and midcentury marble-topped side table (one of my summer finds).
I love finding interesting pieces that become conversation pieces in a room or eye-catching fashion accents. And I relish the search. The best part of browsing is not knowing what you might find next.
