I love looking for little vintage treasures … not so much large antique furniture, but fun little things that look like they have a story to tell.
Even if your decor is more contemporary, try sprinkling in a few vintage pieces here and there. I guarantee you’ll get compliments. They are conversation starters; the things that make people say “Wow, where did you get that?” They are the things no one else has or seen in all the stores.
Here’s a few of my favorites:
I love these old tins I found at the Randolph Antiques Market that’s held the last weekend of every month from May to October in the West Loop of Chicago. The big one is an old hot cocoa tin. I usually put it away come spring and bring it out again right around the time you want to start drinking cocoa in late fall. The other three are say cloves, ginger and mustard. I love the pop of color they give to this shelf in my kitchen. They were very inexpensive, too!
Do you have some favorite vintage pieces in your home? Where are your favorite places to go “hunting”?
