I will almost always pick old, over new on anything.
I have loved vintage, longer than I can remember.
When I was younger and living on a shoestring, I went to a thrift store, to find something to cover a big picture window in a apartment, I had just rented. I found a beautiful vintage crocheted tablecloth in antique white, for $4.00. I took it home, and threw it over the the curtain rod. Just pinned it in a few places. I can't tell you how pretty it was when the light shined through that window. It was beautiful! I have never gotten so many compliments on a window treatment since. Even after spending much more money on them. I just love that feeling of giving something old "new life". Even these days, my shoestring is a bit longer, but I still prefer to walk miles of flea markets, estate sales/auctions, and yes, even rummaging, for things you'll find in my home…
