I'm an artist (see my other Etsy shop: Studio6or7) that loves all things vintage. I started shopping second hand shops for vintage clothing when I was about 12. It drove my mother crazy- I didn't exactly dress like all the other girls. But I loved it then, and I love it now.
I also love vintage for being kind to the earth. Rather than extracting new resources and continuing to deplete what little resources are left, buying vintage gives the earth a chance to recover, and generally, vintage items hold up longer than newer items as well.
As a mixed media artist, I've always been drawn to vintage books in particular for their simple illustrations, colors and designs. And I'm personally addicted to books, to the point that they are pushing me out of my little house. But pre-loved books are the best- they tell a story and they have their own…
