My favorite shopping trip is to browse thrift stores, estate sales, garage sales, and flea markets to find treasures to pass along to my customers. In my home, I combine some of my favorite vintage items with new ones for a fresh look and have often found that the vintage products are sturdier than the new. I believe vintage objects have a special patina that comes from being cared for carefully and enjoyed for many years. I'm still learning about what's valuable and what's not, but honestly, I buy what I like and what I can see being used in today's modern home in a new way. Sometimes all it takes is a little bit of imagination!
