Since I was a young girl, my grandparents would take me to antique shops and then we would stop to get ice cream afterwards. My grandma would never purchase anything, she just loved reminiscing and telling me stories about things that would bring back memories for her. And I enjoyed hearing about all the wonderful treasures and where they came from and what they were used for.
Now that I am grown up and have kids of my own, I share the same tradition with my own children. We often frequent thrift stores, antique shops and estate sales. I teach my kids about vintage and antique items that I am familiar with and they often ask a lot of questions because they have their own fondness for finds.
I have a pretty good eye for zeroing in on fabulous vintage and antique home goods and getting a great deal on them too. It makes me excited to list on Etsy and be able to offer these items so that they can be loved again and cherished for many…
