I have been fascinated with vintage and antique items since I moved back east from California 14 years ago. While in college, I studied Antiques and Architectural Preservation. I love that vintage items have witnessed things...the use or purpose in the lives of their previous owner evident on their surface. Or not - as in the case of many of the porcelain objects that I find, which were cherished so that they appear to hardly have been used.
Lately, another reason to appreciate existing goods became important to me, as I strive to live a "green" lifestyle. As renewable as bamboo and recycled glass items may be...the "greenest" thing to buy is something that was produced decades ago. If we all realized how many wonderful items already existed in the world we would not need to buy as many mass produced items.
When you buy vintage you are not only giving yourself an item with character and history, you are "recycling". I am committed to reducing my impact on the environment in as many ways that I can, including packing your purchase in tissue paper made from 100% post consumer content, gift boxes made from 100% post consumer content and reusing shipping boxes and sealing them with natural rubber packing tape. I am happy to share my sources with you if you are interested.
As an interior designer by trade, I also appreciate having something unique in my home instead of filling it with "big box" store items.
Thank you again for stopping by!
