Vin­tage TIPS

-

When it comes to thought­ful, col­or­ful old-time finds for her home, Stacy truly be­lieves that an­tiquing re­quires plenty of pa­tience and time. As fun as it is to quickly scour shops for the per­fect piece, she thinks thrift­ing re­ally should be a wait­ing game.

“It has to hap­pen or­gan­i­cally,” she says. “Don’t rush the process. Check out lo­cal flea mar­kets, es­tate sales, garage sales and thrift stores. Keep in mind that you’ll hit mul­ti­ple stops that are a bust, but even­tu­ally you’ll hit the one where you feel like you struck gold.” If you’re short on time and you just need that spe­cial item, she rec­om­mends sift­ing through cu­rated vin­tage bou­tiques. She says, “If your bud­get al­lows, check out bou­tique shops, many of which have an on­line store too. They have taken the time to cu­rate their best finds and have done all the hard work for you.”
