One thing I have always loved is vintage/thrift shopping. There is NOTHING better than the thrill of a great find. Vintage items make a space unique, interesting and most importantly, gives a home something not everyone else has.

See what I mean? Sometimes, being able to see an item in a space and with the right styling can make allllllll the difference in the world. I'll probably do more postings like this, so let me know if you have ever found a vintage item that you are questioning!
