More and more non vintage stores are adding vintage sections. What can we say.....vintage has become trendy? The great thing about vintage is it has a really wide range of styles and genres. What sparks someone's emotion and begins a collection is completely personal. A color can be the beginning of a collection - all things white, blue and white, or green. Sometimes it is a time period or a type of material. Whatever sparks you - run with it and have fun searching and collecting. We love when people live with their collections - have them accessible and incorporated into their everyday things.
Loving this amazing collection of pottery planters. Love the variation of colors and patterns. The height of the vintage crock really pulls it together. LOVE!

When you buy a vintage tray - is it only to be a tray? Or a box or a footed vase - think of vintage as a way to be original, find a new use to make vintage work in our everyday life.
Live with vintage......don't think of vintage as sitting in a china cabinet in a dusty corner.......think of it in the same way you would if you were buying modern. Need something to hold swatches or paint chips? How about a great piece of vintage glass.
Business card storage? How about a great box or a tin......
Need a little extra light at a desk area? Make it have character - use a boudoir lamp on your desk.
You might just feel like sitting at your desk again!
Check out this desk. This is living vintage right!

How does one live Vintage?
Living vintage doesn't mean tossing out everything and only living with vintage items. Vintage is a great way to express your individual taste and style, set yourself apart from the mass produced "looks" in every mall, shopping center and large store.
Living vintage is finding items that inspire you - a color, a pattern, a style, a period of time, a moment in a book or history..........
We hope to inspire you to create your own vintage living.
A vintage tray, a sugar bowl a eclectic collection of pottery usefully gathered near the coffee maker - Makes the morning rush a bit warmer and sweeter!
