So, after settling down a bit in our new house, I've been obsessed with decorating.
I typically go to Ikea and Target for my decorating needs, but this time I want to take a different approach. I want to start decorating with things that have a bit of character.
This approach is so different for me. I like to get my house decorating out of the way when I first move in to a space, but finding vintage items is not something you can really speed through. It's a process finding those items that speak to you. Plus, these items typically cost more money, so I'm buying things one at a time, given my current financial situation ;)
I've been looking for items, and inspiration, on Etsy, Craigslist, and at local vintage shops. It's really fun! I could spend hours perusing Etsy's vintage section!
Here are a few of my favorites:
Little Byrd Vintage
Lack Luster Co.
Little Red Mercantile
It's going to take quite a long time to acquire all of the perfect items, but I'm hoping to share the experience with everyone along the way! If you have any tips or suggestions, I'd love to hear them.
