I found the most amazing antique mall today in my town. Chock full of mid-century modern and early 50's furniture. Makes me all the more eager to drag my stuff out the door and put "for sale" on it. Though, I would feel bad...the furniture I have now is pretty new and still good...its just not my taste. I walked out the store with a dish for my jewelry, a necklace, pair of earrings and a gift for my mother.
This is possibly one of the first vintage dressed that I have purchased. It is my boyfriends favorite dress...I remember his reaction when I first wore it for him in Montreal last summer. The owner of one of the antique stores stopped me and complimented me on my outfit. She later went on to say how her daughter was always buying vintage clothing and making dresses from vintage patterns. I wish I had the patience to sew...I have tried before, but I am too quick to throw my hands in the air.
If you ever get the chance to, stand in a room full of ticking clocks with your eyes shut. It will feel as if you are inside some large, wooden machine.
