Hunting for Treasures
One question I always get asked when people come into my home is "where did you buy that?" For those of you that do like to shop, have you ever considered antiquing?
So... one thing I always like to do is to incorporate vintage pieces into some of my designs. When I go into a client's home, inevitably they have a heirloom piece that was handed down to them. Vintage pieces can add beauty, character and interest into many spaces. When I travel I try to Google to find out information about where the antique shops are located. I actually just shipped back a piece of art from Nashville. Check out flea markets, estate sales, local antique malls and antique fairs. You can also pick up pieces on Craig's List. Just remember that in most situations the seller will usually take 10% off the price, especially if you are paying cash. Enjoy the hunt and best of luck finding your next treasure.
