Antique Spotlight: Collecting Vintage & Retro Patterns

Original Article: Dusty Old Thing

There’s a romance in looking back at the kinds of clothes we wore “back in the day” and a fascination with certain styles from long ago. With so many period TV shows and movies we see some of the wonderful clothes worn “upstairs” or “down”, Edwardian, flapper, frugal during War, extravagant later, bold, modest, strange and classic.

5 Tips for Buying Antique Furniture

Antique furniture is a big investment and, well, a big thing to cart home. Before you put time and money into one of these purchases, check out our tips for buying antique furniture – then enjoy the hunt for something unique!
