Vintage is Not For Grandma Anymore: Embellish Your Home with Retro Homewares

HEY EVERYONE! WE FINALLY HAVE A NEW BLOG ENTRY, YAY! WRITTEN BY ONE OF OUR STAFF MEMBERS, AMY, SHE WRITES ABOUT HOW TO DECORATE YOUR HOME WITH VINTAGE COLLECTIBLES.  CHECK IT OUT!

I often find when collectibles are labeled “vintage”, they take on a nostalgic character of which most antique stores and consignment shops take advantage, pricing their items much higher.  However, The Attic is different.  These are one of a kind items as well, but this does not mean you will pay more for them.
Not only does the word “vintage” carry an essence of expense, but a notion of being outdated or unfashionable.  However, vintage items are coming back and have been for quite a while.  Vintage collectibles have now become unique and almost contemporary often because they are one of a kind.  Toss away your notions of vintage being solely for grandma and creatively decorate your home with unique homewares!
