So one thing I have realized since I moved in to my church is that I love all things vintage. There are more than one reason why I love vintage.
- I love its style, color, and quality. But a really important reason is that it is ridiculously affordable, meaning really cheap or even free.
- I love the idea of reusing items as a way of reducing waste. It does not have as big as an impact as reusing this church, but I believe it definitely makes a difference.
- It might be a bit creepy, but I often find myself wondering what kind of life a particular vintage piece had before I got a hold of it (the same type of wondering I do with old buildings).
I am pretty lucky since my mom is in the business of dealing with antiques and vintage stuff. Anytime she gets an item in her store, Frogs on the Footbridge, that she thinks I would love, I get a message from her letting me know about it (thanks mom!).
