One really cool thing about living vintage is a story from our recent show. We decided that turning the pool room into a play room was the right decision for our 4 year old. Out with the pool table- in with toys and storage. I took a few things off the wall that I had purchased at a show about 10 years ago to our show in Nashville. I sold them and used the money to buy a set of vintage gym lockers. Now I didn't make any money on the sales, but I took money that I spent 10 years ago and turned it into something I needed today. The Pottery Barn item that was in the room, went into the trash.

How do you measure up?

This blog is not about measuring up to any pre-conceived notions. It is a simple expression of how "I live Vintage" through the eyes of many. So, shelve any expectations and open your eyes.
