Vintage Love - Seesaw Vintage

This week's Vintage Love features one of my absolute favorite vintage shops, Seesaw Vintage, for all it's fabulous mid century homewares and fashion.

What do you love about vintage?
I love all the patterns and colors you find when hunting for vintage.  Many of the textiles you come across are truly amazing.

What is the best item you have ever come across when vintage/thrift shopping?
My best vintage find was an amazing 60's lamp whose base is made of many different pieces of driftwood.  It's such a conversation piece, and it makes me happy every time I look at it.

Do you have a style or method you like to use when vintage/thrift shopping?
I like to hit a bunch of stores in a row.  You have to be in the right mindset to dig through junk to find the treasures, so I have a route I take weekly that involved 5-7 stores.  I look forward to that day each week!

Is there one tip you could share that might help someone who is new to thrifting and vintage shopping?
Have an idea of what you're looking for before you start because it's so easy to get overwhelmed if you don't have a focus.  If you're looking for clothes, start there, and only after you have exhausted all the racks should you go check out the housewares or the furniture.

Thank you Seesaw Vintage for participating in this week's Vintage Love.
