The Accidental Hunt for Vintage Home Decor

The Accidental Hunt for Vintage Home Decor

Last year my best friend and I hit the road from Queens, New York to Orange, Connecticut , for no other reason but to waste our time together and of course to find vintage goods. We figured there’s gotta be cooler things outside of New York;lets say we were pleasantly surprised.

Upon arriving to our first shop destination, Savers, we knew right away that clothing was secondary.Savers’ knick knack section, in almost every location, could quite literally have their own Disney Theme Park. Wow,just typing that made me giddy.This day in particular we stumbled across some oddly interesting decor and some retro earrings we couldnt pass up!

Our second stop was at a Mom and Pop thrift store called Garage Sale Store. And as the name suggests , it was exactly that. It truly looks like you stepped inside a 3 car garage/warehouse from the 60s. This place was authentically vintage. They did carry a small clothing section but we definitely were blown away by their furniture and *NSYNC bobble heads!

If you ever wanna check our these shops for yourself, Savers is still open but I’m sad to report that Garage Sale Store is permanently closed (according to Google).
