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!
I regret not buying this decapitated head on a dish
Door knocker earrings for $3.99! That's real ya'll
Are they children?Are they adults? We may never know
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!
Tennis racket mirrors? Add to cart
Cabbage patch kids: a childhood darling or nightmare?
An upholsterers' dream
Chris and Joey are the coolest ones on this shelf. No cap
Did I mention we documented this trip? Jump over to our YouTube video below where we show you the rest of our trip, including our dinner at a dope vegan restaurant and a $15 cheesecake that honestly still haunts us till this day.
