Think Outside The Mall, Shop Vintage...

Think Outside the Mall - Shop VINTAGE for the holidays...

Vintage, re-purposed, salvaged, or upcycled items
make great unique gifts...

I try to avoid the big chains store malls whenever possible, unless I'm looking for clothes. 
It's been months since I've been to one...

Working part-time in an antique mall, I usually find unique things ~ that were ONCE mass-produced yesteryear,
 but held up over the years.
Sometimes, items in the original box, sometimes not...

It's fun to hunt, you never know what you might find. 

There's something charming and sweet about the 
smaller boutiques and local stores ~ usually, you find more unique items
not mass-produced. Sometimes, handmade by local artists too.

Do you prefer to shop at smaller boutiques/shows or
antique shops for holiday gifts? Or the mall?

Thanks for stopping by!!! ♥

  1. I agree 100%....probably because I am on my way to being vintage myself! LOVE antique & junk stores!

  2. I have told my family to think charity shop pressies for me this year. My husband is so lucky - no diamonds, designer handbags, expensive perfume for me, just a rummage through the second hand goods and I'll be happy. xx

  3. Well, you already know what MY answer is! *winks*

  4. SADLY there aren't too many VINTAGE shops around here! :( I LOVED going into Antique shops when we lived in a more populated area!!!!!!!:)


Thank-you for your comments! I am so flattered that you stopped by! xo
