Vintage Shopping Tips

Vintage shopping is one of the best ways to add well made clothing and jewelry to your closet, without spending a lot of money. When looking for places to find vintage items at great prices, search online and in local papers for estate sales and plan to attend several in the same area. Here are my top tips that have made my searches successful:

1. Make a day of it, bring some sandwiches and a friend along.
2. The best deals to be had on are the last day, and the last few hours of the sale.
3. Don't be afraid to haggle, also if purchasing more than one item, ask for a single price for all items.
4. Don't forget that hidden treasures are often found in piles of costume jewelry.

Here are some items from my ETSY shop that I found at estate sales;
