If you’re new to shopping at vintage stores, you might not know the bounty that awaits you. What type of things can you purchase at vintage stores? Here’s a list of just some of the treasures you can find at a local vintage or antique retailer:
Vintage and Antique Jewellery
From antique rings to vintage necklaces, vintage retailers offer a treasure trove of jewellery you won’t find anywhere else. Why buy vintage jewellery? Vintage jewellery is usually of higher quality than contemporary jewellery. That’s because they just don’t make jewellery like they used to. Vintage jewellery can also be an investment or collectible. Some pieces come with history, while others such as Art Deco rings are of an important time period. Many people even find engagement rings at vintage retailers.
Décor and Dining Items
Beyond jewellery, many vintage retailers usually offer a wide selection of décor and dining collectibles. Find items such as art pottery, art glass, sterling silver, jardinières, stemware, collectibles, and tableware. Whether you want to use these pieces in everyday life or display them as collectibles, vintage décor and dining items can be both functional and beautiful additions to your home.
Cynthia Findlay Antiques offers estate, contemporary and vintage jewellery, including a large selection of vintage rings.
