If I had a choice to buy something from a new Gucci Collection or Vintage shop, I would definitely go for the second option, without a doubt! And not because I do not like Gucci but because my passion for vintage clothing, accessories and interior pieces is so strong that I’m ready to trade any new item there is!
My Top 3 rules for Vintage Shopping:
Going for classic pieces is always a win! No matter how much you’re ready to spend on something really worthy – it will always be in style and match pretty much everything.
Look for the items that are in great to good condition. As much as I love pieces that hold a story to tell and have character to them, I also want them to look presentable and eye-catching.
This is why we love vintage in the first place! I literally cannot stand wearing something that EVERYONE has!! (Remember that Gucci T-Shirt?!!) Find the pieces that represent you specifically!
Vintage Shopping can be exciting and stressful at the same time. It is very important to find credible suppliers, such as KOBALIYA.
I love shopping there for accessories and clothing. As far as interior / design pieces go – yard sales and fairs is the way to go!
