Here at Big White Farmhouse, we have declared June to be the month of new vintage finds!
How would you describe your decorating style? For me, I love the combination of old and new. The look of layering vintage pieces with ones that have more modern lines is really cool to me. While the process of finding these unique items takes time (no running to the big box stores for immediate room gratification!), the effort is so worthwhile in the end.
This is why we opened the Vintage Finds section of Big White Farmhouse. It is our hope that we can do some of the leg work for you and you too can find some one-of-a-kind pieces to add to your own homes. The pieces I am most drawn to are very versatile. I also love the pieces that have some discoloring, maybe even a little chipping, because can you imagine the story they could tell?
Without further ado, here are just a few of the new pieces in the shop right now:
This white platter is made of milk glass and is so gorgeous! I loved the delicate, etched detailing around the edge. It is the perfect size to use as a catch-all by the front door for your wallet, keys and all the contents of your pockets! I can also imagine it in the bathroom as a stylish way to keep your makeup visible, but organized. It's a really great, versatile piece.
This hardcover book, entitled American Dream: A Novel, was published in the late 1930's. I love how the back page is covered with dated stamps...it must have been a popular choice! While this certainly is a great find for any book collector, I think it's a fun piece for summer decorating! I can picture it displayed with a few other Americana-inspired pieces on a hallway console. So fun for the fourth!
Where do I begin with these cloth napkins? They are a creamy white color and have the most beautiful detailing around the edges. They are perfect for special dinners and entertaining friends and family! I think they would especially fun paired with the Stamped Napkin Rings that we also sell at Big White Farmhouse.
You can find the rest of the new pieces in our Vintage Finds section and if you find something you love, don't delay! We only have one of each!
