If you’ve been following me or my photography for a while, you are certainly aware that I love everything antique or vintage. My home is filled with them (or new stuff designed to match my antique furniture). I love the timeless mood of classic items, somehow it’s like they speak to me.
I also love the retro era, but my interest is limited in a few select items like cameras and radios.
I’m not a true collector nor a hoarder. I’m not looking for the most valued antiques either. I just want to own as many lovely and useful pieces as I can. They’re not purchased to be on display, I use the stuff I get, whether as photography props, furniture or accent pieces in the house. Also I love to find extra cheap fun pieces for my book cover photography portfolio. It’s really easy to go overboard and invest tons of money into props that you will end up using one or two times, so finding them for a couple of dollars is always nice. I can also resell them when I’m done playing with them!
