Something Old, Something New
The past is what we make of it. We have the ability to pull whatever we like out of any memory or story highlighting the best parts and leaving the rest behind. It’s funny how things that we remember from our own childhoods could end up as a piece of history as well. It was as if we never expected time to catch up with us but when it did we had to laugh realizing that eventually, all things become vintage.
We live in a great time however because with the world the way it is there is a mass movement of people who believe in saving vintage items rather than throw them away and we guarantee the earth is grateful for this mentality! Sometimes we refurbish, other times preserve items exactly as they are. Many of us want to wear vintage outfits or decorating our homes with timeless furniture. We might find ourselves sitting in front of an old vanity set wondering how many others had looked into the same mirror but in a completely different decade than our own.
Patricia Bowles’ owner of Winnie B’s Vintage Emporium is an incredible character with an in-depth knowledge of each item she sells.
