The key to great design is seamlessly mixing vintage and new items together to give your home a cohesive design with individual style. If you are like me you can’t resist a good flea market or garage sale to source the vintage and unique, but with school and fall activities starting, I am sure you already picture yourself running between after school activities and family dinners with little time or energy for much else. I have rounded up a couple of my favorite online market places to help you get your shopping fix and idea inspiration while relaxing in the comfort of your own home. So pour yourself a glass of wine and enjoy the shopping!
