Tag Archives: old suitcases

second-hand treasures.

With summer underway welcomes the abundance of flea markets and weekend garage sales. I love combining old, unique pieces with new, modern ones. Shabby chic is the name of the game! Here are some items I’ll be on the look out for:

Vintage suitcases. Stacking them (as shown) adds charm to any room.

Salvaged window panes. I am thinking DIY headboard project…

An old, weathered trunk. A re-purpose inspiration piece to serve as a unique coffee or side table…

Antique jewelry – especially cameo-style! It’s the perfect statement accessory to spruce up any ensemble.


Old jars. These function as an attractive stand-in for a vase to showcase fresh flowers, or simply a quaint approach to display dried pastas in the kitchen.

What are some second-hand finds you’re hoping to score this summer?
