Distance wise, I only live about 45 miles outside of New York City, but sometimes I feel like a real “country mouse”…especially when I hear my city friends that still live in Manhattan talk about my area as a haven for really fabulous tag sales, thrift store finds and all sorts of amazing antiquing. The truth is, just like I’ve never been to the top of the Empire State Building, despite having lived in New York City for many years, I’ve never gone to any tag sale or antiquing up here in our quaint little hamlet. This week, I did manage to make it over to the New Canaan Thrift Shop (rumored to be one of the best sources around for great little vintage finds) however, I came out empty handed. Inspired by Hillary Thomas, and her knack for styling beautiful vignettes using vintage pieces, I’m now thinking this summer will be the perfect time to put my popping tag skills to the test. Have any of you ever scored some really great finds this way?
