I've never been a fan of places like Value Village. To me, walking in is like stepping into a big warehouse where old things are just lumped together on racks. I'm not willing to put the effort into this "thrifting" that everyone talks about. I recently strolled into Valley Antiques in Hamilton and was pleasantly surprised at what an independent shop can do.

There's something charming about a bit of organized clutter. Displays organized to showcase, intrigue, and occasionally go "hey, I have that...I wonder how much my old crap is worth!" They really don't make stuff like they used to.

  1. I love thrifting, but it does take quite a bit of effort. Antique shops are fun too if you want to browse trinkets and furniture, not so much if you are looking for clothing (most antique shops if they have clothes they're too pricey compared to the thrift store). I do love antique shops for vintage jewelry though.

  2. Funnnn! I'm on the hunt for an awesome 50s radiogram to give to my boyf on our wedding day, I need to check out some vintage stores!

  3. Independent shops are the best for thrifting!

  4. This is something I really need to do! I love looking at old antiques and like you, I really think there's just something about organized clutter that's makes for a nice display.
