{ de va vu }

April 13, 2015

This weekend I took a little shopping trip for a client who it opening a new space. She asked me if I’d help her find a few items that were unique, but didn’t want to go to overboard on the vintage feel. I never imagined that being paid to share my personal style would be a part of my job, but I love that it has become such a large part of it.


I stopped by De Ja Vu in Delaware to see what they had around. De Ja Vu’s items are of a kind so if you happen to go on a day when it’s picked over, I definitely recommend a revisit. It’s where I pick up a lot of things for my home and office. First timer? Ask for Deborah, she’ll show you the ropes.

What you need to know about vintage shopping, is that it’s easy to get a little carried away. I always wonder through the store and snap photos on my phone of things that I love and then review.

I thought I’d show you a quick list of what I always keep an eye open for on a vintage hunt. See the list below- The trick for me is to pair the items with something a bit more modern. And always keep an eye open for something with a little bit of quirk: No: not these. Theeeese.
