Let's Time Travel- A Vintage Gift Guide

A Vintage Gift Guide

One of the last gift guide suggestions I recieved was for affordable vintage items, especially if it was a shop that sold other vintage items. I went to Etsy for the following gift guide as they are a great place to find fun, reasonably-priced vintage items. Please leave your other gift guide suggestions in the comments as well!

Vintage Childs Wooden Hanger- Doll Face

Buy it from the Etsy Shop IvoryBird for $14

From the Site: The sweetest little wooden hanger. The color is a charming turquoise and the little doll face is very dear. Good vintage condition showing age appropriate wear.

Does This Shop Have Other Vintage Items? Yes, a lot and quite a variety!

50s Wooden Swan Lake Music/Jewelry Box

Buy it from the TheVintageRoma for $24.32 US dollars (15 pounds I think...)

I love vintage items. I wish I hadn't thrown some stuff away when I was younger. Vintage has such a great look and can be well-maintained.
