Thrifty vintage : Dress your life

Round up: Thrifty vintage in the news

Here are a few vintage, thrift, and collectible news items from the past week. I hope if you haven’t seen them, you’ll enjoy them!

The comforts of home. An architecture professor and artist takes others’ ditritus and adds it to the assemblage that is his Buffalo, N.Y., home. I read this New York Times story first as text only with no photographs and found that the illustrations are essential. (Wednesday, Jan. 23)

Two shop features this week:

Have a little philosophical discourse to go with your junk hunt. An essay from the author of Flea Market Jesus briefly discusses the disenfranchised culture of flea market vendors and how that disenfranchisement relates to politics and religion. I’ll be picking up a copy of the book (can’t decide on print or digital), but you can get a feel for the book by reading  “Flea Market Individualists” in the Jan. 23 Christian Century (online by subscription).

Happy reading,
