Vintage Shopping

vintage stores are fun

Let’s talk about how my husband ruined the living room. Well, everything happened Sunday morning, I came back from the iFabbo conference so tired that my plan for Sunday was just to sit and watch The walking Dead all day long and maybe go out for some pad Thai from a local Chinese restaurant.

Jordan had different plans. He decided to wake up pretty enthusiastically (jumping and singing and all that stuff) and asked me to go to buy a new TV with him for the living room. At first I was like, ‘Sure!’ but then when we came back with this big TV I realized how funky it looks on our narrow skinny piece of furniture. Not to mention that I didn’t think about the old TV, that btw went directly to the bedroom.

I’m sure I will see the bright side one of these cold weekends this winter when I want to stay in bed and watch romantic movies all day long.

So my plan now is to look for a fun piece of furniture for the new TV and maybe move the current skinny bookshelf that I use as our TV furniture in the living room to the bedroom. For the style, I’m thinking something vintage and colorful might be interesting.

Wednesday morning I drove to San Jose to look for vintage stores and found “Park Place Vintage” it was such a happy place. The store has many items from the 50s and 60s and lots and lots of fun costumes to rent for Halloween, happy outfits, hats and cute necklaces.

Yes, a pink Tv!

I took some pictures to share, I thought, well since my husband just ruined the living room why not take advantage of the situation and go visit all the pretty local stores around.
