Antiquing lends authentic individuality and quality

A product with quality encapsulating a story behind it surpass any mass produced item that everyone has

I made a visit to The Met this weekend, as my parents visited me from out of town, and I rallied a game-plan to show I them I was raised with culture and no I don’t lay around my apartment on typical weekends drinking champagne in my pajamas

I was more intrigued than I expected, no it was not my first trip, and yes I take it for granted that this place is literally down the street from my apartment

But inspiration was up the walls…literally

My personal favorites are the Roman, and Medieval areas


This weekend I also went antiquing with my parents at the Chelsea Flea Market

It was an adventure rifling through finds….
Nostalgia of another time set in when we saw a few pieces…

 As a former Marylander this pin made me particularly excited….

“You used to call me on my (tele)phone”

I grew up in a household with a mother of pristine taste, derived from class, culture and timelessness
