Ok, on I'm my way to Bella Rustica here in Nashville today. It's a modern day barn sale with lots of vintage stuff!
So, since that's on my mind, here's the qotd!

Do you prefer vintage or new items?

For me, I'm a mixture of the two. I like new things mixed with some of my favorite vintage pieces! I go overboard on buying vintage things because I know I see it once, I won't see it again, unlike new things you see in the store! But I usually only buy things that I really really love.

Oh my, wish I had known about this event! Sounds SO cool!! I'm totally a mix. I love some vintage pieces, but (as silly as it sounds) I have to be really careful about what I bring into my house. We have asthma and allergy issues here, and whatever I buy has to pass the "smell" test! If it has that old, musty smell, I have to pass. However, lots of things are just fine once I clean it with Murphy's Oil Soap. Anyway, HAVE FUN today!!!

I like a little of both!

Bella Rustica sounds amazing! Is it an annual event? Tracy... sounds like a future road trip! Smile

Its been years since I could afford to buy things to update or accessorize the home. I really like a mix of older and modern. Sort of shabby chic, but more updated. I also like to hit Ben Franklin and create my own pieces too. Of course its been awhile. We don't have a place like you mentioned here in Seattle that I know of, your lucky.

Sounds like an event I'd love to attend!!! Wish they had something like that around here!
I like to mix up vintage and new stuff too, although the new is usually vintage looking anyway!!

I'm a mix as well. My mind (wrong as it is) always skips to the whole steampunk look when I think of vintage. But I know vintage can also look beautiful and trendy and not so creepy. Not a fan of those angels and dolls either but I love the look a vintage handle can give to a newer dresser or cupboard. Or a vintage mirror put in a bathroom with more modern accessories.

I love to mix as well but I think I am more of a shabby vintage.

I also like to make old look new.
