There are many reasons why one may purchase retro or vintage furniture. You may do so largely on practical and affordability grounds, given that it is, after all, such a good way to obtain decent-quality furniture for less. Other buyers, though, may be most motivated by the opportunity to bring together various furniture items that complement each other visually.
When you’ve got vintage homewares hanging around such as lamps, curtains, furniture, teapots or artwork, it can be tempting to simply whack them on eBay or Etsy in the hope that they’ll make a bit of cash – or for that matter, to get your coat on and sell them at an outdoor market or car boot sale.
Many people have dreamed of leaving their 9-5 job to start their own vintage clothing business, but building a successful business in such a competitive marketplace in no easy task. It takes, passion, focus, hard work and dedication.
