Touring England in June provided a chance to see vintage shops across the pond. The good news for you and me is that most items for sale in the UK were pretty pricey. Many items were similar to what we see in Minnesota shops. In fact, it was interesting that decorating and collecting trends seem to be international. One example were the antlers, animal skulls and stuffed critters in London. The popularity of bunting has definitely made its way to the U.S. recently too. It was great fun to explore quirky shops – just as it is here, but it really made me appreciate the wealth of vintage treasures available close to home. Thank you to all the local vendors who make shopping a pleasure!
