Vintage Halloween decorations
True vintage Halloween decorating buffs won’t want a new home full of new furniture if you give it to them, save for cash to buy more old stuff. But vintage Halloween decoration with vintage has its own pros, cons, and inevitabilities. Here are some truths about antique jewelry:
You gotta keep things cleaner for vintage Halloween decorations
Living with vintage means you have to clean up more than the people who buy everything new.
When a new home with new things gets a little dusty, it just looks a little dusty.
When an old house with vintage Halloween decorations gets dusty, it doesn’t just look old and dusty. It looks older and dirtier. Even if it’s not for you, it will be for your guests. They will present a musty, musty smell and years of caked dirt, even if it’s nothing more than five minutes, and a rag can’t fix it.
You won’t always save money
Buying vintage Halloween decorations, even buying antiques, is often much cheaper than buying a list or hardware store, but not always. It depends on what you buy and how much work he needs.
Take vintage upholstery, for example. If a product requires new springs, new cushions, new padding, and new fabric, the final cost may be more than low to the medium quality new product.
So is it worth it?
perhaps if you choose a quality serving with good lines and a solid frame. But what if your goal is to save money in addition to getting a great vintage Halloween to look? Choose an item with a usable fabric, or an item you can make yourself.
Some people assume you are broken (or cheaper)
When you shop for furniture at sales, flea markets, thrift stores, and out of stock sales, some people in your life will inevitably think that you are broke. But they’ll assume that even if you buy your vintage Halloween decorations from 1st house and posh antique stores, ignore them.
Just say “thank you, but no, thank you,” when your aunt tells you about easy funding for an 18-piece set on the cheap furniture network. And absolutely refuse when a friend offers you a store catalog cover last season. You know, the one her child is adorned with magic markers. In her opinion, it’s still better than your old stuff.
A time capsule could be a prison
When your home or favorite environment reflects a particular period or style, it’s easy to go into time capsule mode. At first, you are just in awe that you can find more of what you have / love, but soon you start to feel like you cannot mix with anything. Talk about how to take the joy out of vintage Halloween decorations.
Remember, you are not living in a museum or on a stage.
Let’s say you buy a modern 1970s house (complete with diagonal wood siding on the outside) and find a delightful retro pitting group (this period is said to be cutaway) for a sunken living room. Does this limit you to the art of polyester rags and strings when it’s time to accessorize?
There is no reason in the world not to put a Danish Art Nouveau rug on the floor and hang a Japanese screen with six panels on a large wall. If it looks good together and you like it, you can do it.
