Earlier in the week I shared my Favorite Finds of 2014.  Now it’s time for some wishin’ and hopin’.

Pursuing Vintage 2015 Wish List

When I go out pursuing vintage, I look for pieces that speak to me, that would work in today’s decor, and add interest to a space.  I don’t carry a shopping list.  But, in the back of my mind, there are always a few things I’m keeping an eye out for.  There are pieces for my own home that I’d like – as well as pieces that would be fun to offer through the Pursuing Vintage Shop.

In my own home, I’m on the look-out for a vintage classroom map.  I’d like the roll-down type, and preferably one that features either the entire US, Virginia, or Illinois (where we have family).

I’d also like a dining room table.  I found terrific faux bamboo dining chairs in 2014, and now I need a great table to showcase them.  I prefer a pedestal table – and oval would be best in my space.  Other than that criteria, I don’t really know what I’m looking for.  I think I’ll know it when I see it.  These tables are amazing, and I’d bring either of these home in a heartbeat.

I also want a pair of ram or ibex bookends.

For my bedroom, I’m looking for a unique, antique side table or small writing table.  Something a little rustic or primitive.  This one is amazing.

I’d also love to continue to stock the Pursuing Vintage Shop with amazing finds, and these would be so fun to find:

    I am right there with you on that sweet looking wish list! I have a similar wish for a new dinning table. Wishing you luck with the hunt! The hunt is always the best, is it not? I had great fun this past week, a friend of mine who runs estate sale let me have a little sneaky peak of one of her sales. Oh, it was the mother-load for smalls! Now I just need to get them cleaned up and listed. Happy Hunting in 2015!

    Have a great weekend!

    I can’t wait to see what you bring home in 2015, Kristen! That wheat table is show-stopping, and if you find that wishbone chair, you can bring it straight to my house. 🙂
