finding treasure !!!

I love scouring flea markets and antique stores, and not because I'm an antique collector enthusiast or a collector of anything for that matter - it's just the thrill of hunting for that one special find and knowing exactly where you're going to place it when you get home. 
But for many of us who can't get to flea markets or haven't the time to go to antique stores, visit P.O.S.H online, for one of a kind or limited finds that appeal to any pocket book. They have an amazing selection of antique Hotel silver, french linens, toys, accessories and timeless treasures yet to be discovered. If you're lucky enough to live or visit Chicago stop by their shop in person, I'm sure it will be quite the experience !

  1. Yeah i totally get you on this one, i have fond memories of going to junk shops in Orpington UK with my dad when i was little, he was an excellent carpenter who often visited junk shops finding old pieces of furniture, taking them home and lovingly bringing them back to life. I love both sets of glasses shown here by the way :))
