Vintage collector and interior designer Bob Richter shows us how to find the best vintage treasures and how living with them brings beauty, comfort and personal meaning into our homes. Bob Richter has been thrifting and collecting vintage treasures for more than forty years, since the age of six. With a true passion for antiques, or any object with a past and a story, Richter speaks to our desire to surround ourselves with belongings that impart beauty and meaning to our lives. Drawing on his years of experience as a stylist and interior designer, Richter takes us through a trove of beautiful historic homes, illustrating how to live stylishly with our vintage finds and collections (hint: buy what you love, express yourself, and don't be afraid to mix periods!). A celebration of the art of thrifting and decorating with antiques of every era, Vintage Living is a full-service guide to treasure hunting, from flea markets, antique shows, and estate sales to country auctions, yard sales and the on-line marketplace. Richter also imparts hard-won practical tips, such as how best to negotiate and haggle. With chapters on vintage entertaining and cooking; vintage holiday décor for all seasons (including Valentine's Day, Easter, and Halloween among others); giving vintage gifts; embracing vintage ways (write letters, repurpose and recycle); and caring for your old treasures, this bible of vintage living will inspire you to take a personal and creative approach to your décor.
