1. Trust your gut. There is nothing worse than dreaming about
the finds you left behind.
2. Use the pieces you buy. In doing so, you are only adding to
their historical and emotional value.
3. Just one piece of antique or
vintage furniture can transform a whole room. It can be a slow
process finding the right mixture of pieces from different eras -
be patient and don't be disappointed if you don't find something on
every treasure hunt.
