We won’t deny that we are vintage junkies – we’re writing this post from a vintage shell chair right now! But flea markets and antiques fairs have a new vantage point appealing to the eco friendly market, especially in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Buying vintage, especially for large items like furniture is technically more eco than any other earth-saving options out there. You’re buying something pre-owned, so in your new ownership nothing needs to be manufactured, and you’re saving that item from going into landfills.
