The other day I was thumbing through Country Living and a big yellow industrial cart caught my eye. Turns out the owners bought it at Victory Vintage Home, just a few miles from my home in Atlanta (well, technically, it’s in Decatur). I have been meaning to tell you all about this special spot for awhile but keep forgetting.
Owner Lee Cuthbert keeps the shop stocked with amazing vintage items from the 1950′s-1970′s. There’s a bit of everything, from atomic to Scandanavian to kitsch. She also keeps beautiful design books and guides, stationary, great candles that are NOT ridiculously expensive (Diptyque, can you hear me? $45 is too much for a stupid candle. I don’t care how good it smells!), and other fun new gifts in stock. I scored an old Swingline stapler for next to nothing, a vintage Holiday Inn ashtray, an old book on the history of trains, some fabulous 60′s H&G magazines and this great white lamp.
I had my eye on the amazing Paul Cobb dining set pictured above – the chairs were in great shape and I loved the woven seats on them. I am also coveting these Danish chairs. They are so comfy and so similar to one my Mimi picked out when she redecorated the Maine house in the 1970′s.
You don’t have to live in Atlanta to browse Victory Vintage Home, you can get a preview right here.
