One of my favorite vintage shops in the area, Malena’s Vintage, is tucked on a corner of semi-sleepy West Gay Street in West Chester. I’ve found some incredible pieces there, like this studded leather jacket and this crinoline slip; owner Malena has a great eye and, if you’re lucky, she’ll take you into her next-door showroom, where she stocks pieces that haven’t yet made it onto the store floor. Tomorrow, though, she’s opening up this secret showroom to the public — and discounting everything.

Monday Obsession: Territory Hard Goods Vintage Footstool

There’s nothing quite as thrilling as a major vintage find. I scored one back in 2008 — a cool armchair on the side of some road out by Princeton — and somehow manhandled it by myself into the back of a convertible I was driving (I forget how or why I was in this car, because I do not own a convertible). It was winter and I froze the whole way home, but it was worth it because the armchair had potential and I would reupholster and refinish it back to its pre-street-side glory. Only I haven’t quite gotten around to it yet. (Secret: I don’t think I ever will.)

This is the problem with less-than-perfect vintage goods: It seems like a good idea, the whole coolly artisanal upcycling thing, until you realize you have no time to actually do it. Which is why I turn to Territory Hard Goods, a Kensington-based company that sources cool vintage furniture and home accessories (and cleans up/reupholsters when necessary). You can buy their finds on the Territory Hard Goods Etsy store, or find them at local flea markets like Clover Market. A tip: Follow them on Instagram to be the first to know about new products. Another tip: Don’t bother to pick up armchairs on the side of the road unless you really, really plan to do something with them. Read more »
