Curated Things  is here to share my obsession with old, mid century, eclectic and vintage furniture. My name is Susan, and I’m very big on repurposing and refurbishing old things, and I will almost always choose an old vintage item (with a good story attached to it) over something brand new and shiny.  There are exceptions, but for the most part that’s what I prefer.

I’m forever on the hunt for the quirky, unusual and odd vintage things that catch my eye. Flea markets, thrift stores and garage sales are my friends.🙂  I tend to buy what I like without giving much thought to provenance or market value. If an item strikes a fancy with me, and the price is right, the item will usually find its way home with me.

I’m big on all kinds of DIY projects and luckily I married a man whose let’s me indulge my impulsive need to start all kinds of projects around the house, even when the last one might now be entirely finished. I get them all done eventually, but I think creativity is a process that can’t be rushed, so you have to jump when the inspiration strikes you, right?  I’ve even caught my husband bragging about how handy I am, so he can’t be too annoyed with me. 🙂
