Love Letters

Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend Listopad your ears. We're plotting a new feature that we're really excited about.

We're obsessed with all things vintage and secondhand. This should be obvious by now. We shop a lot and we find a lot of beautiful things, both for ourselves and for our shopping parties. We're assuming that if you read this blog, it's because you like shopping for beautiful things, too, and you freak out as much as we do when you come across them. We're shoppers that appreciate the challenge of finding genuinely cool and interesting things in an economy where cookie-cutter looks are served to the masses, and we want to celebrate the fact that individuality is accessible—if you know where to look.

We know that you guys know where to look, and we know how exciting it is when you find something really unique. Why not use us a platform to shout it to the world? We want to see what our readers are finding. The next you're at a thrift store, flea market, vintage shop, or consignment boutique, and you find something—an item of clothing, a weird little tchotchke, a full set of La Fonda del Sol Bandas Goblets, anything—take a pic and send it to us along with a description of the item. Tell us where you found it, why it caught your eye, how it's going to change your life, or any other information that you feel is pertinent. Send us your love letters, kids! We love hearing from you!
