When I started thrifting less than a year ago I also started some new collections.
My collections are of items that I have always had a fondness of, but never knew how to find them…until I started thrifting.
One of my favorite collections is my vintage fisher price collection.
These toys come from the days of my youth. I am not sure I ever had any of them, nor do I recall playing with any of them (although I am sure I did at some point), but they take me back to when I was a little girl.
I say it is my collection, but it is really for all of us…as are most of my collections.
The toys fill the shelves in the playroom (remember the playroom…something I thought we would never have).
The kids, most days, will pull the vintage fisher price off the toy shelves before they choose any of the newer toys.
For me, I love…
…the bright colors…
…it all just makes me happy!
I imagine that these toys will go into the attic (or my creative cottage) to be stored until my own kids have children of their own.
And, just like my kids do when they visit their grandparents in New York, they will play with the same toys that generations before them have been playing with.
When I come across duplicates of what we already have I put them into colton+cadence or post them for sale on instagram.
If you are interested in starting your own collection you can follow @coltoncadence on instagram or visit the vintage playroom section of colton+cadence on etsy!
home is…collecting something that makes you (and your home) happy.
