People often ask me at Vintage shows what I collect and I can never answer since so much of what I collect is just based on if I like it. But, one thing I can say that I do collect is photos of the inside of people's houses.
I love finding vintage photos of interiors of houses with no one in the picture. It is kind of rare. I mean have you ever taken a picture of your living room or bedroom with no one in it? Most people haven't. I recommend it. I would love to have pictures of the house I grew up in now. Especially my bedroom, where no photos of people were ever taken.
I got these recently at the last Webfooters club meeting. This one below looks like maybe from the early 1940's? I'm not sure, but I love the plants and the wicker. Looks like a magazine layout.
This one is most likely from the early 1900's. I love find photos like this that show the way people showed off the photos and postcards that I now collect. This looks like it may be the bedroom.
I think I'll start a pinterest board for vintage interiors. Check out my boards if that interests you.
