Sunday Antique Market Finds

On Sundays, I love to visit the St. Lawrence Antique Market. I often pop by and browse until something rare and unique catches my eye. I love all things vintage and antique. Unfortunately, my boyfriend thinks the words vintage and antique apply strictly to things that are dirty and undesired by others. The first thing he always asks me is how old the items are and if they have been sanitized lol! Anyways, this week I got extra lucky and found two things I love. I found this makeup and perfume tray from the 50s. I love the details in the metal, the mirrored top and the three lipstick holders. 
I also purchased these deep blue bottles. I love their rich colour and the way it changes when light reflects through them. They are great sitting on a window sill and will make great vases.
 What's your take on things that are antique and vintage? Are you an antique market girl and collector like me or do you prefer things that are new and modern?

I love both! I have an antique dresser that apparently came across the U.S. on a covered wagon. Who knows how I ended up with it. I love it though. I think my husband would agree with your boyfriend...He thinks vintage or antique means that it is dirty, broken, etc. I will never part with my dresser (he has never asked me to either...good thing because I won't!!!!)
