Back To School - The Vintage College Apartment

Its time for some serious back to school shopping for college students. Along with the normal stack of books, paper, electronics and technology - they will be in need of some sturdy furniture and fun accessories for their unique apartment or dorm decor. The college years are great for decorating with fun and funky treasures to express individuality.

One of the best places to look is the local vintage or antique store. Many shops carry vintage furniture that is reasonably priced and is well made compared to the pressed wood they'll find in new retail shops. Many of the pieces are already painted, which adds character to a room, and also means they can repaint year after year to fit their changing decorating taste of the semester!
