A little vintage can go a long ways towards shaking things up when it comes to avoiding the cookie cutter style that's so easy to fall into when shopping at big box stores. For less than $25, you can pick up a unique piece that will add that extra bit of panache.
One of my favorite sources to shop for vintage is on Etsy. The prices are competitive, it's easily searchable and with so much to browse through you're bound to stumble upon something unique. While all of these picks are one of a kind (meaning they will sell out) they're a great source of inspiration and example of what's out there.
