The Things We Love

The Randolph Street Vintage Market is happening this weekend — their last indoor/outdoor show of the season. I’ll be there tomorrow, partnering with Scotchgard Brand to show people how to protect the things they love. I’ll be chatting with people, making a few videos, and checking out all the vintage awesomeness for sale. Come say hello!

I talk a lot about how to incorporate special things over time — it’s the idea behind my whole Making it Yours series. It applies to the furniture in our homes, to the clothes in our closets, to all of those interesting items we gather over time. One of my favorite things that I’ve had for years now is my owl purse.

Kate Spade Owl Purse

It’s just a thing, sure. A purse. But it’s a kooky purse that I love to bits and hope to either tote around when I’m an eccentric old lady (life goal), or pass down some day, should my kids want it. It’s mostly suede though, so it isn’t the hardiest of materials, and it has to make it through Chicago winters with all of the ice, snow, slush, and salt that accompany them. Scotchgard Protectors come in a range of products for carpets, fabrics, upholstery, suede, and leather too, protecting them from stains and water without changing the item’s look or feel. Treating my bag keeps it in good condition so it can last longer, because it’s got many more seasons ahead of it.

I’ll be sharing all my tips and tricks, you can check out some cool demos, and join the conversation by tagging your social posts and images using #LoveYourThings and #Scotchgard. See you there!
