Old School Vintage Style

Now that we’re all grown up, back to school takes on a whole new meaning. For vintage lovers and collectors its an opportunity to seek out old school finds for our decor and fashion sense. Such pieces remind us of chalk dust, new crayons, class photos, gym class, science labs and typing class.

Classroom finds are always a great addition to a child’s room; a vintage desk, a chalkboard, educational school charts and flash cards add vintage charm. Same goes for the kitchen where a school clock and a chalkboard for memos bring a nostalgic warmth. Have fun with flash cards by spelling out words or names and use as wall decor.
