I have two approaches to vintage shopping: either I go out with a really specific item in mind (eg, little black dress, denim jacket, leather bag) and concentrate on just that; or I have a rummage and let the item find me! If you’re a vintage lover, do you have a strategy for making the most of used-clothing shops?
