Whether you are looking for something vintage that has not been made for some time, or something that has recently been handmade, you will be sure to end up with something that is one of a kind. When you only buy things from mass-produced sources, it is easy to loose the unique and meaningful qualities behind your investment. An original item is uncommon, and will therefore bring out an original response from those who see it.
A great site to check out one of a kind things is ETSY. Here are a few items from The Final Touch Vintage and K and M designs.
