We Columbusites? Columbusers? have some damn good vintage/antique shops all around this fine city. For the sake of my bank account I don’t let myself go very often, but when I do I always come back with something that I absolutely COULD NOT live without. I’m a big fan of mid-century modern design as well as mod graphic patterns so I’m constantly on the look out for interesting vintage finds to add to our home.
One of my favorite places to shop is Funky + Functional in the Short North. It’s a lovely little shop with a little bit of everything. We have a cute chair in our living room that I bought there last year as well as several knick knacks around the house. I’m a sucker for vintage kitchen canisters. I want them all. They also have a small collection of vintage clothes and a decent sized jewelry collection. Last year for my birthday Andy bought me several jewelry pieces and a cute little jewelry box to put them in and they are all so lovely.
If you are ever in the area, you should definiitely check out Funky + Functional. It’s such a fun little place to shop and the staff is so sweet. You’ll love it.
