Most of you know I love to check out vintage stores and thrift shops whenever I can, so when one of my friends told me about Jillian Harris’ latest venture, Charlie Ford Vintage, I knew it would pull at my heart strings. If you don’t recall, Jillian was on both “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette,” as well as “Extreme Makeover Home Edition.” Most recently, her witty and fun-loving personality, not to mention great sense of style, can be seen on “Love it or List It Vancouver.”
Charlie Ford, created by Jillian, along with her cousin Tori Wesszer, and friend Alyssa Dennis, is an online shop that was born out of the idea of curating one-of-a-kind vintage finds, a passion shared by all three women from a very young age.
Named after Tori’s son, Charlie Ford is a unique concept in that items are one-of-a kind. If you fall in love with something, it’s best to act fast because when it’s sold, it’s gone for good (no diddle-daddling around!). New items are listed on Monday and theme sales launch every Thursday, with the current one being Vintage Weddings.
Items, such as furniture, lighting, jewelry and art, are sourced from around the world at the best prices that can be found. If you’re looking for a real bargain, check out the Basement Sale where shoppers are given one last chance to pick up items at a discount.
Although I’m smitten with quite a few items, there are some that I can’t seem to get out of my head like this industrial metal jewellery cabinet, Royal typewriter, and Louis Vuitton monogrammed suitcase (okay, perhaps a little out of my price range, but beautiful!).
Want $10 to put towards your first purchase? Let me know in the comments below and I’ll send you a membership invitation (you can earn $10 for referring your friends as well)!
Love hunting for vintage items as much as I do? Any Charlie Ford items that catch your eye? I’d love to know.
