Do ask about a piece’s history, who designed it, if it’s original. Don’t buy from someone who can’t give you an answer. Do expect wear, vintage pieces are 50+ years old they will show some signs of use. Don’t accept items that are beat up, broken, or in poor condition. – Elle Greene, AustinModern.com MidCentury Vintage dealer, Austin Texas, Austin, TX, USA
