Perhaps it is because I feel younger when surrounded by things that show their age more than I do, but I always feel more natural when in a space that has a few "ye olde" elements thrown in the mix. When I was at Penn State I spent many a Saturday combing through local antique stores and now have several collections to prove it; vintage canning jars, maps and birdcages to name a few.
Great Stuff By Paul is a wonderful website that saves you the afternoon. Organized by material or room, they make it easy to find milking stools, old sap bucket or Parisian bistro chairs. And the prices are unbelievably low - think budget Wisteria.
