Thank you for visiting Dwelling on the Past! My name is Sarah and I'm so glad you're here.

I've been thrifting since I was a kid; my dad is a lifelong collector who never could resist a "garage sale this way" sign, and he passed this trait on to me. I still remember paying a dollar for a VHS copy of Heathers as a kid and watching it until the tape fell apart. (Not the most appropriate movie for a 12-year-old, but it was a different time!)

Established in 2021, DOTP offers thoughtfully-curated vintage and secondhand home goods. In my shop, you'll find a perfect mix of thrifted treasures, vintage items, and refurbished furniture pieces curated for the colourful and classic home.

Happy shopping!
