Over the years, we have taken turns squeezing plus ones around tiny apartment dinner tables. But this beautiful dining table I stumbled upon on My Blue Canoe is where I want to be sitting this year.

There’s a certain amount of risk that comes with diving into a new venture, no matter how excited you are about it. Peter and Scarlett, the duo behind Adverts Vintage, know this firsthand. Just over two years ago, they left the security of steady employment to dive into the vintage furniture industry. The risk was not without reward, and today they are the proud owners of a beautiful brick and mortar shop in the Gowanus neighborhood of Brooklyn. Upon entering the narrow space, you’re immediately surrounded by warm wood, high-polish finishes, and the clean lines of mid-century modern design. Welcoming and warm, Peter and Scarlett were happy to talk shop and divulge what they’ve learned along the way
