Samantha Staniszewski, the owner of Riverside Vintage Market, defined vintage items as pieces that are at least 30 years old, while she said antiques are at least 100 years old. Samantha described these pieces of furniture as being coveted by shoppers because they are one of a kind or at least one of a few. Samantha said you cannot easily find them online and you really have to go out searching for them. She said a lot of people enjoy the thrill of hunting for these items. Samantha said these pieces were made with high quality materials and fine craftsmanship. Her favorite aspect of some pieces is that they have a lot of history or a story of being passed down through generations of a family or having a lot of different owners over the years.
