A step inside blogger Christine Keely’s West Philadelphia apartment reveals a stunning collection of found art, thrifted treasures and antique heirlooms that would make any vintage-lover drool.

Sourced from thrift stores and flea markets around her neighborhood, Keely’s collection is in constant rotation – as she scores new items and sells the old ones in her Etsy shop, Black Oak Vintage.

In addition to curating a veritable history museum inside her home, Keely features handmade projects and inspiration on her blog by the same name.

Made for the thrifting pro’s recently-rented studio and showroom, this free-standing clothing rack is a stunning solution for small-space living and puts cheap store-bought alternatives to shame.

“Before this, many of our clothes for sale had been stored in my own closet, so I can’t tell you how ecstatic I am to get them out!” she writes of the project on her blog. “I just love the industrial elements of the clothing rack against the delicate row of vintage clothes.”
