WHO: Originally from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Lily Barfield relocated to Houston post-college and dabbled in a few creative fields—including working for an artist and at a home decor and antiques store—before launching her own concept: Lily’s Vintage Finds. Through Instagram, she invites followers along as she scours for treasures “everywhere from the South of France to Southern flea markets.” 

WHAT: Barfield shares her exciting sourcing adventures. She then sells her one-of-a-kind finds—antique furnishings, vintage crystal, unique decor, lighting, mirrors, tableware and barware—on her website.

WHY: Barfield grew up perusing estate sales and antique malls with her mother in treasure troves like New Orleans. After moving into her first home, she began spending her free time seeking items for her house that were just as special as those she found while growing up. She launched Lily’s Vintage Finds to showcase these discoveries to friends and family. Her account quickly took off, allowing her to pursue the venture full time. 

IN HER WORDS: “My passion for this business is constantly reinvigorated when I find a gorgeous, centuries-old piece of furniture and give it a new life. The craftsmanship and attention to detail that went into making some of these furnishings is incredible. Sharing their beauty and history—and seeing people truly gasp at how special they are—inspires me every day!”
