The Vintage Modern shop Gets Some Street Cred

Customer Reviews, ReviewsPamela DeweyComment

Hi friends.

You ever have one of those super productive days where you feel like you’re conquering the world?

I had one of those days on Sunday. I put away laundry, washed dishes, scraped painted-over wallpaper (something I have been putting off for about 6 years), worked on an end table and made a fancy pizza.

Things I did not do. Write a blog. Crap. That I absolutely forgot.

With all that getting shit done, I didn’t look at my calendar and think, hey girl, you need to write a blog today. 

So this week’s blog is late. Sorry friends.

Back to that end table. I have been working on a bit of a living room/bedroom/entryway redesign at my house. It has been slow process because I am on a budget. Last week, I finally found a sectional in my price range.

Buying a sectional means I needed make some room. An end table needed to go, so I decided to give it a makeover to sell. So be on the lookout for that new beauty in the shop soon.

The sectional I settled on was one from an online store. (I looked on Craigslist many, many times in this search.) But I ultimately decided to go for a new sectional with a vintage look.

I was excited, but also nervous. I was buying a couch without ever getting to sit on it or see it in person.

But the reviews were good, and the website also had a chat feature. I was able to ask someone questions about the sectional, like the level of firmness. The representative told me it was a medium firm, which sounded about right.

I was also able to order fabric samples, which was helpful.

Without fabric samples, I might have ordered a hot pink couch because well, I could order a hot pink couch. After seeing the fabric in person, I knew hot pink wasn’t for someone who likes to drink wine (and occasionally spill it) or for Max Wiener (my dachshund). 

I decided to go with a dark charcoal grey with flecks of lighter grey. 

Now I am waiting for my sectional to be assembled and delivered. I still don’t know what my couch will feel/look like in person. But so far, I think I made a good decision.

But after such an extensive research process, it occurred to me that maybe the Vintage Modern shop needed to add a little street cred too.

So I added a Customer Reviews page to the site, which features pictures and feedback from some of our happy customers.

I get it.

It is scary to make a purchase online from a company you haven’t heard of before. You don’t know who that person is or what to expect.

So…hiiiiiiii!
