I guess the Twin Cities Really Loves Vintage and Feminism

Ever have one of those weeks that is super rewarding professionally, but just wipes you out physically and mentally?

Oh good. I’m glad I’m not the only one.

Last week, I participated in two markets, the FeMNist Night Market and the Refind Vintage Market. The number of people that attended these events was awesome. I talked to a lot of different folks about macramé, mid-century style, event planning, sourcing, small business startups, etc.

At the FeMNist Night Market, I met so many talented women, who are doing so many amazing things.

And I was just blown away by all the vintage lovers I met at Refind Vintage Market. There are a lot of people (like me) that love vintage style in the Twin Cities. It did my heart good.

And then in between those markets, I sold and delivered a table and chair set to a lovely family out in Brooklyn Center, MN.

And now this lady, well, she’s TIRED. So please forgive the short blog this week.

I know we've all been there.

I know we've all been there.

But thanks again to everyone that came out to the markets, and be on the lookout for new stock in the next couple weeks. I finally made some room in my house to buy some new pieces.

If there is anything in particular you are looking for, please feel free to reach out via email or social media. I may be able to help you find that perfect vintage piece you’ve been looking for.

Alright, I’m headed back to the couch for some much needed r&r.

Hi friends.

It’s hard to believe, but our digital doors have been open for 1 year today. Woo hoo! Cue the streamers and popping champagne bottles.

Ok. Ok. Now that we’ve all settled down a little bit, I wanted to look back at some of my favorite upcycled furniture and vintage home décor pieces.

Who could forget the Make It Your Family Farmhouse, Upcycled Trestle Table? I was lucky enough to have my dad build me a similar table for my dining room. And then my dad built another beautiful table for the shop, and a very nice family in Chanhassen made it theirs. This table was definitely a labor of love.

The Shoe Collector Curio Cabinet and Upcycled Wood Dresser was one of the first pieces listed in the shop. I love how the copper drawer fronts contrast with the blush pink chalk paint. Oh and the marble paper lined shelves and black and white knobs. If I had a bigger master bedroom, you can bet I would have a piece just like this one. I sold this piece to a very sweet woman who told me her two year old said, “Pretty,” when he saw it.

The Everything is Coming Up Champagne Vintage Carved Dresser is one of my favorites for all the amazing carved details. And I just love how raspberry chalk paint compliments the reds and browns of the wood tone. This dresser sold to a lovely couple who had just moved into a new apartment in St. Paul.

I had some more help on this one! My mother made this Knotty by Nature Vintage Macramé Plant Hanger Curtain back when macramé was first popular. I love it because it is such a unique, well-made piece. And it went to a fellow maker in Minneapolis, so I know it is being well loved.

The moment I saw these marble and brass candlesticks, I knew we needed the pair for the shop. These candlesticks didn’t even make it to the website. I sold these to a customer at the Minne-Mile NightMarket put on by Minneapolis Craft Market in June.
