Week 3!!!

Posted May 26th, 2011 by admin and filed in Uncategorized

We are very excited to be heading into week 3 of our new venture!  And although we haven’t been so good about keeping up with the blog, we’ve been VERY good at stocking the store.  And as soon as we can get all our ducks in a row with this new schedule of ours, the blog will be a fun place to visit as well.

So, here are a few photos to give you an idea as to what we might have in store this weekend.  I say “might” because the goods seem to travel out the door just as quickly as we bring them in.  But turn over is good because that just means there’s always fresh inventory in store.

So don’t let the rain keep you away.  Come visit with us (you know how we love to talk).  As always, we are open Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 10-5.

Thanks for checking in, and…

Cheers to a vintage life well lived.

Daydreaming…

Posted May 17th, 2011 by admin and filed in Uncategorized

First off, I’d like to send out a huge “thank you” for coming out and supporting us during our opening weekend this past Friday and Saturday.  It was so fun to finally open our doors and show everyone what we have been working so hard at during the past few months.  We have tons of opening days photos to share, and will do so later this week.  So be sure to check back in a few days.

Now on to the weather;) As much as I love living in Chicago, this weather can really get the best of us.  After months and months and months of living indoors, trapped by the weather, we long for the warmth of the sun and air.  So, when spring has finally arrived and it’s still 50 degrees, I look to the ever-so-inspiring interwebs for my home away from home.  Today I am dreaming of living here…

I think it’s the white washed walls, touches of vintage in every room, pops of color, light airy window coverings, laid back beachy vibe that is calling my name.  And i’m pretty sure the beach is just across the road.  Vintage coastal living at it’s finest.  Hey, at least the sun is shining today!  When you’re from the midwest, you really are grateful just to see the sun, even if for just for a day.

Don’t forget to check back later in the week for some opening day photos and a few newly arrived goods to the store as well.  We like to change/add things daily just to keep ya’ll on your toes.  And well, it just makes life more interesting, right??!!

Thanks for checking in and…

Cheers to a vintage life well lived!

As i was spending some time reading a few of my favorite blogs, i found some beautiful vintage inspired interiors i thought i would share with ya'll.  They are beautiful little spaces and a great example of how adding a little vintage into your spaces can add character and personality.  I hope that you too find them inspiring.

And now it's back to business as usual…getting ready for opening day.  Although we are nearly there, we still have some finishing touches.  We are full of excitement and thrilled to be able to offer you touches of vintage and inspiration for your home.  So, please spread the word of our opening, and until May 13…

Cheers to a vintage life well lived.
