When Susette and her husband brought this mid-century modern hutch into the shop to sell, they had barely made it in the door when they proclaimed, "This hutch survived a tornado."
I was all ears. It's an exciting occasion (at least in our lives) to learn that a vintage hutch isn't just a pretty face, but has a colorful history too.
The hutch originally belonged to Susette's aunt and rode out the 1979 Red River Valley tornado outbreak in her home. Luckily, Susette's family members came out uninjured and the hutch remained intact although other property was damaged.Read More
Shopping vintage. A topic obviously near and dear to us Ashleys' hearts. We both quit our professional day jobs to run a vintage home shop afterall. Why is shopping vintage so wonderful you ask? Here's why!
1. You need old and new in your home. Ever go into a house and it feels like a catalogue or, on the other extreme, a thrift store? That, my friends, is because every home needs both old and new pieces to look balanced and pulled together. While there are always exceptions, only having new pieces in your space leaves it looking sterile and unimaginative, whereas only having vintage can give off a grandma vibe. That's why it's so important to mix it up and let the pieces complement one another to achieve an optimal look. The new lends your home a modern and fresh feel whereas the vintage gives it soul and character. One without the other wouldn't be nearly as beautiful. Let them work together for you.Read More
