Katie Souder's Profile

About

Welcome to Hardscrabble Boutique! I am a lover of vintage, a hoarder of trinkets, a non-stop crafter (seriously, my project list is completely unattainable), a salvager of the un-salvagable, a mediocre cook (although not lacking in enthusiasm and inventiveness), a delusional daydreamer, a book lover, a tea drinker, and a big-hearted people pleaser.

I work an office job by day, and hunt for vintage in my free time. I love the adventure that comes with hunting for vintage...I love making excursions to the nooks and crannies of Chicago's neighborhood thrift stores, junk shops, estate sales, or even the occasional alley! You never know what you'll find along the way, or what charming character you'll meet. I’m drawn to vintage because it’s fun, creative, and full of possibilities. I absolutely cherish anything that makes me or my home feel like a piece of art…

I absolutely cherish anything that makes me or my home feel like a piece of art.

Truth be told, I'm sometimes tempted to keep all of my magnificent finds, but I don’t have the closet space or the budget (lucky for you!). More importantly though, it would be a shame for these precious gems to go unnoticed or remain homeless, so it makes me extraordinarily happy to share them with you!

I only hope you can find something that speaks to you. Feel free to stop by or drop me a line anytime! I love hearing from my customers!
