I come from a long line of antiquers, yard-salers, and auction goers! As a child I spent countless weekends treasure hunting with my parents or grandmother at auctions, thrift stores, and flea markets. My parents are both retired now and are in full antique hunting mode. It is nice to have them as a resource as I embark on my own vintage venture with this shop! My partner in this shop and life (we said "I do" in July) is an art teacher. It's been fun to search for funky pieces together and have his perspective on which items to pick.
There is such beauty in treasuring the past and the items that reflect it! I hope that you enjoy looking through our shop and imagining the specific history of each item as much as we do. The name "An open road" seemed fitting for a vintage shop as it implies the endless possibilities of items and histories!
