We are Keisha & Jessie and we are the proprietors of Mint. Jessie is a visual artist who loves gardening. At any given point, she either has paint all over her or dirt and sometimes both. That's mostly because she gardens barefoot. I (Keisha) love tea. And more tea. And more tea. I drink black in the morning (first flush darjeeling), and white in the afternoon and red at night.
Our shop is both vintage goods as well as refurbished furniture. We believe you can see a difference in how vintage/antique furniture wears and looks over time versus the new breed. A lot of furniture made today is composite wood and veneer. The old stuff, on the other hand, is all wood and made to last. Pushing it into a modern direction with elbow grease, paint, and upholstery seems like the right thing to do.
