I enjoy the simple mixture of old and new, it's always an interesting combination of textures, colors and design. I do extensive research on each piece in order to set an appropriate price for its age, style and condition thus providing an appropriate medium for everyone involved. Vintage is fun, quirky, rustic, delicate, soft and eccentric and this is what Notch Boutique is all about; all things vintage!
