About

Paddy Ridge Township farm girl with city sensibilities... need the green grass, garden and flowers out the back door and quaint restaurants and shops around the corner... lover of the Pacific NW, Mountain West and European villages... (Hmmm, I live no where near any of these places!)

Wife of a VERY patient man who pleasantly ignores my antique and vintage piles, and who is happy if the car can fit in the garage before winter... he hums the theme song from Sanford & Son when my truck pulls in the drive overflowing with more great finds...

Mom of three sweet kids and one devilishly sweet dog... identical twin to my best friend and treasure hunting partner... daughter, sister and friend to some really cool and creative women...floral designer by trade... antique and vintage dealer by hobby.

The name paddyridge…

The name paddyridge vintage comes from my parents and grandparents, and those who came before them; those who settled on rich Illinois farm land, worked hard every day, and attended the one room schoolhouse down the road. And yes, it was called Paddy Ridge School. It comes from a childhood of growing up on the farm with the good old things that really worked and lasted a lifetime. It comes from recognizing that sometimes those old things have a useful place in our homes today. I hope you enjoy browsing through my collection of useful old things as much as I enjoy finding them!
