About

It was on the porch of my Great Grandparent's home in Leonard, a small town in East Texas, when the vintage bug hit me and as a young girl, I sat in amazement at the stories he would tell about certain items in his smokehouse and frame house. Papa was a tall, big boned man. I was at his feet on the wooden and rickety porch. He told me of farming and drought. He talked of healing miracles and the story behind Uncle Lee, a man who never married after his finance was killed in a carriage accident. This is when the vintage exploration started. Their home was full of old dolls and Santas, doilies, paintings and garden bonnets. I was a bright-eyed and curious great granddaughter.

Now, we are celebrating seven years of being on the huge marketplace we call Etsy. I have my Great Grandparents to thank for my vintage enthusiasm.

As you look through these items, you can follow your heart and remember a simpler, less complicated time as you explore fashion, antiques, collectibles, art and authentic treasures. Vintage means 20 years and older so that puts the item at 1996 or before. Our motto is rescue, preserve, and recycle.

Now for a visual of where we hold our merchandise. The metal barn is one of three that sits on an old dairy farm with rolling hills, deer, wild turkeys, coyotes and fog. Outside the barn, you will find bluebirds, doves, and cardinals. Inside the barn, let your eyes scan every corner for Cajun pirogues, farm tools, sofas, dining tables, old frames and fishnets. You will discover one 1950 Ford tractor, cypress wood, boxes for shipping, camping gear and one of a kind collectibles. In another metal barn, we are restoring a 1946 Chevy truck. There are two 1946 Chevrolets housed in this barn. The one being redone and a parts truck sit side by side. I just love the original chrome grill on these '46 trucks.

At one time in my life, I was a teen pilot, an editor for a biblical scholar, an advertising agency owner, copywriter, television commercial producer, grant writer and hurricane recovery coordinator. I bring a vibrant spirit to untouched attics, garages, basements, adoptive children and pets.

The pages in my shop reflect a personal collection of old churches, family barns and forgotten spaces. Listings and images are as accurate as possible. As with all things vintage, there will be imperfections, aging spots, loose threads, some wear from twenty years on this planet and that is what I find intriguing!

International Buyers (outside the USA): Please just let me know if you’re interested in an item and I will estimate shipping charges to your country then add it to the listing.

Rocky Springs Vintage aims for 100% customer satisfaction. Please contact me if there is a problem with your item within 3 days of receipt. Most items are shipped with Insurance; therefore, if an item arrives damaged, let me hear from you. You should save all packing and all damaged merchandise in order to assist in the claim. Shipping charges are non-refundable.
