IN PURSUIT OF QUALITY & CHARACTER

Inspired by an eclectic mix of influences and styles. We rescue, repair, and restore quality vintage furniture pieces too lovely to cover with paint, and paint those pieces in need of a face-lift.

MY JOURNEY TO THIS EXACT LOCATION IN TIME

My love of vintage I inherited from my sweet Mama. In the early years, I did not enjoy the process of the junk hunt, antiquing, or finding vintage in the wild. I’m sure if you, or someone close to you is a connoisseur of vintage, you’ll understand the skill and fast reflexes required. I have many early memories of being dragged along to run errands. If my sweet lil Mama even thought for a moment, she caught a sideways glimpse of a sign that MAY HAVE read Yard or Garage Sale, she would swerve across three lanes of traffic just to make that turn into the neighborhood. Of course back in the day seat belts were provided in cars as a suggestion; in the backseat I would slide from one side of the vinyl bench seat to the other side of the car.

A lot of years later, a move from Washington to California, and a whole lot of changes I found myself living I a very (very) small apartment and enjoying all of the flea markets and estate sales in Southern California. Because my apartment was so small, I couldn’t keep buying and bringing home all my finds. It finally occurred to me to sell vintage online. It was perfect!

Fast forward to now, my husband Jerry, and I go on regular excursions in search of the next great vintage find. www.AtomicHostess.com
