Announcement Based in Portland, Maine, we love collecting and restoring vintage objects and well-used furniture, objects with a story. And sometimes we like to pass them on to continue that story. Thanks for stopping by!

Brooklyn Transplants, Aspiring Mainers.
We left behind lives in the food industry and design world, respectively, in NY and have spent 5 years building a slower, more mindful life here in Maine. Our home is full of vintage and re-purposed items, both decorative and some in use everyday; at work in the kitchen, keeping us warm in the Maine winters, and taking us around the state (we have two '93 Volvo 240s). We love collecting unique items and tools for our home, but also being resourceful by mending and repairing discarded items needing a little work.
We decided to open this shop to help my mom clear out some long-held items and clothes in her home, and to help us let go of some of the items we too have been holding on to, as well. As I sew a lot, you'll find occasional handmade items (often out of vintage fabrics), and sometimes craft supplies that I hope you'll get more use out of than me. Hope you find something you like!
