The Story of Irvina Vintage

Irvina Vintage was inspired by a mid century love story; the love of a husband, Irv, for his wife, Ina. A testament to his love, Irv hand-built a delightful nest in Mankato, Minnesota: a flat-roof rambler made of concrete, Kasota Stone, and seemingly endless square feet of wood paneling, that overlooks the Minnesota River valley. When he was finished––and his jacket no longer fit him due to his overworked muscles––Irv had given his wife a perfect place to furnish, decorate, and fill with all the joys of 1960s homemaking.

For the next 50 years, Irv and Ina lived out their lives in this house. Then, we were blessed to buy it from their children in a well-preserved state––a “time capsule” home with original laminate countertops and bright floral wallpaper in the kitchen, built-ins upon quirky built-ins (including a narrow card-table closet housed below the magazine display), Danish Modern light fixtures, a pink bathroom, and shag carpet in the bedrooms.

Seeing the care and love that went into this rare home, we jumped at the opportunity to buy it. Since moving in, we have discovered we love treasure hunting for original vintage pieces from the Mid Century Modern era. We opened our Etsy shop, Irvina Vintage, so that we could share some of our enjoyment with others.

Thank you for visiting, and happy shopping!

Nothing's finer that a treasure from Irvina! We go crazy for 1960s and 70s home decor, and have been collecting it for years. If you love it like we do, you're going to enjoy Irvina Vintage. Best of all, 10% of all proceeds are donated to our favorite local community organizations: Mankato Rehabilitation Center Incorporated (MRCI), Salvation Army, VINE Faith in Action, and Minnesota Valley Action Council.
