About

Meet The Two Acorns!

Welcome!
We are Jenny & John​.

...it all started one cold, colorless winter in a monotonous, Midwestern basement. ​Shortly after John and I started dating, we made a shocking discovery quite by accident. Something that neither of us knew about ourselves:

Crafty? Artsy Fartsy? That was certainly news to me; and it was new information to John, about himself, as well. Our "accident" started around 3am that crisp, winter morning, when we made an abrupt decision to paint the basement ceiling. (Isn't that always when good decisions are made; along with making random excursions to Wal-Mart?) It wasn't too long after that, we had an extra living room, and a SECRET CAVE! ...our SHOPPE!

​We weren't sure what happened. It was suddenly June and we had literally PAINTED THE TOWN RED. Well, maybe not the town; but picture frames, lampshades, gnomes, glass bottles...even the old, nasty, asbestos pipes in the basement earned color; we took our brushes to anything we could get our paint-stained paws on.

The children started questioning me. My 27 year old daughter called me, a bit concerned, from her home state of Colorado, after seeing one too many Instagram posts. "Mom, you can't paint EVERYTHING!"

She has a voice that "carries" like mine; John could hear her through the phone. We looked at each other, did a double take; and caught each others gaze:

"Wanna bet," we said at the same time?

​Over the past year, our shop has morphed. My aunt passed away, and I ended up with what was left of “The Family Things.”
Hand made lace, strange looking jewelry I couldn’t identify the purpose of, fine bone china, buttons, pottery, you name it! I did MEGA research for over a year; I wanted to know about every single item. Hence, we have pretty much done away with most of our DIY crafts, and started selling vintage. It just “happened.” After endless hours of reading books on glass, purses, costume jewelry; googling makers marks, joining groups, speaking with different society presidents, I pretty much feel like I know a LITTLE (or more) fact on a LOT of stuff. I find the history of antique and vintage items extremely fascinating! And...we LOVE LOVE LOVE “The Hunt!”

Remember, we aren't nuts. We are acorns.

The Two Acorns.​

Thank you for visiting!
