About

The City Is Full Of Artifacts Waiting To Be Discovered.

Objects with history have stories. This is how we fell in love with vintage.

Denise's story ~ I grew up in a small southern town. When I was about seven years old, I remember going to a school carnival where there was a table with many old curiosities for sale. I found a tiny white baby elephant, smaller than the size of a marble. I fell in love and bought the elephant for a nickel. Now, decades later, the little celluloid elephant stands in the cubby of a printers drawer, and is surrounded by more than a hundred miniature pachyderms that my husband and I have collected through the years.

Lizzie's story ~ Just like most little girls, Lizzie loved to dress up. She would plunder through my dresser drawers where she found vintage gloves, purses, hats and jewelry, all of which spanned from the early to mid 1900s in age. These pieces were collected and worn during my college years. It was delightful to see Lizzie dress up in some of my favorite fashion accessories. I taught her how to care for collections from the past. We still have the gloves, purses, hats and jewelry, because they are dear to both of us. All of these pieces have a history that we will never know, they have a past from my younger years, and a place in our hearts from Lizzie's playful dress-up days.

Our love for vintage began during our childhoods. Now, we love to scour thrift stores and estate sales to find interesting vintage pieces to share with those whose lifestyles are enhanced with artifacts found in the city.
