Keisha is a dream! Handled all the shipping for me from Chicago to Riverview, Fl. I will definitely keep Minthome, on my favorite and buy again. Thank you very much for all that you did.

Refurbished and Vintage

Mint Home was started by Jessie and Keisha in 2009 and offers refurbished furniture largely from the mid century. Each piece is sanded raw, hand painted/stained using low to no voc paints, and sealed with water based polycrylic. We reroute drawer tracks, re-stain the inside of drawers, and re-glue any loose joints to make each piece look and feel like new. Occasionally, we come across pieces in near “Mint” condition, and are able to offer those “as is.” So, if you’re a mid century purist, we’ve got something for you, too!

In 2012, Mint Home expanded from an online enterprise to a brick and mortar store in the North Center neighborhood. In concert with our vintage furniture, we now are able to offer a wide array of products handmade by local and national artisans. Screen printed pillows and tea towels, hand poured candles, original art prints, handmade air planters, makers kits, irreverent cards and more await you! In addition, we pick up all sorts of smalls from our travels, and offer these unique treasures alongside the furniture and handmade goods.

As parents, Jessie and I see an urgent need to move businesses back to more sustainable models and Mint Home was born out of a strong desire to do our part. When you shop local, you have the unique privilege of knowing exactly who you support and we think this is wonderful way to not only build community, but positively impact our environment. We don’t deal in disposable goods from distant lands. Instead, every item you purchase is one of a kind and we can tell you where each handmade item was made and by whom. We think that’s pretty special!

A note about our pieces:

We choose vintage items in all shapes, sizes, styles, and weights. Some pieces have dovetail joints and are solid wood, some are not. They are usually priced according to all these factors. Our main goal is to keep these pieces affordable for our customer while saving dated pieces from the landfill. If you have certain expectations regarding functionality or construction, please convo us to discuss.

Please be aware that we use water based products that have less environmental impact. They do respond unfavorably to humidity and high heat. If you intend to place a piece of painted furniture in a non climate controlled environment, you may experience movement/swelling of the wood and surface tackiness. We cannot be held responsible for functionality issues due to your environment.
