One thing leads to another!

Hunting down wonderful things for Vintage Picnic, we keep finding unique and handsome “finds” for house + garden. Our collection of good woods got so large that we opened a second shop right around the corner!
At Vintage Home, you can everything from period pieces to fun decorator items to art. Peter is a genius in fixing, refinishing and otherwise transforming quality vintage furnishings into sturdy, beautiful pieces ready to use now. When we find a bargain, we pass it along to you.

Happy Customer

My husband and I received a basket as a wedding present and it brought us to tears; I was blown away by the thoughtfulness. I knew right away that I had to make one for my sister who was getting married six months later. It was so much fun to personalize and incorporate items that had meaning to both of us growing up. Both of these baskets will be used throughout our lives and will remind of us the special times we received them.
