VINTAGE THAT DOESN'T STINK
We’ve long thought that there are far too many cheap, mass-produced products in this world.
While you have likely come across the following quote before, we feel it describes our love for vintage goods best. “The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low cost is forgotten.”
Handmade goods naturally receive more attention to detail and care for the quality of a single product. Not to mention, for vintage goods, the the age of a product is worn as a badge of honor proving that it has stood the test of time and will hold up for the foreseeable future.
In our search for vintage goods, we plunder for the weird, the funky, and the quirky while prioritizing the authentic and well made.
We love things with a story. It's even more fun to tell that story when we pass on something fantastic. I’ll always remember the 1920’s crystal sconces I bought in Round Top, TX amid a fantastic conversation with a vendor that gave me the inside deets on how to ship a container of antiques from Europe. Another great personal find was a buffet we bought in Nashville. It was the perfect fit for our living room TV console at the time and now has a starring role as my cutting station for the pillows we create. It’s fun to think about how what was new to us when we bought it will be vintage to our kiddos one day, and speaking of which, man do we have one hell of a concert poster collection to pass down!
If you’re saying to yourself, “Okay, prove it, show me you have good taste!”
Happily, I’m glad you brought it up! See below for a short list of a few of our favorite items that have come and gone.
Handcrafted leather and wood folding campaign chair
Wood chain necklace
European hand carved from a single piece of wood, draped
over a vintage mannequin with a top hat? This find was a

Stand-up wood/metal bass case from 1890 that went to an avid bassist
Authentic Don Friedman lion wall hanging purchased as a gift for a nursery
Woven jute tapestry. Khaki green lion. And this super cool dude named Don Freedman made him in the 70’s! We miss him but know he is hanging out singing ‘Hakuna Matata’ with a sweet babe daily!
