Big News Part 2!


Oh yay! 
Okay, where do I begin? 




For such a long time now I've been hoarding a rather large collection of vintage goods in our tiny house in the hood, and awhile back decided to begin selling them on etsy. Which I love. All 10 sales :)


But although etsy is great, my dream has always been to open a vintage shop of my own. And Kyle too!


Kyle is the yard sale king and he has a great eye for vintage.
He's bought so many great large furniture pieces, record players, TV's. He's definitely hooked.


One night during a sweet pillow talk session between the husband and I, we finally decided that we just need to do it.


So last week we signed our papers for a space at the Redlands Galleria on State St. in Redlands and it opens January 1st!!!


It's going to be filled with beautiful mid-century & mid-century modern pieces a la Mad Men. Set up to look like a really stylish living room.
I can't wait. We are going to do a mock set up soon (when Kyle gets back from Arizona).


Although parting with most of the stuff is going to be so hard.
I just know it. I mean you have to see some of this stuff.
It's beautiful.
Right now we feel like vintage foster parents, hoping our babies are going to go to good homes. 


Now...


We have so much to do and I can't wait to fill you all in on all the details before the big day.

Long time lurker, first time commenter. :)

The minute you said "mid-century modern" I thought to myself, "Redlands isn't *that* far from Escondido." I'd love to visit the store when you're open!
