Pickers Grunge to Vintage Bliss

Ever watch the show American Pickers?  We love that show.  Digging around finding amazing vintage pieces.  We repurpose, repair and repaint, that’s what we do best.  Here’s one of our favorite pieces, this lovely buffet, check our previous post about this here.

We bought this sign and it became our store sign at our original location on Pennsylvania Avenue.

Our sweet Audrey Hepburn inspired piece.  One of our favorites.

This sweet dresser turned out so amazing.  It was always under our Audrey Hepburn art which seemed to be our inspiration when we created the repaint of the dresser.  One of our favorite people bought this and has it in her home.

Seems like we have a lot of favorites.  We get attached to most of the vintage pieces we bring into the store.  Sometimes it’s hard to let them go.

We will be sharing more of our Vintage World…
