ANDIE & JENNIE
Since the opening of VM, this mother-daughter team has inspired many with their signature "blackbird" look. Their passion for life & style is displayed creatively, mixing contemporary goods, vintage finds, industrial wares, and unique treasures hunted far and wide. Favorite decorating tip: Don't be afraid of contrast in your design; pair a chippy white window with a sleek metal table.
This mother and daughter team enjoys the satisfaction that comes with fashioning something of beauty with their hands. Doris is a native of beautiful Virginia, which has the dogwood as its state flower, and hence the name! JUNKING TIP: "Keep your eyes open for the unexpected and don't be afraid to rummage in unlikely places."
I love decorating and shopping! Using old and new to make my look unique. With my often reluctant husband who takes me across country for flea markets and vintage shows, asking, what are you going to do with that? (sound familiar?) I try to explain, I love it, and I will figure out what to do with it eventually. Sometimes it takes a while because it's rusty, dirty, and I don't need it,but the light goes on and then it's the perfect piece. I was in Main Street Antiques for 15 years, when the opportunity came to be in
Vintage Market I saw the best of both worlds incorporating old and new.

Fig and Lottie
Becky has been selling vintage and antique items for over 10 years. She has a charming eclectic style, but is especially fond of cottage and farmhouse decor. Some of her favorite things to look for are linens, mirrors, old books, farmhouse and Primitives, old scales and anything else that is fun and interesting. DECOR TIP: "Vintage can be for any age - just have fun and be creative with your own style. Adding vintage finds to a home makes it cozy, collected and unique. Just have fun scouting out those special pieces. A well styled home doesn't happen all at once, but rather one or a few pieces at a time."

DECORATIVE - UPCYCLED - HANDMADE VINTAGE
As a longtime customer of Vintage Market, I was thrilled to become a part of the creative collective! I love all things timeworn - vintage fabrics & papers, salvaged objects, anything that can be re-imagined for today's homes. So, with a lot of help from my husband for the big stuff and the metal stuff, I hope to create decor that is rustic and elegant, trendy and timeless...all at the same time.
