September 2017...

We have some BIG store news for you! Thank you to all of you loyal followers, we've been in business now for six years, five at our current location. When we first opened here, we opened on just the main counter side, but not long after expanded to both sides. We have decided to downsize a bit and back to just the single side. As many of you know, we have a 15 month old daughter and as we think about continuing to expand our family, I feel like downsizing a bit gives me the opportunity to better balance the shop along with our family. I want to assure you, things are going WELL at the shop.. so well, that I find it difficult to keep up, which is a good problem to have! :) Thank you again, we appreciate all of you as it is your support that has allowed us to stay in business for the past six years and the encouragement to sign another lease here!
In downsizing a bit, we are holding a big SALE!! We have marked down nearly everything that is now in the second half of the shop! This includes a variety of deeply discounted furniture, florals, gift items and décor! We also have a variety of our vintage doors, screens and trellises that we used for display on sale! Stop in soon for the best sale pickins.. and we will continue to add more over the next few weeks up through October 22nd!
We are also excited to make some interior changes to the shop… so we will be closed starting October 23rd and through October 31st! We will re-open on Wednesday, November 1st with all of our holiday items out on display – our Christmas Sneak Peek sale November 1st through the 5th. Plus.. we will be launching The Little Lily….
We are also excited to announce that we are adding a children’s line to the store… we are calling in The Little Lily – named after our little one! We will be offering some of the cutest little outfits, magnetic closure sleepers, muslin blankets, bandana bibs, carseat and nursing covers.. and a variety of other cute, trendy items! I’ve handpicked some of my favorite items I found for my little Lily.. now you can purchase them locally! We will be starting a separate Facebook page dedicated to The Little Lily – watch for this coming soon!
We just put out all of our Fall décor... and have Christmas finds arriving.. so we are very excited for the coming months.. our busiest and favorite time of year! At the beginning of this summer we had extended our hours, which will remain our year-round hours: Tuesday-Friday: 10am-6pm, Saturday: 10am-5pm and Sunday: 12-4pm. We look forward to continuing to serve you and all of your decorating and gifts needs.
Again, THANK YOU – and thank you for taking the time to catch up with us! Hoping to see you all soon!
Xoxo—Toni & The Vintage Garden Team
