What is the aesthetic and feel of your store? Our shoppe has a farmhouse and vintage feel. It’s old mixed with new.
Why did you open your store? As a stay at home mom of 3, I love having an outlet and something that inspires me. I love hunting for that perfect, one-of-a-kind vintage piece someone has been looking for and giving it new life with a fresh coat of paint. I hope that Vine and Willow is place that people can come to find inspiration and ideas on how to give some life to some furniture pieces they may have.
What do you offer? We will be offering paint classes starting at the end of February. I will be showing how our chalk paint—Little Billy Goat}—is so easy to use. No prepping or priming involved you just paint right over your piece for an amazing vintage look. The class will be 90 minutes and you will even come home with a little project! As far as the store, we offer painted furniture, vintage finds, farmhouse home decor, pillows, signs, vintage jewelry and accessories.
What makes your store unique? What makes our store unique is definitely the new products mixed with old. We have had customers say that some of our products bring back memories of their childhood, yet others will say I just saw this on HGTV’s Fixer Upper.
What brands do you carry? Most of my products are vintage but we do carry Selina Vaughan bags and Little Billy Goat chalk paint.
