Urban Vintage Spotlight: RetroWix

Vickie Baird from RetroWix

Describe your style, influences, inspiration, and what you plan to bring:
RetroWix is an online vintage candle shop. I combine elegant glassware into eco-friendly soy candles. I have always loved candles and anything vintage but glassware has been my passion. I love the styles and history from all periods. You will find quality hand-selected pieces that will make wonderful gifts and unique home decor. A lovely way to preserve a piece of history.

Who are your style crushes/vintage icons/fashion muses, and why/how do they influence you?:
Growing up in the south, I had many family members who influenced my love of vintage. As a child, there were beautiful pieces displayed in cabinets, collections that told a families history…and now that nostalgia whenever I burn a candle in those same pieces.

What are the things customers seek you out for?
We carry many styles of vintage candles from milk glass, goblets, jars, and a customer favorite candy dishes. These make unique gifts and a lovely addition to any home.

What’s your favorite thing about your city?
I have lived in Raleigh for almost 20 years and love it! A wonderful place to raise a family and so many things to do! As empty nesters, Pop-ups, shows, and local breweries are our new favorite weekend activity…and thrifting:)

Urban Vintage Spotlight: Past Forward Home

Heather and Chris from Past Forward Home

Describe your style, influences, inspiration, and what you plan to bring:
We find inspiration in bringing the past Forward. Whether it be old trees into exciting new furniture or old pieces, fixing them up and giving them new life. Looking at every type of store both vintage and modern helps to bring everything together. Style is so personal and subjective. Helping people fall in love with a piece makes us happy

What are the things customers seek you out for?
We have two sides to the business. Redoing vintage furniture and creating new. I have a lot of people who buy our furniture redos, but who also ask us to redo old furniture they already own. I love to do both. Often times meeting with people and helping them bring their vision for an old piece to life is exciting.

We both love different types of wood and the little nuisances it brings. Building new/live edge work is also so exciting to us!!


What’s your favorite thing about your city?
Cary is great. So many things are up and coming. I also see them updating old buildings instead of tearing them down. Preserving the past is a wonderful way to help build for a bettter future! Downtown Cary has come a long way!!

Where can customers usually shop your wares?
I sell at shows
