People love that they are made with found and re-purposed objects. Whether it’s an old cupboard door or a piece of reclaimed wood people love the history that goes along with them. People also like my hard-to-find items. Whether it’s an old large dough bowl or a 1950s pink phone. I do my best to have interesting and hard to find items.

What is the oldest thing you own.
The oldest thing I own is the original post masters box from a small town in Massachusetts. There are 15 boxes for the 15 original families who lived in the town. It has the original paint and it is just stunning.

Urban Vintage Spotlight: Inherited Vintage

Sabrina Heise from Inherited Vintage

Were can customers usually shop your wares?
I have an online shop &  I sell at shows

Describe your influences, inspiration, and what you plan to bring:
Inherited Vintage focuses on the kinds of pieces you’d love to inherit from the wardrobe of a stylish relative: a blend rare and beautifully-made dresses and evening pieces and plenty of quality everyday wear as well. A fair amount of cotton, linen, velvet, chiffon, cashmere, and wool (depending on the season).

Who are your style crushes/vintage icons/fashion muses, and why/how do they influence you?:
Katherine Hepburn, Frida Kahlo, Loulou de la Falaise, Jane Berkin. These women cover a variety of eras, but they each made fashion their own. They stood out in each of their eras by creating trends rather than following them.

What are the things customers seek you out for?:
Vintage separates, feminine dresses, unique jewelry.

What is the oldest thing you own.
Possibly an American jacquard coverlet from 1838.

Urban Vintage Spotlight: Posy

Laura Browning from Posy

Were can customers usually shop your wares?
I have an online shop & I sell at shows

Describe your influences, inspiration, and what you plan to bring:
Posy is about vintage comfort. Laura got her start fixing up old houses with her Dad and has been inspired by the old homes she’s visited over the years, whether in small town Illinois as a child or present day coastal Maine. Laura strives to find quality pieces that will lend a storied history to any home. Posy’s booth will be full of quality kitchen goods, books, cozy linens, & vintage staples like warm brass, thermoses and creative storage (metal and wooden tool caddies/boxes). There’ll be barware, quirky planters, and paint by numbers. Posy will also have small furniture pieces, an amazing green plaid cooler, wooden soda crates, and lots more!

Who are your style crushes/vintage icons/fashion muses, and why/how do they influence you?:
Schoolhouse Electric is a definite crush of mine. I love their whole vintage aesthetic and the time and care they put into each of the pieces they make. My favorite designer continues to be Emily Henderson who always brings vintage quirk into her spaces. And, honestly, I get so jazzed to meet and talk with the folks I meet while picking. They know the value of their collections and understand the importance of hanging on to…or passing along…vintage.

What are the things customers seek you out for?:
Posy’s best sellers are brass animals, colorful globes, quirky planters and quality kitchen items.

What is the oldest thing you own.
The oldest items in Posy’s inventory are books published in the early 1900’s. Personally, our home is chock full of hand-me-downs and family heirlooms, with the oldest being silver serving pieces from my husband’s family. We use them even for the most casual of gatherings…no sense in hiding their beauty!
