Urban Vintage Spotlight: funkijunk

Christy Moyers of funkijunk

Describe your style, influences, inspiration, and what you plan to bring:
Next year, I’ll be celebrating my 25th year as a full-time antiques dealer, and I’ll gladly do it for another 25. It’s addictive, y’all! I’m attracted to unusual, little things from all eras. If it’s something I’ve never seen before, I’ll buy it, no question. If it’s quirky, I’m in love! Old leather boxes, Victorian silver, pop culture paper goods and antique books are the fan favorites at markets. I carry a fun mix of goods relating to science, history, art, and culture. If you’re wanting to add personality to your coffee table and bookcases, I’m your girl! Imagine Thomas Jefferson’s library crossed with Janis Joplin’s bedroom, and throw in kitschy souvenirs from a 1950s road trip on Route 66 …that’s my style. Folks often say I’m a traveling museum, (but with affordable prices, of course)! I love the thrill of the hunt, and I’m super passionate about design, too, but the best part of this business is meeting all the interesting people.

For the Urban Vintage market, I’ll have a nice variety of antique books, maps, botanical prints, medical book plates and a ton of paper goods & ephemera. I’m also bringing old cameras, 1920s-1950s advertising feed sacks, a gorgeous 1970s Curtis Jeré bronzed seagull sculpture, vintage safety razors, Catholic medals and some rosaries too, a Victorian stereoscope, and the cutest ever, little 1960s Mighty Mouse alarm clock. The list is endless!

Who are your style crushes/vintage icons/fashion muses, and why/how do they influence you?:
I am madly in love with Alessandro Michele, Gucci’s current creative director. The way he embraces maximalism really speaks to me. He sees beauty everywhere and so do I.

Everybody has that thing that got away, what’s the purchase you never made that still sometimes keeps you awake at night?:
A traditional, colorful embroidered Scandinavian coat, probably dating to the 1930s. It was the most gorgeous thing I’ve ever seen. I was willing to put all my money into it and eat nothing but rice for a month, but sadly, I was still outbid at auction!

Where can customers usually shop your wares:
The Depot at Gibson Mill in Concord, NC, and at shows.

a community thank you to DECO raleigh!

 

DECO raleigh has been our best friend since their beginning! Every time we put together an event, they are the first to jump on board as a Master Sponsor. They are huge promoters of downtown Raleigh and small business. They have been partnering with us since they opened their doors in 2012. If you need a gift for someone and cannot find it at DECO raleigh, then you’re not really looking! They carry the works of more than 60 local artisans.

And, have you checked out DECO home? We guarantee that there will be something for you to pick up to go along with your purchase this weekend at Urban Vintage!


Don’t forget when you visit DECO raleigh + home you need to check out the parklet just outside their door? It was designed as a community effort among Deco Raleigh, faculty and students from the NCSU College of Design, and local businesses. What a great use of a parking spot. Check out raleigh [ ] space to learn how it came to be.

Urban Vintage Spotlight: HangarOne Design

Lynda Bryant-Comstock of HangarOne Design

Describe your style, influences, inspiration, and what you plan to bring:
At HangarOne Design, mid century modern and vintage pieces receive an expert makeover to provide distinctive, one-of-a-kind high quality furnishings.
This is more than a business, it is a passion. Passion for great form, structure and style. Passion for sourcing solidly built and well formed furniture. Passion for fabric that will bring life back to an old chair. Creating a stylish look by finding the right chair paired with the right fabric makes my heart sing.
I am inspired by the lines of the chair, the manufacturing process that created it, the years of patina and the bold fabric to give it new beginnings.

Who are your style crushes/vintage icons/fashion muses, and why/how do they influence you?:
My style crushes are not mainstream, they are the women and men who work in the vintage upholstery industry that bring talent, creative flair and updated style to make a piece of chair art. They help me push beyond my limits in terms of upholstery as well as bold design. They encourage me to be whimsical, classical, and extraordinary.

Everybody has that thing that got away, what’s the purchase you never made that still sometimes keeps you awake at night?:
The Eames chair that I simply walked by – sigh….

Where can customers usually shop your wares:
At the shop: 3401 University Dr., Durham NC, online, and at shows.

Urban Vintage Spotlight: Patina Novum

Camilah Jennings of Patina Novum

Describe your style, influences, inspiration, and what you plan to bring:
My style is all about making ‘vintage’ contemporary, or making old things new. I love finding unused, discarded, ugly old material and turning them into beautiful one-of-a-kind pieces that fit in most any home! Patina Novum’s collections take on a hyper-natural color scheme. Most of the pieces are rooted in a neutral palette, with pops of rich color, which goes well in most any interior. The most popular pieces are the coaster sets made from old tiles and cast concrete, and the soft goods like pillows and oven mitts.

Everybody has that thing that got away, what’s the purchase you never made that still sometimes keeps you awake at night?:I’m just a sucker for anything one-of-a-kind or with a history or story. I have to leave something knowing that there’s literally never a chance to grab it again!

Where can customers usually shop your wares:
On website, social Media and Pop Up Markets.
