It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas...

Once the turkey's been carved and the last pie sliced (we hope it's all delicious!), the Christmas season will officially begin! Did you know that Saturday the 26th is "Small Business Saturday" -- 68% of sales in small businesses are returned to the neighborhood where it's spent? Come on in to Vintage Home and help us celebrate it! 

Santa's elves are already hard at work filling the store with everything you need for entertaining and great gift-giving. So grab your list (check it twice--) and come on down to Vintage Home!

Here are just a few of our favorite new things for the holidays...

We have beautifully crafted dining room tables that are custom built for Vintage Home (and you!) out of reclaimed timbers. This 60-inch round table has a white pedestal base and a grey distressed top that really shows off the beauty of the larch wood.

Do you see what I see? No, you're not imagining things - we have
chairs, too. Ghost chairs! These super mod chairs are a cool
companion for your custom built farm table.

Still looking for the table of your dreams? We can have one made especially for you! You choose the style and the wood, and we'll take care of the rest!

Finish off your dining space with this cute cottage hutch (in aqua!). Dress up this solid maple gem for the holidays or keep it cool and casual year round. Either way, it's sure to be a star!

To throw the perfect holiday party, you'll need a bar...because nothing spreads Christmas cheer faster than a few cosmos! Find the perfect bar cart or wine cabinet at Vintage Home right now.

After dinner, cozy up by the fire with some eggnog in these gorgeous genuine leather chairs!

What a great gift idea for Dad...

You'll also find lots of vintage toys under the tree
that you may have had as a child. What a great way
to share your holiday memories with your little ones!

Now what about Mom? Next to this very vintage Christmas tree is an extra large armoire made of beautiful scrubbed pine. (This is one piece we dare not paint!) Right now it's filled with lots of great items for decorating and gifts for that special hostess. But take it home and it becomes the perfect place for Mom to keep her winter woolies.

We've got a wonderful selection of sweaters, scarves, hats and mittens - perfect for battling the cold when she's on the go - and fuzzy slippers and warm pajamas for keeping her cozy at home.

If seeing is believing, you have to come look for yourself at these and so many more wonderful things we have waiting for you! Join us this weekend at Vintage Home as we officially welcome the holiday season! 

We'll be open every Thursday til 7pm until Christmas--stop by for wine and cheese! See you then!

A Bumper Crop -- Ready for Fall!

Ready or not, Fall is here! Its time again for sweaters, apple cider and outdoor bonfires. And its the best time to stop by Vintage Home for a look at our new crop of cupboards, closets, and cabinets and much more you'll need for the Fall season of entertaining.  We've got an amazing selection right now!

Here are just a few of our favorite new looks that will warm up your home this Fall!

If you're looking for an easy way to add warmth to a room, bring in natural wood accents. The dark, rich finish on this vintage library cabinet will do just the trick. With all its drawers, it's the perfect combination of storage and style.

We love the look and feel of scrubbed
pine! This is one piece you have to
see and touch for yourself.

Another great option is this antique pine cabinet. 
We like it as a nightstand, but you can work this natural beauty into any room!

Already have a room filled with natural wood? Make it more interesting by adding one or two painted pieces. We have an amazing new selection of cupboards, bookcases and tables, all perfect for blending with many other styles and wood finishes in your home.

This gorgeous gray-glazed cupboard may be just what your dining room needs! Load it up with your dishes and wine, then pair it with a natural wood dining set for added depth and dimension. Get the same drama by mixing it with a painted table and chairs.

This little number is green
in more ways than one - it was
made using all vintage parts!

A charming country cabinet would be easy to work into a kitchen, office or living room - and we have a large selection of both old cabinets and new!

And of course, nothing freshens up a room like the addition of white. Blended with wood furniture, it's a quick way to perk up a room--or choose all-white for the serene and fresh look we love all year long! We have a wonderful assortment of beds, dressers, armoires, desks and mirrors painted in our signature white. 

Come see these and all our exciting new arrivals during our new store hours: Monday-Saturday from 10am-5pm and now on Sundays from 12-4pm. Come visit!

College apartments and dorms don't typically offer much space, but don't worry - we have lots of petite pieces to help you make the most of what you've got!

This charming little rustic farm table would fit nicely in an eat-in-kitchen or small dining space. The best part is (besides the chippy green and white paint!) - it could double as a desk!

But this table isn't the only piece that can pull double duty...

Something Old, Something New

We were so happy to see many of you at our tent sale last weekend. Thank you for helping us make it a fun and successful event!

If you haven't been to Vintage Home in awhile - or even if you were here last week - now is a great time to stop by! We have lots of wonderful things for you to see - some old--always a great selection of vintage things--and some new - they're all chic and just crossed the threshold! Here is just a little sneak peek of some of the new arrivals~
Look how beautiful the natural wood table
looks paired with a painted piece! Any style of
chair pairs with this table. Mix it up!
Add a Frenchy cupboard for a real collected look.

It's no secret how much we love farm tables, and right now the store is filled with them! We have three beautifully constructed farm-style tables that just arrived from Holland, each with its' own character and charm. All you have to do is pick the one that matches your own sense of style!

There's no question the star of this
table is its chunky, white painted legs!
It's the softer side of farmhouse chic.

We can't decide which we like better: the rustic
notched-wood top or the swirling base of this
rare 70-inch round absolutely gorgeous table.

Just in the past few days, what an assortment of bookcases and cupboards!

Here's a closer look at the white bread box cupboard you see pictured behind our large, round farm table. We're so impressed by the beautiful lines of this piece and think it deserves a little extra attention.

And check out this wonderful French gray and white cupboard
 we just placed in the shop last night~ Whoops - you're too quick for us! This piece sold before we could get the blog out! But we do have the same cupboard in white with a gray accent you may also love.

Don't forget - we have new vintage furniture and home accessories arriving at the store every day! Right now we have a wide selection of beautiful antique buffets and servers, desks, vanities, dressers and beds (including two king size headboards!). Come by the shop this week to see what pieces--old and new--inspire you!

We're here every Mon-Sat from 10am-5pm. We'd love to show you around!

Industrial Romance

It's official! We're quite smitten with our new industrial furniture that arrived this week. Its cool, its hip and maybe even a little edgy. Did we mention functional? That, too! Here are a few of our favorite new arrivals from modern industrial to vintage tattered chic! Hurry down to Vintage Home to see the rest of this week's latest arrivals~

You may need a ladder to reach the top of this steel-framed baker's rack, but you won't need a forklift. The industrial castors not only look great, but they make this piece easy to move. Definitely a plus!

Don't be afraid to mix and match styles.
An industrial piece can add drama
and spunk to any decor!

Prefer to keep the clutter behind doors? How about 40 drawers? Yes, we said 40! This extra-large apothecary cabinet can get you cleaned up in no time. And the best part: each drawer has a label holder, so you exactly where everything is!

Love this chair? It's the real
deal, and we have six of them!

Torn between two styles? Who says you have to pick just one? Look how great this chippy, white farm table looks with this industrial Enesco chair. The table can also be cut down to make a handsome coffee table.

This beautiful six-piece bedroom set is extra special with a milky gray and brown glazed finish that is truly one-of-a-kind. Don't need a whole set? That's OK! Buy just the pieces you need; they would look gorgeous paired with metal, natural wood or white painted furniture. Feel free to experiment -- you'll be surprised at how well the styles blend!

Enjoy a night out under the stars in this beautiful white, wrought iron patio set or matching chaise (not pictured). Not much room to spread out? Consider this small bistro set for a quiet dinner for two.

Love what you see here? Stop in Vintage Home this weekend (open Saturdays 10-5)  to see these and other great finds!

Earth Day Every Day!

Officially, Earth Day was Friday, April 22, but at Vintage Home every day is Earth Day! Why? Because we take antique furniture and give it new life: We clean it, fix it, paint it, stain it, polish it--whatever it needs--to make it the perfect piece for you!

Here are some of the "green" treasures you'll find at Vintage Home right now:

We know your mind is on the beautiful weather outside, so let’s start with a look at the great restored patio furniture we have for sale.

This white outdoor dining set comes with a large, glass top table and six matching chairs. What a chic piece for the beach!

Recognize the base of this coffee table? It's a chicken coop! We've added a glass top and industrial castors to this awesome farmhouse find. We love this piece for its great rustic appeal. It could certainly weather the outdoors (and has!) or warm up a room inside - you decide!

Obsessed with rustic chic?
So are we! Come see our one-of-a-kind
selection of barn wood beauties.

This French-style bachelorette chest is extra sweet with its glass knobs and unique diamond pattern. We'll let you in on a little secret: there are three more drawers inside!

Beside this beautiful bachelorette chest is an elegant nightstand with wire-front doors. We have several other white, French-style nightstands in the store, so stop in and see which one strikes your fancy!

Not enough room in your bathroom to do your hair and makeup? This 1930s vanity is perfect for primping! And check out the size of the mirror - it’s every girl’s dream!

Having a large dinner party? No problem!
This dining table comes with two
extension leaves.

If you like the style of the vanity, have we got the table for you! This round, dark hardwood dining table is from the same era, and it’s gorgeous! Notice how the rich, natural wood really pops next to a painted piece.

Are you thinking what we’re thinking? This piece would look awesome with that round dining table! This distressed, tan buffet is truly unique: the beautiful arch is actually the handles for a large, second drawer!

If you love horses, you might also love these framed vintage photos (above the buffet). We think they were taken in the Unionville area. So cool!

Like what you see? We've got plenty more vintage jewels to show you. So if you feel like going "green," go to Vintage Home!

This Week's Arrivals!

They're here! Our new shipment of cool, functional cupboards arrived late last week, and they're awesome! Here are some of the new pieces you’ll find at Vintage Home this week!

OK, how many pieces of china do you think you can fit in this amazing find?! With six cabinets, four drawers and three shelves, this beautiful cupboard may just hold every dish you own! 

Remember the Swedish blue gray we love so much? We now have several different styled cupboards in this great color for you to choose from, so all you have to do is pick the one that’s right for you!

This charming, rustic cupboard offers an enormous amount of storage space enclosed behind three elegant, arched doors with paneled glass. And believe it or not - this isn’t our biggest one! We also have a wider version with two large, glass-paneled sliding doors. Stop in the store to check out these and other options.

Love the blue gray color but need a
space-saving alternative? This single-door
cabinet will give you the look you love
in the size you need!

Don’t be intimidated by the size of this next piece! This white-washed cupboard with chicken-wire door-fronts is the perfect companion for the large farm table you have -- or want to have -- at home. Dining room not big enough? We’ll let you in on a little secret: This piece is actually three individual cabinets, so you can customize this cupboard to fit your needs. Buy one, two or three!

We love the quaint, cottagey feel of this white, double-door cupboard, and so did one of you! Unfortunately, this piece has already been snatched up, but we are able to order you one in ivory if you love it, too.

Here is another great candidate for a media center or armoire! This beautiful white storage cupboard features three adjustable shelves enclosed by two large, window-paned glass doors. But that’s not all! This piece also has three glass-knobbed drawers for lots of extra hidden storage.

This new arrival isn’t a cupboard, but it does offer you the same extra storage for your home. And it’s GORGEOUS! Honestly, the picture doesn’t do it justice. Stop in the store this week to see this rustic storage bench in person with its beautiful six antique blue and green stained glass panels. Perhaps another great piece for your beach house!

For questions or measurements on any of these pieces, call Vintage Home at (610) 251-2155 or stop by the shop. We’d be happy to help you! And don’t forget to check back to see next week’s exciting arrivals.
