Time Flies!

I honestly have no idea how it has already been 8 months. That is 2/3 of a year!

This has been an amazing journey. I am looking forward to the future and working to adapt both the store and myself to what it holds.

One thing coming together is making Reinvented Vintage a more community oriented space! We are starting to offer a new style of class, what I am calling “Make-And-Take.” These are classes that bring together local artists and community members. The artists lead a class in a afternoon (or morning!) of fun, laughter and learning.

Besides bringing in guest artists, I am also working towards having a majority AR Made products (the non-vintage kind that is!).

Some as far away as Fayetteville, with a lot closer to home! Some of our AR made:

Come see me (and all of these great products) at the shop Tues-Sat 11-6! ;D

Hope to see you soon!

What is Highlighting?

Highlighting is essentially the use of contrasting colours to bring out a feature, usually a carving or recess, on a piece of french antique furniture. It is generally used when one single solid colour makes a French antique piece of furniture appear too blocky.
