Q: Why do you do what you do? What motivates and inspires you?
A: Born out of my extreme love for finding unique, interesting and unusual stuff, connecting with all kinds of people and creating a cool environment, in 1996, we turned an abandoned old general store and post office built in the 1800s into a Vintage Hip store. I love the dichotomy of looking like some random, funky stand off the highway while exceeding everyone’s expectations when they stop in. Even as a kid, I was always compelled by old items; they have so much personality. I love that everything you find in our store is a spokesperson for its era. We’re also a majority women-run business that is very much a family, and our support for each other resonates with our customers.
