My dream is to have a shop…any kind of shop! A cake shop, a coffee shop, a shop that sells cute stuff. I just dream of that space that you can just decorate to your hearts content and display items in a lovely and pretty way! A place where you can come in everyday and meet different people who appreciates things that you love! (sigh! dreamy look)
Visiting Chicago, I was able to see a shop that I fell in love with! Vintage Fresh ! Even the name is so lovely right? This shop sells items that fit into the category of vintage, lovely, pretty, handmade and fabulous! I was so fortunate to have met two of the ladies behind this dream shop, Stacey and Kelly.
A little back track…I have been an instagram follower of asortofafairytale (Stacey) who posts photos of wonderful vintage items that she finds, and her lovely point of view of everyday things. She is also the owner of Cottage Industry Shop, an online shop that sells wonderful vintage and handmade items. So through my stalking (hehe) her website I saw that she had a space at a shop called Vintage Fresh in Downers Grove, Illinois. I left a message on her site and told her that I would be visiting Chicago and would love to drop by Vintage Fresh. She was kind enough to answer me back and warn me about the rough weather they were having and asked if I wanted recommendations of places that I could visit in Chicago. Sweet! 🙂
So, on the day that we went to Downers Grove and I visited Vintage Fresh, I was super lucky to have timed my visit when Stacey dropped by the store and the owner Kelly was there!!! You could say that it was my lucky day! I got to have a little chat with them, and most of all I was able to see the fabulous shop! I was super excited! They had the most wonderful items! They had furniture, vintage suitcases, dainty crystals, amazing decors and many more! I was in my happy place!
Enough with my gushing! Let me just share with you the photos that I took so that you could see for yourself what I mean! Shop Love! Vintage Fresh!…Sorry for the millions of photos, I just could not leave out anything! I want to share all the exquisite items in the shop with you!
Please do stay tuned for the other upcoming Shop Love Series coming up! Enjoy the shop as much as I did!
