October 17, 2012New Sponsor Shout-Out – Everyone Welcome Bryan from The Vintage Resource
Hey Everyone! RetroRuth here, and I am super-excited to introduce the newest member of our little family here at No Pattern Required: Bryan from The Vintage Resource! The Vintage Resource is an amazing vintage shop that is filled with some really fun stuff. It is an eclectic mix of fun vintage kitchen goods, drink ware, retro home decor, Christmas decorations and some great ephemera. On top of that, Bryan is really great and has a true passion for vintage and retro. But that’s enough out of me. I’ll let Bryan tell you more, and show you pictures of some of the great stuff at his shop!
I can trace my vintage obsession back to one seminal event, an antique show in Atlanta last June. There they were – two gleaming Pyrex Butterprint mixing bowls, not even a full set mind you, just two lone mixing bowls. Perfect in every way, just like the ones my Mother had used…..I was a goner.
From that point on I’ve been hooked, an entire world of beautiful lost objects just waiting to be discovered. Vintage radios, housewares, office products – I find beauty and joy in them all. And in case you were wondering, yes I did complete my set of mixing bowls – added matching refrigerator dishes, a casserole set and well, you get where this is going.
Somewhere along the line I discovered the thrill of the hunt was only half the fun…selling some of these treasures was just as gratifying; so I set up The Vintage Resource on Etsy to pass along all the retro wonderfulness I’ve found out on my vintage journey.
I hope you stop by and check out my store and you find something that catches your eye, tugs at your heart or makes you feel happy remembering people and places from your past – just like those two little Pyrex bowls did for me.
Thanks for the great story, Bryan, and we are pumped to have you as a sponsor here on No Pattern Required! Everyone make sure to head on over to The Vintage Resource and use coupon code NOPATTERN20 at checkout to receive 20% off your purchase!
