A Handmade Holiday

When it comes to holidays, cookie cutter should be something that describes your gingerbread and not your gifts. But selecting gifts that are one-of-a-kind doesn’t have to be stressful. Here at Deep Creek Vintage we’ve gathered pieces that are as unique as the recipient. And we have an amazing array of handmade gifts that are sure to make your package stand out. Deciding to give a handmade gift doesn’t mean you have to become a slave to your wood shop – it may just mean finding a local artist who does the work for you. And isn’t it even better when your unique gift supports a local business? We think so!

We have wonderful, festive pieces in that are handmade locally! But don’t wait because they are leaving quickly with happy customers. What makes it twice as nice? Many of our vendors are having sales this weekend just for Small Business Saturday! We’re so thankful that you are supporting local businesses like Deep Creek Vintage, and we’re offering some extra incentives to come out and shop small. Just take a look at some of the great pieces that have just arrived!

We all have those people who are just so hard to buy for. They seem to have everything! When you shop at a place like Deep Creek Vintage, it’s easy to walk into a room and exclaim, “Wow, I’ve never seen one of those before!” It stands to reason that if you’ve never seen one, they probably don’t have one. Shopping, done! We offer personalized and handmade gifts, too! What better way to show you wanted their gift to be truly unique?!

We are so thankful for your support this holiday season. When you shop small, you truly make a difference. We are not part of a chain, or a larger conglomerate. When you shop at Deep Creek Vintage, you are supporting your neighbors and your friends, and your money stays in the community. We love getting to know you, and building relationships with you. Thank you for making us part of your holidays! We will see you soon at the Manor!

Time to cozy up inside!

Please tell me I am not the only one who went from wanting to sit outside on the front porch at night, to wanting to stay huddled on the couch under my blanket. The drop in temperature as fall has arrived has made me remember just how much I love my fireplace and my tea kettle. For me, fall is all about comfort. But comfort doesn’t have to mean a fuzzy bathrobe or bunny slippers (although let’s be honest and admit that it sometimes does). When you introduce elements into your home that make being warm and cozy stylish, you get the best of both worlds.

These kantha blankets are a new addition to Deep Creek Vintage. Their bright colors and vivid patterns make a statement, but their softness is what appeals the most to me. With coordinating scarves, these are a must-have as we venture into colder seasons. Or maybe you’re a fan of the traditional. There is nothing quite like a quilt when the temperature is dropping! Come check out our selection.

22854648_10159403077425307_199309737_n   22855861_10159403152145307_2045935382_n

And if you’re going to cuddle up, you need a comfy chair to do it in! We have several to choose from in all different styles. Maybe you even want a footrest to really relax!

22855769_10159403152870307_683492928_n   22854951_10159403152780307_2077346426_n

Now if you’re really going to kick back, you need something to warm you from the inside out. A nice cup of tea, perhaps? Or maybe you’re a hot chocolate fan. Whether you’re looking for a stylish way to keep your supplies organized, or a fancy new cup that makes you want to lift your pinky up, you’ve come to the right place.

22835590_10159403153070307_1437970089_n   22854896_10159403152810307_1616545359_n22855639_10159403152865307_1473199723_n   22855685_10159403151970307_495614902_n

And of course, who can resist a nice warm bath when it’s cold outside? We have a great selection of natural bath products that make you smell as good as you feel!

And what’s better than a good book for those cold nights? We love the look of old books, but there are such wonderful stories to be found, too! Many of our vendors have a great selection for you to peruse.

Come by today and get ready to get cozy in style! When the weather outside gets frightful, you’ll be glad you have all the essentials to relax. We’ll see you soon at the manor house!

 

 

The market is coming!

It is officially the first day of fall! While it might still be warm outside, soon we will be trading in shorts and flip-flops for boots and sweaters. And with the return of fall, it’s the return of one of our favorite events of the year – the Vintage Fall Market! In two weeks, our lawn will be full of tents as some of our favorite vendors travel back to Deep Creek Vendors to welcome in the season. If you haven’t attended our market before, trust us that this is an event you will not want to miss!

The weekend of October 7-8, we will be opening early so make sure you have the car ready. Saturday the event begins at 9am, and you’ll want to have first dibs on all the great pieces available. It’s not just furniture that will be showcased at the market. From home decor to handcrafted gift items, you’ll find pieces in all sizes and price ranges. It’s a great opportunity to grab your friends and make a day of it. Who doesn’t enjoy a day of shopping for great, one-of-a-kind pieces?

Bidding Summer Goodbye

It’s been a great summer here at Deep Creek Vintage, and we’re gearing up for fall. But, before we can do that, we’re saying goodbye to summer with a sale to remember. Instead of just one weekend of savings, we’re extending the sale through Labor Day. Yes, you read that right. Our sale will begin August 25 and run through September 4. It’s a great time to come in and get a great deal while we make way for fall.

So what kind of savings can you expect to see? Some individual pieces have had their prices slashed! Take a look at these two, for example. This great farmhouse style hutch with rolltop features heavy leaded glass and apothecary type drawers. Originally priced at $725, you can snag this piece for just $595 during our sale. Or maybe you’re looking for a piece with a little more age and character. Look no further than this gorgeous carved empire style sideboard. With a mirrored back and ornate pillars, this is a must-see and right now it has been marked down from $625 to $400.

Our sales don’t end with furniture! This ‘N That Finds is one of our eleven vendors participating in the sale with special pricing. Her adorable clothing is marked down 25% during this special event. Stock up now with pieces that will even layer to carry you throughout the year.

Many of our vendors are advertising sales of 10, 15, and 20% off everything in their spaces. Now is certainly the time to come in and check out Deep Creek Vintage. Help us bid summer goodbye with a sale that is too hot to handle. We’ll see you soon at the manor house! Don’t forget our new hours are Sunday 11-4, and Monday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 10-5. Can’t wait to spend the day with you!

Outdoor Trends Made Easy

Looking to spruce up your outside space? It’s a great time to do it! With the warm weather, we’re sure you’re spending  a lot of time outdoors, whether it’s watching the kids splash in the pool (or shoot each other with water guns) or seeing what blooming in your garden. Maybe you’re just spending the summer nights on the porch, enjoying the nice warm breeze. No matter what is drawing you outdoors, make sure the space you find yourself in is inviting. It’s easier than you think, and we’re here to help.

The front porch has taken over this year as the space people are spending more of their time. It’s becoming more of a social center, as people in the neighborhoods can frequently be found lounging with a glass of iced tea, maybe a good book, or the company of a neighbor. Rocking chairs are a staple, and what better than a vintage rocker? Sit down for a spell in a chair with charm and just enjoy the peace and the slower pace.

Gallery walls are also popular for outdoor decor, so you can take your favorite decorating trends and carry the theme from inside out. Is farmhouse your thing? Or are you feeling the nautical vibe? Whatever your preference, decorate the outdoor walls to help bring cohesion and a bit of fun.

20068340_10158921375120307_894432688_n   20117258_10158921374675307_2026689905_n

If you’re going to be spending so much time outside, then it’s natural you’ll want to sit and enjoy a meal. More and more people are bringing much of their daily life outside on nice days, including mealtime. What better than to sit outside in the sunshine, catch up on your day, and enjoy a burger off the grill, or even just relax and have a cup of tea?

20067681_10158921376745307_400659625_n   20046090_10158921377110307_923391952_n

Metal continues to be a hot trend in outdoor decor. It’s a great way to combine the natural with the industrial, or to add touches of whimsy to your garden. From elegant baskets to adorable birds, metal elements can help you add that missing touch.

No matter how you plan on sprucing up your outdoor space, we’re here to help. We’re open five days a week (closed Tuesday – Wednesday) and we’d love to help you make your ideas a reality. Come see us soon at the manor house!

 

Summer Switch Up

A time to relax. Refresh. Enjoy a little downtime with those we love. Cut back, kick off our shoes, and just exhale. What does summer mean to you? For many, it’s a time to finally rest from the hustle bustle of the daily routine and finally just catch your breath. And when you have a family business, sometimes you need to do just that!

Nature_Beach_Relax_034690_.jpg

This summer, we’re going to be instituting a small change. In addition to Wednesday being closed, Tuesday will also be closed here at Deep Creek Vintage. We know that most of you will not be effected by this because Deep Creek is your weekend destination. And that is exactly why we decided that this is a great day for us to be able to have a little down time. For those of you who do frequent us during the week, we hope that you will be able to shift your visits by a day during this season.

Another benefit to allowing us two days off? We will now have time to travel during the week to go picking and bring you even more of the things you love. Whereas before we were limited to where we could go and be back in the same day, we will be able to broaden our search and bring you more pieces we know you will love.

Deep Creek Vintage is a small, family business, and we know that so many of you support us because of that. We know that you will support us in this adjustment knowing that when we have time to refresh our souls, we will be able to have endurance to maintain this crazy journey, and knowing that this will allow us to serve you better.

Thank you for being our family, and we hope to see you soon at the Manor house! Starting July 11, we will be open Sundays from 11am –  4pm, and Monday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 10am – 5pm.
