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.

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?

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!

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.

Keeping it Fresh

It’s always exciting to us when we can offer you something fresh and new, and give you an extra reason to come visit us at the manor. We know that Deep Creek Vintage is full of your favorite vendors. And now we’re happy to welcome two more on board!

With a touch of whimsy, the Altered Piece is a vendor focused on mixed media. These pieces truly speak with their positive messages and quotes. They make great additions to the home or office to bring a touch of personality, and would also work well for incorporating into rustic wedding themes.

This N That Finds is already gaining popularity with her great fashionable pieces. These clothes are both comfortable and trendy, and with their great price point, are easy to incorporate into your wardrobe. These vintage-inspired pieces and accessories are easy to love!

Come by soon to check out the new vendors, and to see what your favorite vendors have in store for you! We’re working hard to restock from our birthday celebration and make sure we always have plenty for you to choose from. Come see us soon at the manor! We’re currently open Sunday – Tuesday and Thursday – Saturday. If you haven’t been by lately, it’s a great day for a drive!

 

Happy birthday to….us!

Can you believe it? Deep Creek Vintage is getting ready to celebrate its fourth birthday! We are so thankful for everything that has happened over the past four years, and for all of you for joining with us on this fun, crazy, unpredictable journey! As our way of saying thank you, we’re throwing a birthday party, but we’re giving you the gifts – with a day full of savings!

June 17th, many of our vendors will be holding sales as our way of thanking you, the customers, who have allowed us to chase our passions and follow our dreams. It’s fun to look back at how it all started, and see how far we’ve come! Come join us for a great day and help us celebrate as we head into another four years of even more wonderful things!

Rainy Day Retail Therapy

I don’t know about you, but I am ready for a few days of sunshine! While my flowers may be loving all of this wet weather, my heart longs for the sun to come and stay for a little while. I know that soon summer will be here, and with it some warmth, and I am getting more excited every day! And while we wait for those grey clouds to go away, it’s a great time to do a little retail therapy!

The manor is full of amazing new treasures now that the vendors have restocked from Market Days! We always aim to keep things looking different so that every time you come in, you find a new treasure or two. And it seems like with this wet weather, our vendors have been busy getting new pieces ready for you!

These are just a few of the new things you’ll find at Deep Creek Vintage. You know you’ve been cooped up in the house for too long. Come on over this weekend and see what we have in store for you! Whether you’re looking for home or garden, or even a treat for yourself, we have something that’s sure to please! Come visit us at the manor. We’re open every day except Wednesday, and we’d love to see you!

Thank you!

Thank you so much to everyone who helped to make our Spring Market Days a success! We had so much fun catching up with all our wonderful customers last weekend. The lawn seemed to have a steady steam of traffic, despite the weather, and we are so thankful for everyone who braved the rain to come out and support the event. From the comments we received, it seems a good time was had by all! And from the full arms headed back to the cars, it looked like everyone found lots of wonderful things they needed to bring back home.

Another big thank you goes to our vendors, both our regular house vendors, and our vendors who traveled and set up to be a part of the market. It’s always wonderful when we can offer a large variety of items, and we love all the new pieces we see every market. We found quite a few goodies ourselves, and that’s always half the fun!

Our last thank you goes to Tim Roy, without whom we could not manage to hold events like this. Whether he’s handling parking so that it doesn’t turn into a nightmare, carrying large pieces of furniture like a pro, or helping customers with prices, he’s always there to save the day. Tim even serves as our security, staying at the manor overnight to make sure that all the merchandise in the tents remains secure. While today may be his 60th birthday, he certainly can keep up with the 20 year-olds when it comes to endurance, and we are thankful for him! And we’re glad he got some much needed rest when the market had concluded.

If you missed the market, don’t worry! We will be having another one in the fall, so you have time to make room in your home. In the meantime, we’re open six days a week and have lots of amazing pieces. Our vendors are quickly restocking to get ready for our birthday celebration next month! Thank you again for helping make the market so wonderful! We really do have the best customers!

Time to Make a Market!

It’s coming upon one of our favorite times of the year – our Spring Market! Next weekend, May 6 and 7, our field will be filled with fabulous treasures, and the house busting at the seams with amazing pieces ready to head to their new homes. In addition to our wonderful Deep Creek Vintage vendors, we will be joined by other great local artisans and dealers of antiques and collectibles. If you’ve been looking for a reason to come spend some time at Deep Creek, you’ve found it!

Saturday we’re opening early for people to come shop until they drop! We will be open at 9am and will remain open until 5pm. Sunday we will be open from 10am until 3pm. Grab a friend, grab a truck, and come spend your weekend with us May 6-7. This event will be rain or shine.

 

We are always so appreciative of all our customers who come year after year to our markets. We’re glad you enjoy them as much as we do! Tell a friend, and see all the new things we have for you this year. We’re working hard to get the house in order, and there will be new vendors this year, too. Can’t wait to see you soon as we make a market! Don’t forget we’re easy to find from I-95, and an easy drive from Richmond, Charlottesville, or Washington, DC.
