It’s Always Fun at the Market

We’re still recovering from the market here at Deep Creek Vintage, and what a market it was! The weather finally cooperated with us, and Saturday could not have been a sunnier day to shop till we dropped! Our market continues to grow, and we were so blessed to have such wonderful vendors joining us this year as the fields were filled with amazing creations. Just take a look!

Although the forecast on Sunday might not have been the most promising, we are thankful to everyone who stuck it out! We never let a little bad weather rain on our parade. No matter what the sky might look like, it’s always a good day to shop!

Unfortunately we were so busy shopping and helping customers that we didn’t get pictures of many of our vendors! From handcrafted jewelry to antique furniture to stylish new clothing, our customers seemed to all find something they needed to bring home!

A huge thank you to all our customers for making this market part of your weekend! We know that you have come to look forward to these events as much as us, and we are always so appreciative of your support! Also, thank you to all the vendors who joined us. Some vendors have become old friends, and some we met for the first time and really enjoyed the weekend together.

We’ve been busy restocking the house, so come by and see everything new! We’ll see you soon at the manor!

Christmas Blessings

Are you ready for Christmas? Another year has flown by, and in a few short days’ time, we will be gathered with our families to celebrate this special day. And as we pause to look back on the year, we feel blessed to have spent so much of our time with you.

We are truly lucky to have a space where we can not only do what we love, but meet such amazing people. So many of you have become more than just customers as we have grown to know each other. It is certainly true that you can’t walk into a shop like ours without having at least one item remind you of a memory or event from your past. We treasure all the stories we have heard as you have found those items that call back a happy moment or a person you hold dear. We enjoy finding these objects, but it is the personal history shared that is the reason we do what we do.

There have been children’s tea sets that will be under the tree this year as mothers hope to recreate special memories they have of  tea parties with their daughters. Pocket watches that reminded someone of a grandfather who was never without the time and a butterscotch candy. Humidors that brought back the smell of a father unwinding from a day at the office. And of course ornaments hung with care that were just like the ones they remember being allowed to look at, but not touch.

No matter what you have come in search of this year, we hope that we have been able to help. We thank you for continuing to support us through all our growth and changes. And we thank you for sharing part of your history with us. We are excited for a new year, and all the “new” stories we will share together. We have many more events that will be happening in 2018, and we can’t wait to enjoy them together. Thank you for being a part of the Deep Creek Vintage family. We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

 

 

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!

22854906_10159403151685307_531026554_n   22854780_10159403151680307_694423157_n

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!
