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!

Make it a Handcrafted Holiday

‘Tis the season to finish up that shopping list! This year, make it a handcrafted holiday by supporting your local artists and craftsmen. Make your gifts stand out and be just as individual as the recipients. Whether you are searching for a hostess gift for your friend who is throwing that fabulous ugly Christmas sweater party, or your hard-to-buy-for sister-in-law, we have a great selection of gifts that are sure to please!

Looking for a piece of furniture that’s been hand-painted to create a one-of-a-kind look? We have quite the variety!

What about holiday decor that’s creative and eye-catching? It’s great when you can repurpose pieces to get the effect you desire, and luckily we have vendors who know how to do just that!

Is art your thing? Good thing we have artists here who can help you add a little visual interest to your walls. But don’t just take my word for it.

No matter who is on your list, your budget, or your taste, we have handcrafted pieces that will help you shop in confidence. Stop in this weekend, and maybe even find a piece or two for yourself. You can always send your Santa in here to shop, with ideas in mind. See you soon at the Manor House!

Here we come a-caroling

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Here at Deep Creek Vintage;
Take a look all around the shop, decorated from bottom to top
With candy canes and embellished silverplate aglow.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas,
Right within our store,
But the prettiest sight to see is the holly that will be
On our own front porch.

A pair of decorated skates and an old iron gate
Is the wish of Barbara and Ben;
An old vintage sled and a Frenchy twin bed
Is the hope of Janice and Jen;

And Mom and Dad can hardly wait for school to start again.
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Ev’rywhere you go;
There’s a tree on the farm table, one in the front room as well,
And vintage ornaments to hang on every bough.

orns
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas;
Soon the bells will start,
And the thing that will make them ring is the carol that you sing
Right within your heart.

Happy holidays from Deep Creek Vintage, and come visit us for all your holiday decorating and shopping needs!

Keeping it Local

We are always grateful for the support of our community, but there is one day a year that is special. Small Business Saturday is coming up in about a week’s time. So what exactly is Small Business Saturday? And why is it so important? It’s a topic that any local business man or woman loves to discuss.

127d1045-8bd8-42d7-8bfff0e31bb018ba

Black Friday is traditionally the day known for crowded malls and the shop-till-you-drop flurry as people rush to begin their holiday shopping. But the day after that has taken on new significance. Known as Small Business Saturday, it is a day to skip the large box stores and instead visit all the small, locally owned businesses. It’s a day to make your dollars count as you put them back into the community where you live, play, and raise your family. Local retailers love this day because for them it represents a promise that in the year to come, they can count on community support. They see that customers understand the hard work, love, and sacrifice put into being retailers in the community. It’s a day to celebrate all that being a local business means.

We are a store that is built on local vendors. We are your neighbors and your friends. We are the people you run into the grocery store, and the people you sit next to at church. We are PTA moms, and grandmothers and grandfathers. We love what we do, and love being part of a small, local business. And we appreciate the support of the community we live in.

So come join us! We’ll be open Saturday, November 26th from 9am until 5pm. Yes, we’re even opening early! We’d love to help you with your holiday shopping so that you can make sure each gift you give is truly unique, and that you can say with pride that you supported small, local businesses.

End of Summer Extravaganza

Have Labor Day plans? If not, you do now! We’re planning an End of Summer Extravaganza! We need to clear room to get ready for fall, but we need your help! So what does that mean? Well, it means that this weekend is the perfect time to beat the heat and come to the Manor House to find the perfect piece that’s just calling your name.

We’re going to have special prices on several pieces, but we can’t guarantee they will last long! Some of our vendors are joining in the fun with specials and new pieces just in time for the holiday. We know you’re ready for a change in your home. Come find it at Deep Creek Vintage!

We’ve added new things to the porch, and to the shop, and we’re ready for you to shop till you drop! So come on out and join us at the Manor House, and see why once you shop here, you don’t need to go anywhere else.

The sun is shining!

Lately there has been this weird yellow glow in the sky.  It’s warm, and bright, and bounces off everything it touches. And we are loving it!  The sun is out, and with it, warmer temperatures. Kids are outside playing, the plants that people labored over are finally showing growth and new blooms, and we are all enjoying a break from the rain, no matter how short-lived it may be.

So what are you big plans for the weekend? For many, it’s a longer weekend as businesses close to give a moment to remember those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our country. If your family is anything like my family, longer weekends mean attacking a project from the to-do list. Are you looking to redecorate a room in your home? Or maybe you’ve been itching to finally get a piece painted this weekend, and are ready to grab the supplies you need.  Or, you just want to enjoy the weekend with some leisurely shopping.  Lucky for you we’re open all weekend and have lots of new pieces, and new vendors who are working hard to get their space ready for you to shop!

Feeling the Holiday Crunch

In exactly one week, most living rooms around the country will be covered in wrapping paper and facing the aftermath of Christmas morning.  In the meantime, everyone has realized that time is running out to make sure that everyone on their lists has something under the tree.
