On the horizon

It has been said that a rolling stone gathers no moss.  Over at Deep Creek Vintage we always seem to be in the middle of a rock stampede. But what fun is it to remain stagnant? As we move forward in the business, we learn what areas our customers rely on and we focus on them. We make changes, and tweak things to improve. We also learn what our customer base is looking for that we  are not currently able to provide, and we spend time researching if this is something we can do, and do well. Curious yet? Good. Because we have some news about exciting things on the horizon for Deep Creek Vintage.

What’s first? For many of our customers, dealing with helping a family member move to a new phase of life, such as an assisted living environment, is something that can prove to be not only stressful, but also extremely time consuming. Some don’t know where to begin, and the process is just overwhelming. We are happy that we are now able to help. Introducing Deep Creek Vintage Estate Services, where we help take some of the burden off your shoulders. We will come to the residence, help process the items, prepare them for the sale, and hold the estate sale for you. We know how hard this process can be, and we want to help our customers in any way we can.

That’s not the only exciting news for Deep Creek Vintage. Soon we will be adding a “new” building to the property. Located directly behind the manor house is an old cottage, in sad shape. It reminds us a lot of what the manor looked like when it was originally taken over. But, with a lot of TLC and hard work, we know that it can be made wonderful. Soon you will see lots of changes happening in this house, as it eventually becomes home to the studio, and we will be able to have lots of storage move here, too.

What else does this mean? Well, as we move some of our storage out of the manor, it means that spaces will be freed up for new vendors to come in. So if you have been considering becoming a vendor here, contact us now and find out more information!

We’re  excited about all the wonderful things that are coming. And we’re happy that it means even more ways that we can cater to our customers. In the meantime, you’ll see us plugging along to continue to bring you more of the wonderful things you’ve come to expect at Deep Creek. Stop by today to see all the new pieces, and if you are interested in joining our team, or learning more about our estate services, just contact us.  See you soon at the manor!

Counting Our Blessings

Thanksgiving has passed, and we all hope you had a wonderful day surrounded by family and friends, plenty of food, laughter, and fun.  There is no question as to what we are thankful for at Deep Creek Vintage!  With all the hustle and bustle of the upcoming holiday, it’s always nice to take a moment to breathe and reflect on everything that we often take for granted.  We have made so many wonderful friends this year.  When a customer enters the Manor or Marketplace a stranger, it is so nice when they leave a friend.  We have thoroughly enjoyed the conversations we have had with each of you.  In the same way that each piece of furniture has a story, each customer has a story.  We love knowing that a dresser is going to a new home, but love it more when we know that the dresser will be used in the bedroom of a child that is eagerly anticipated by a family who have been searching for the perfect piece since they first learned they were expecting.  Or a bedroom set that was painted with care now is the mark of accomplishment by a young woman who has found the perfect job, the perfect home, and is moving onward and upward in the world as she flourishes in her independence.

Our painting classes have grown and changed, and will continue to evolve as we grow into our Marketplace studio.  We are so thankful for the opportunity this space allows, and for the interest and spirit of fun our customers have shown by jumping in and joining us.  They say if you love what you do, you never work a day in your life, and we feel this is truly the case here.  We will continue to offer new classes in the coming months, and different chances to experiment, learn, and grow with the new products we offer.  We know the holidays are a busy time of year, so look for a fresh class schedule after the new year.

The Marketplace is changing daily, and we are so thankful to all the vendors who have joined our family.  We have vendors who have made antiques a lifelong business and vendors who have recently decided to make an interest something more.  We are thankful for each one who has decided to call Deep Creek Vintage home.

Thanks Y'all

A Studio to Learn, Teach, and Have Fun!

Have you been anxious to learn the basics of painting furniture, but unsure of where to start?  Or maybe you can handle painting with one color, but want to learn some of the fancy tricks.  We now have a studio that can take you from hesitantly picking up a paintbrush to brandishing it like VanGogh!

workshops

Cheryl of Deep Creek Vintage and Erica of Tattered Elegance have teamed up to lead classes in our new studio, located in the Marketplace.  We offer a variety of classes ranging from the ABCs of APC to a class where you bring your own piece and leave with a fully finished product.  If painting isn’t your interest, we also offer classes in a multitude of other artistic avenues.

We can cater classes to your group as well, so if you are looking for a fun night out with the girls, an afternoon free with your moms’ group, or one-on-one instruction to take your skills to the next level, contact us to see what we can set up!

Hope to see you soon, and make sure you check out our studio the next time you are in the Marketplace!  You might find one of our vendors there taking advantage of the space, or catch a class in progress!
