My name is Sam and I am a retrophile.
Originally from the PNW, I run on coffee and nostalgia. I get to rescue, repair and refinish vintage furniture and decor for a living! If I didn't have my shop, my house would be crammed full of all of the treasures that I sell. This way, I get to keep my sanity, my marriage and make a living!
My Grandma Shirley's Mid Century Modern home with olive green, striped, velvet wallpaper and gold shag carpet was my favorite place in the world. I felt safe and cozy there, and I try to recreate that feeling in my home and in my shop. Because of this, my style is a marriage of Mid Century Modern mixed with a boho vibe. It's eclectic, because I have a soft spot for all vintage, so there is no telling what you will find when you stop in to my shop! You will most definitely find vintage coffee mugs because I can't keep them all! Also, because of my plant mom status, you will also find vintage planters, plant stands and fun pieces to use for rock trays and base trays. I scour thrift shops to find the coolest, retro treasures so you don't have to! My furniture is lovingly refinished and ready for a new home.
I truly love what I do and admire the workmanship that originally went into these vintage and antique pieces that I refurbish. I try to honor that by listening to the pieces as they let me know what they want to become. I am also available for custom furniture refinishing. Contact me for a quote!
My workshop is currently in Chesapeake, VA and my pieces can be found in my curated shop inside The Industrial Cottage at 2500 B Church St. Norfolk,VA.
