We’re excited to announce a new venture at Prairie Sky Books; Prairie Sky Vintage!
As some of you may know, we’ve been carrying a selection of vintage decor pieces recently, and it’s been a hit!
Before I bought the store in October, we were carrying a few vintage items that I sourced, and I hosted a number of vintage pop-up sales at the shop. We always thought that the combination of vintage and our regular stock were a great combination, and I was in a unique position to get a feel for what Prairie Sky’s customers liked.
I’ve always loved vintage, (my first job at 15 was at a thrift store) and I come from a long line of collectors, who are always on the hunt. The items I love finding for Prairie Sky are bohemian, unique, colourful and unusual. I’m the kind of girl who gets excited about macrame plant hangers and fabrics, antique baskets and vintage wicker. My personal collections include midcentury-modern Cathrine Holm enamelware, Holt Howard vintage kitties (how did this happen?), embroidered art, Fiestaware and stacks of linens. I’m really drawn to ’60s and ’70s decor, and that’s what I tend to focus on when buying for our little boho-hippie store.
I hope you’ll follow along with us as we launch our new Instagram page, Prairie Sky Vintage! We’ll be posting some great vintage and one-of-a-kind items that will be for sale in the store and via Instagram.
