Growing up around lots of Kentucky Farms, having a childhood of playing in the barn, working the fields and swinging on my grandma's front porch is how life was! I remember chasing Lightning Bugs, swimming in the creek, getting up with the roosters to go to yard sales, and heading out for a bale breaking in the afternoon. Soon it was just so common and habitat and still is. To find those treasures you remember and hold dear to you as a child again. I love finding those special pieces, the ones that aren't around anymore. The unique finds you want your daughter to hold special. The pieces that have a history, a story or have been loved so much.
I began Vintage Character in the Summer of 2015. With the determination to create a place where friends,family and guests could find treasures that could be loved again or new pieces to add to existing heirlooms. The Old Guyton Hardware Store was transformed into a special place to visit. Unlike no other shop, the ceiling and walls hold many stories and history to the town. With the original tin ceiling tiles, to the massive store counters, and the stunning views of the Loft upstairs, this old 1800's building is one of a kind.
Our shop has become a destination for many guests as they travel through our quaint little town of Guyton. Many old faces and lots new. We love seeing and meeting all of you guys. Many of you stay social with us on Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest. I am always posting about or travels for new pieces, or the most unusual finds. Stay in the loop and follow along. Many first dibs are grabbed on the road before they hit the floor.
