We are so excited to welcome in March! A new month means that spring is coming quickly, and we love all of the opportunities a new season brings, both at home and at the store. To celebrate, here are a few of the Instagram feeds inspiring us lately and getting us ready for spring.
There may be snow in the forecast later this week, but I know spring is right around the corner. I am so looking forward to all of the exciting projects and adventures we have in store for Old Glory in the near future. I spent the day working on spring + summer print ads for Old Glory. Thanks to our talented designer Laura Kuhn for the creative collaboration! I can't wait to see what spring and summer bring!
Happy February! On this cold, icy day in Denver, I'm reminding myself that Spring is indeed coming! Here is one of our favorite spots in the store right now: the textured pillow gives warmth, and the fern hints at warmer days ahead. We love the way the pretty winter light streams in the windows and gives us simple reminders to enjoy every day, even the gloomy ones.
I have never been a big fan of new year resolutions. Instead, I like to make daily resolutions to work hard, laugh more, take more walks, connect with friends & family, make homemade meals, and similar simple ideas that make life more meaningful and keep me on track every day. I carry this mentality into Old Glory Style as well, taking each day at the store as an opportunity to enjoy the work I am so passionate about, to connect with customers and coworkers, and create simply beautiful spaces that reflect the way I live every day. I love working hard at work worth doing, and I am so lucky to be able to have such a meaningful outlet in Old Glory and to be able to go to work every day and do what I love.
Here are our found + favorites for the week!
We are so happy to call Colorado home, for so many reasons. And we have a new one to add to that list: all of the amazing vintage markets around the state! Here are three of our favorites that are coming up! We are excited to be surrounded by so many inspiring & creative entrepreneurs every day, and these market founders and fellow vintage lovers are no exception.
This great market grew out of the founders' own experience at other vintage markets and events around the state. They decided to combine their love of all things vintage and their passion for helping other creative small businesses and found Old House Vintage Market. This is quickly becoming a Colorado tradition! Enjoy 80+ artisans, creators, and vendors and an amazing selection of antique, vintage, and well-worn finds. You can read all about the event here and check it out on Facebook here.
Voted the best traveling vintage market in the USA by Flea Market Style Magazine, Rebel Junk Vintage Market is coming to Colorado! Created by Dixie DeRocher of the Funky Junk Sisters in Idaho, this traveling event features hand-picked vendors and their favorite hand-picked finds. Dixie is bringing this shopping extravaganza to the Ranch in Loveland in February. This is another can't-miss event and we are so excited that Colorado is the latest addition to the Rebel Junk Vintage Market roster of locations. Check out the event page on Facebook HERE and visit the Rebel Junk Vintage Market website HERE.
Founded by creative masterminds Jana Roach & Vanessa Pleasants, Vintage Whites Market has quickly grown into a well-loved and amazing traveling market. Their spring market in Colorado is at a new location this year, the National Western Complex! This is sure to be a great weekend of shopping and one-of-a-kind vintage finds from inspiring vendors.
