  • Pick of the Week

    I haven't done one of these in awhile, but I have picked up a couple of treasures recently that are pretty special.  The one I am going to share today is not super unique.  You can find them pretty easily, either on craigslist, etsy or a local garage sale.  The question most people ask is, "what do I do with it?"  They usually take up a good bit of space, don't work and like this one, weighs a TON!    

    The Classic Typewriter!

    This typewriter is a beauty. It has such a masculine quality that really gives it a bold presence, especially in photos!

    So what do I do with this thing that weighs a TON and isn't really usable to write my first novel?

    Take pictures with it, of course.

  • Vintage Mini Sessions

    It may not have felt exactly like spring these past few days, but we know its close.  So its time for spring cleaning, projects at home and spring pictures.  There is nothing cuter than kids posing for spring pictures.  That's why The Vintage Company was so excited to partner up with Jessica Brenner and do a vintage mini shoot.  A mini shoot lasts only 15 minutes, you get to choose your vintage style and you get edited photos on a cd to use as you like:)

    Space is running out, so be sure to call and book your time slot!

  • The South Louisiana Bridal Expo

    This weekend was The South Louisiana Bridal Expo at the Houma Civic Center.  This was the first bridal show for "The Vintage Company" and it was a great success.  We met lots of fantastic brides who were loving all our vintage goodies.

    We shared a booth with a good friend of ours, not to mention a talented photographer, Jessica Brenner.  If you haven't already, head over to our website and check out all the new things happening at The Vintage Company.

    Hope you all had a great weekend!

  • Exciting Year

    Hello Everyone,

    Yes, I know its been awhile.  Its not because I haven't been doing anything.  Its actually the exact opposite.  After the show last year I felt a little burnt out, like I usually do after I have been painting non-stop for weeks and hauling heavy awkward furniture all over the city of Houma. (I do have a very nice husband who helps haul my furniture, and who also lovingly says, "why don't you start sewing pillows!") But still, after the show I really didn't want to look at a paint brush much less pick up any kind of furniture,for a good couple of weeks.  But after needed down time, I start to get excited about what will come next. What came next was enough to get me very excited!!! 

     At the show in September someone came up to my booth and because they loved the way it was styled asked if  I would be interested in helping with her daughter's wedding.  To be perfectly honest I had never really thought about going in that direction with my business, but after thinking about it for a split second I said, "sure!"

    A couple months passed and we met at there venue, Ducros Plantation, to discuss the plan.  After that first meeting I was hooked, I knew that to style this wedding with all my vintage treasures would not only be fun but this was something that I could & would be really good at.  After meeting the bride for the second time at her venue I started to think about the future.  Would this be something that I wanted to do once or something that I wanted to pursue??  The answer was YES, this was something that I wanted to pursue!!

    In order to really pursue this, I was going to need some help, after all I do have a little bit on my plate as it is.  And as nice as my husband is, he already has a business, and doesn't really share my love of vintage, in fact he just says things are old!! It's called VINTAGE!  So that's where Crystal Holliday, of iiicreative, comes in.  She has been a friend of mine for several years and shares my love of vintage.  After a casual lunch discussing our ideas, and realizing this could actually work!! We got to work, and boy have we been working!!! 

    Introducing The Vintage Company:

    To say we are excited about this new venture is a understatement!!  I am looking forward to sharing many new things as the months go by.......but for now just know I'm still here and still working!

About Me

My name is Mandy and I love finding something old, outdated and giving it a new life using paint. The process I use to restore my furniture is an Art. Not only do I tediously pick and build every piece by hand but I only get pieces that I truely love. If I love a piece of furniture I will spend the time that is needed to hand-paint, distress, sand and wax every nook and cranny.
