Growing up in a home filled with vintage furnishings, it was only natural that Wendy started collecting weathered treasures at an early age. As she got older, the treasures got bigger and when she married, her husband pleaded with her to either "stop buying or start selling". So she rented a booth and after only a year of selling her shabby re-worked pieces, she had created such a following that she needed more space. Two and then three booths later, Wendy could still not keep up with the demand and that was when she and her mom Diane teamed up and purchased a charming storefront in the Melrose District in midtown Phoenix.
Their cozy 8,000 square foot store offers a unique collection of vintage- chippy- pastel- shabby & chic furnishings softened with casual linen bedding and pale faded floral fabrics. From comfy soft slipcovered sofas and chairs that you can sink into, to beautiful chandeliers and lighting,. It is truly a one of a kind shop with items in every price range.
In addition to the home goods, Melrose Vintage also offers goodies for the crafty shopper with the Valleys best scrap-booking, paper arts and altered jewelry supply. Melrose Vintage is a local favorite as well as a destination for out-of-towners. It's the worth the trip and the kind of place you won't want to leave.
