Vintage Goodness


There's a cute new shop in town.....well, pretty new. Amanda Michas opened Blue Owl Boutique late last year. She and her sisters sell a mix of new, vintage and re-worked items. It's beautiful.
Amanda told me that she got the name of her shop from a small cafe that her grandfather owned in the 40's and 50's, called Blue Owl. Love a good back story.

Here's a little of what she's got in store these days. There's a high turn over of product as much of it are one-offs.  I've already found a number of things that work well with the mostly mid-century modern stuff we have at home. Happiness.






If you're in the Vancouver area, they're having their "opening" party tonight from 7pm to 10pm at 2308 West Broadway. Below is their video "invite". I've watched it several times.

Hope to see you tonight! Back on Friday.

This looks like such a great shop, my kind of shop too! My mom gave me some of her vintage china and I love mixing them in with my new stuff. Oh and that is one cute video invite :)

Too bad I live in like a whole other country. But if the video is any indication, as well as the photos, this is definitely my type of store. Good luck to the sisters in this endeavor.
