A little store update.

Hello friends! We just thought that we would check-in and give you a little update on how things have been going at our vintage boutique. It's hard to believe that it's already been six months since we first opened our doors! Seriously, it's been half a year already? Wow, time sure does fly when you're having fun! We were really lucky to have an unseasonably warm winter this year, which resulted in quite a bit more foot traffic than we had originally anticipated, and now that the snow has melted we have been busier than ever! 

We also recently received two very exciting press mentions that we wanted to share with you: First, a local newspaper called Uptown Magazine took a poll and we were voted #2 for 'Winnipeg's Best Vintage Shop' and we were also voted #2 for 'Best New Shop in Winnipeg'! Forever 21 beat us for best new shop, but really, being second to Forever 21 is still a huge compliment!

Secondly, we recently did an interview for a Swedish newspaper called Svenska Dagbladet which we were told is Sweden's version of the New York Times! What an honor! The interview was primarily about our mobile shop and will hit news stands next Saturday. We can't wait to get our hands on a copy!

Speaking of our mobile shop, we have our first event of the year booked! We will be participating in the Canada Day festival again this year and that takes place on June 30 & July 1st in Osborne Village in Winnipeg. So, if you live nearby feel free to come by and say hello!

Alright, that's all for now lovelies, we hope you have a fantastic weekend!

Stef & Erin


  1. Perhaps you would like to bring your mobile shop to the Muddy River Marketplace on August 25th, 2012? More info on our website:

  2. How excited to see your small business booming! The shop front looks so cute!

  3. Congratulation ladies! I just found out about you ladies the other week when Stef's picture was under favorites on instagram and was just so excited to find out about your ladies business! But then to find out you ladies were in Canada made me a little sad! Because from here to Winnipeg is 28 hour drive! But one day I will make my way up there! Keep on doing what you ladies are doing, it's great! If you ladies ever decide to come to the states, you should make you way down the east coast! (:

  4. Such exciting news all around! I agree, the shop front is super cute!

  5. Congratulations! I´m swedish an curious about how come you got an interview with a swedish paper? AND you´re wearing Ugglebo clogs :) Well, we do love vintage over here ;)


  6. Y A Y ! Major congrats to you girls, you are so inspiring in all you do it's no surprise so much success is coming your way!

    Happy 6 months birthday to the mortar and brick store, I hope I visit Winnipeg one day so I can check it out myself! Being a small business owner is full of challenges, you can be very proud of yourself :)
