You could say collecting is in my blood. As a kid, I shadowed my grandma “Temah” on many weekends, on the hunt for antique and one of a kind pieces to offer to the East Texas area. She taught me to never go anywhere without cash and a flashlight. My old soul thrives on anything with a story- from antique cars to vintage art. I met my husband Doug at our alma mater, LeTourneau University, and when planning our wedding in 2006, I found myself drawn to using family heirlooms and antique pieces in the design. This snowballed into a business! Soon, friends and friends-of-friends entrusted me to style their events with unique finds. I also began selling collected pieces at Canton First Monday and in a storefront. I was a teacher at that time, but soon hung up my teaching hat to offer vintage and unique items full time.
Now as a mom of two amazing girls, Arden Rose and Sybbie Faye, I am thankful to be in a season of putting family first, while still selling and designing part time. Shop my collection at my booths in Vintage Soul on 4th St in Longview, and email for information on current interior and event design consulting services.
