Who, What, Where Wednesday – 4 Quarters Timeless Vintage

Print Friendly

Paths are worn between the houses of Janet Reed, Marian Taylor, Sandy Husmann, and Misty Hallisey  (a.k.a. the “4 Quarters”).  We’ve all memorized each other’s garage codes. Simply put, we are friends and neighbors who enjoy junking, shopping, and creating together!

We’ve all had other jobs (art teacher, travel agents, nurse) but thought it would be fun to do something with those creative ideas that we shared with one another. After filling up our homes and garages with our found treasures and creations, we had two options — stop shopping or start selling!  Our adventure started with a small booth in an antique mall, and since then, we’ve upgraded and moved five times!  We opened our doors to our current storefront this past August, and what a blessing it has been.  We are proud to be carrying American Paint Company.

Our store features vintage home décor.  If we love it old, we keep it old — rusty, chippy, and “loved” are our favorites!

If what we find needs a facelift, we’ll put our spin on it to breathe new life into worn treasures.

You’ll even find hand-crafted items, like our 8 foot barnwood table that we built specifically to use for the classes we teach. Yes, we have power tools, and we’re not afraid to use them!

Although we may never be able to park a car in the garage again, the 4 of us agree — it doesn’t feel like a “job” when we get to meet awesome people, share and inspire, and do what we love every day!
