This blog is devoted to the "second hand lifestyle" here in Salt Lake City, Utah. It will not be one of those slick and glossy blogs that romanticizes vintage items. There will be no photos of my beautiful home furnished with lovely antiques. This blog will be a down and dirty account of finding and rescuing vintage treasures.
My name is Kelly and this is my shop: Second Hand Chic. It's full of well-loved home furnishings, accessories and gently-worn clothing for women. Our mix of old and new reflects a new approach to feathering your nest. It's okay to have grandma's coffee table placed in front of a sofa from IKEA. It's a kinder, gentler attitude towards decorating. Your home should reflect the people who live there.
So stay tuned for more blogging adventures. Witness exciting (and sometimes dangerous) trips to the "DI" when the cart gets rolled out. Join us at weekend estate sales where we fight off spiders in the tool shed. Thrill at our roadside scavenging during city clean-up. Watch as we reveal little-known techniques for restoring that special prize we saved from certain death at the landfill.
We look forward to sharing our stories and hopefully entertaining and enlightening you. We want to hear of your second hand adventures, too.
