how to create a space for less

featured post

Shop vintage!!  We love to reduce, reuse, UPCYCLE!  You'll find high quality, unique pieces at a small cost when you think outside of the box stores.

at how to host, we care.

We want to make a BIG impact with a small footprint.  

minimize your footprint.


buy top quality for less.


Take this bed frame for example.  Antique, beautiful and FOURTY DOLLARS!  You can add custom style and flare to your home, save cash and the environment.  Plus, no one else will have it.

This glass ware is real crystal, stunning and cost next to nothing.  Why buy boring, mass produced housewares, when you have beauties like these at your fingertips?  For less.

reinvent classic pieces.


This Tea Cart is to date, one of my most adored finds.  I purchased this at a garage sale from a charismatic older woman.  It was her grandmothers piece and had been passed down from generation to generation.

I will cherish this piece, just as she did within her family for over a hundred years.
