A Touch of Whimsy

This colorful collection of folk art figurines will bring a smile to your face! Although not vintage, they are definitely collectible, mostly due to their charming designs. There are several pieces at Vintage Gal Antiques by Peggy Fairfax Herrick, a once-local gal. Peggy has always been a creative and artistic woman and it’s wonderful to see that she is now a well-known artist! She has sold dishware and other items through House of Hatten, Fitz and Floyd, Midwest of Cannon Falls, and the Museum of American Folk Art. These items are unavailable now except from collectors, so when I come across her pieces, I’m thrilled to be able to pass them on to my customers. Her wonderful sense of whimsy will delight you. Check out the selection of folk art collectibles here at Vintage Gal Antiques!

Make Mine Country

Since moving to my new location, there’s lots more room to display and sell larger items. Vintage Gal Antiques now has
some great primitive antiques and more country store
collectibles. Featured here are some of the country style
antiques and furniture.

In addition to my new location, I’ve acquired some great new neighbors-Will & Jeanne Clark. Will is the proprietor of 49 Wines/Wine Bar which is right next door. Another great reason to visit Vintage Gal Antiques~ shopping and wine~a perfect combination! Will is a fun-loving host and enjoys sharing his enthusiasm for wine with everyone that enters his establishment. There is a fabulous selection of wines from wineries up and down Highway 49 as well as some great micro beers. I’m happy to be part of this neighborhood!

New Location for Vintage Gal Antiques!

My dream has come true! I’ve moved my shop into a huge space! Six rooms-to be exact! And the best part is that it’s just around the corner from my old digs! I absolutely LOVE it! More room for more stuff, and it didn’t take long to fill it all up! In addition to all the “smalls”, I now have furniture and a room for “Cheap Thrills”, a boutique for recycled fashion, vintage and modern. The new address is 200C Main Street. I’m next door to 49 Wines/Wine Bar. There’s a great little porch with tables and chairs in front of my shop to sip a glass of wine from the wine bar. When you come to Downieville, please stop by and check out my new shop! It’s going to be a great summer!
