It's hard to believe it, but we are celebrating the 10th Anniversary of Vintages this month! We opened Vintages of Los Gatos in April of 2003. Susan and I wanted to combined our diverse strengths with a common love of art and antiques to create a shop unlike any other. We took one part of antiques and mixed it with hand crafted art and distinctive gifts. That's how we envisioned Vintages ... and we think that's how we have made it successful.
In the first couple of years we offered antiques, gifts and home decor. Over time, we realized that there was a need for unique crafting supplies and accessories, so that became a growth area for us. In the past several years we have also added a lot of handcrafted, Made-in-America items. So that Vintages today is quite different than it was ten years ago. Instead of antiques, gifts and home decor, we now have antiques, gifts and crafts.
We have tried to listen to our customers and provide unique items ... things that you cannot find elsewhere. Thanks to all of you who shop with us, we are now starting another decade here in Los Gatos.
Let's get nostalgic for a moment and look back at some photos of Vintages in earlier years.
