We now have a second store carrying our line of greeting cards -- Just Write ARTS. These are at LOOT Vintage and Gifts in Soquel at 3011 Main St. These are a selection from the same cards we have carried for the past couple of years (and a few new ones) at Vintages. Nancy selected a dozen of her favs. Thanks.

Vintages will Close its Doors on June 25th

Last Day to Save 50%
is June 25th 

We would like to thank all our customers for shopping with us these past 14+ years. We truly appreciate all the well wishes we have received since we announced that we were closing our store. Over all these years we have met some wonderful folks, learned a lot from you and shared so much with you.

Now it is time to move on ... to do something different. We plan to have our greeting card line available in other stores (see below for some news on that) and spend time creating more art, jewelry and stuff.
Watch this blog for what's next!
Again, THANK YOU for your support.

We are Retiring .. sort of


After 14 years of running our store in Los Gatos, we have decided to retire from the brick-and-mortar business and move on to other things. We have had a good time doing this all these years and appreciate your patronage ... but all good things come to an end ... sooner or later. 

We will be pursuing our own line of greeting cards and notes ... and our Etsy stores (Pretty Ribbons and Lopaka Designs) will still be open.

Watch here for what we will be up to next and where our cards will be available ... more to come!

Stop in the shop and take advantage of 
FANTASTIC SALE PRICES 
ON EVERYTHING


So you can shop, shop, shop ...
we will be open 
Tuesdays through Saturdays 11-6 
and Sundays 11-5

Need Some Help Reading Fine Print? We Got What You Need.


Reading the fine print ... reading the menu in a dark restaurant ... seeing the details on an antique ... finding the needle in a haystack? All of this can be daunting to tired eyes!

Well at vintages we have always had magnifiers to help you out ... decorative and functional ... new and antique. Now Lopaka Designs has just listed more of one of our customer favorites ... decorative magnifiers on necklaces that are a BIG help.

Each of these are made using an optician's test lens mounted on a long satin cord and hand decorated with vintage beads. Five new, one-of-a-kind designs. These are $24.95 each and come in a black organza bag so you can wear them or carry them in your pocket or purse. Either way the magnifying glass is ready for you when you need it.
