As the years go by and our unique vintage shop expands. We are growing our ‘vintage lifestyle’ products and are so excited for our holiday gift selection this year! Our goal is to become your one-stop-shop for vintage wearable and usable’s. We have added to our lineup of incredible local creators along with accessories and bath & body products from USA and Europe.
It is going to be a busy month as we have a few more items to arrive in the weeks ahead; Apparel and canvas shopping totes with our printed logo and vinyl owl logo stickers!

I started making a list of ALL our local artisan creations that we carry in our shop. WOW! Over the past few years we have added some incredible European companies (lotions, soaps, perfume, socks), local artisan creations, plus…. all the items I create for the store. The North Pole (our apartment) has been very busy this year!
So happy to present to you our wonderful and beautiful Holiday Gift Guide from Most Everything Vintage for most anyone in your life.

Creations by Alisa, a.k.a. me
I love to make items for the shop. With every year comes more and more items. One of my many goals with our store is to throw as little away as possible and recycle what I can; fabrics, buttons, trim, jewelry pieces, etc. With my skills as a creative (thank you mom and dad!) and a little resourcefulness, I am very happy to showcase my ‘North Pole’ creations.

Phone Scarves: I started creating these last Christmas season and sold out quick! I wanted to create a scarf that gave you style, warmth and purpose. This gives you all three! A scarf that keeps you warm around the neck, stylish in its many designs and fibers and a pocket for your phone, passport or wallet! Perfect for going out on a walk or slipping under a classic coat or blazer.
Made a total of 45 (10 different materials) phone scarves for this year. A great, unique gift made above our shop and in the beautiful Pacific NW!  $42 each.
The pocket gives you an extra space for a little extra gift if you wish!

Standard Scarves and triangle scarves: I picked up a bin of beautiful wool fabrics last year and started to create standard scarves for our gents and triangle scarves for our extra stylish ladies. Having great success with this product, decided to find some softer fabrics that gives you a lighter fashionable look. Only 15 standard  scarves available this holiday season, $25-$35

Bow Ties: I love that I get to sell these throughout the year. A great way for me to up-cycle bottoms of knickerbocker creations or skirt and dress alterations. Each are limited to one or two from each fabric. All are made from above our shop and with all the vintage buttons we can find. Each one is sized giving a plus one and minus one inch for the neck. Once it is sized for the neck, there is a clip on the front for easy attachment. NOW AVAILABLE……. mini bow ties to attach to doggie collars ($15ea. or 2 for $25) and bow ties for our little dapper (toddler) gents ($20)! Standard gentlemen bowties $45

IMG_846820’s headpieces and headbands: I love making these festive pieces. Have made 100’s over the past few years and with the year 2020 right around the corner, I know I will be making many more. Each unique piece has a substantial hair clip that can be worn alone or with one of my headbands. Clips range from $18 – $48 and headbands are $15 ea.

Santa Hats: I started making these 5 years ago for SantaCon. Had no idea that these pieces would become a creative tradition each year. Occasionally, we have wool and Pendleton shirts come in that have a few too many moth bites. This has been a great way to up-cycle these incredible shirts giving them fun new festive stories to tell. 6 available this year, $28.

Did you know that businesses with less than five employees make up 62% of all businesses in the US?
I know many of you support your local small retailers, eateries and drinkeries. I encourage you to get out there and support small on this day and every day. By shopping ‘small’ every one of your hard working dollars goes back into your local economy while helping the dreams of those in your community.
Owning and operating a small business is a lot of work. I would say that every week I work between 60-80 hours. Yes, it’s work….. but I love it and am blessed to do what I love!
If you need a map of other small local businesses downtown, stop on by and we will take care of you.

SHOP HOURS:

Look forward to seeing you soon!
