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.
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 (back room of the shop) has been very busy this year! Especially since March when I started making masks. Galatia who is our weekend gal has been helping me sew and as of today we have made 3200 masks!
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 my 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.
Masks for adults and kids
This has been a fun project especially when we can coordinate masks with vintage clothing. It’s our newest accessory so might as well have some fun with it while staying safe. We have over 100 different designs available in the shop along with Christmas and Winter designs.
Masks are $15 each. Made with 3-layers of cotton and a pocket inside just in case you want to add an extra layer of protection or filter. Elastic is super soft and stretchy. Your ears will thank you! Through December we will be offering a ‘Buy 3 get one FREE’ discount.
Thank you to all of you who have purchased our masks as they are what kept our business going since March.
Mask Misters and Oils
The first day I had to wait in line at the post office, wearing a mask, I realized that the onions and garlic I had for lunch did not create a pleasant breathing aroma. I had been wanting to create my own proprietary scents for roll-on cologne and candles. I decided that the first phase of this project would be for Mask Misters and Mini Oils. Misters can be sprayed directly into the mask or used as a room or body spray. Mini oils are pure essential oil blends. Place a drop onto the mask or use as a cologne.
I currently have five scents. Each has its own owl personality.
Dexter the Spectacled Owl – Peppermint and Sweet Lemon
Thaddeus the Great Grey Owl – Sandalwood, Cypress and Vanilla
Lady Lily the Snow Owl – Lavender, Peppermint and Vanilla
Jack the Spotted Wood Owl – Pine, Bergamot, Lemon, Spruce, Vanilla
Rosie the Elf Owl – Rose, Cardamom and Pine
2oz. Misters $13.95, 1ml. Mini blends $5
Featuring Vancouver fiber artist, Sharon Svec. All of these images are photographs taken by the artist and screen printed with natural dyes on cotton sateen. All one-of-a-kind! Sharon prints the panels and I sew them up. These masks make a beautiful gift while supporting a local artist, business and nature from the area. $25 each. ($10 of each sale goes back to the artist)
Owl Mask Coloring Kit
Thought this would be a fun project for the artsy individual or even for kids. Pick up your panel and a set of 5 fabric markers. Take it home to color. When finished return to the shop and within 48-hours I will have it sewn into a mask. Makes for a personal and unique gift. $20
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 (7 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!
I picked up a bin of beautiful wool fabrics last year and started to create standard scarves for our gents. Having great success with this product, decided to find some softer fabrics that gives you a lighter fashionable look. Only 8 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.

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

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. Covid-19 has definitely hit small businesses hard this year. This season, more than ever, it’s so important to be mindful of how and where you spend those shopping dollars.
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.
