Retropolitan: The Shop

So, I briefly mentioned a few posts back that I had opened up a little shop with a good friend of mine.
It's really no big deal... just a way for us to showcase some of our work and hopefully be able to support our habit.
Our shop is unique in that we carry a little bit of old and a little bit of new...and little bit of old made new.

We are located in Sandy, Utah...688 East Union Square.
Here are a few pictures of some of my favorite things in the shop right now. I have a few special projects I'm working that I can hardly wait to show you, so stay tuned. And now...

Retropolitan, The Shop

My knock-off Anthro lamp, of course.
And another knock-off Anthro lamp my friend made. I love the shiny, silver base.

I absolutely love this dresser. I was a little depressed when it sold.

I love the wrought iron knobs

and subtle details

I love this dresser too. Not as much detail, but aren't the wrought iron pulls gorge?

And, of course, I had to incorporate something with numbers.

Of course, we had to have some vintage platters on hand for picture frames.

I love this vintage teaspoon rack. If she doesn't sell soon I might take her home.

I was drooling over this old trunk. It already sold. Another piece I was sad to see leave.
I hope you enjoyed your tour. If you are ever in the neighborhood, we'd love to see you.
