Shop Small Day 215: Re-Joyce

If your idea of a perfect weekend involves antiquing, you’ll be happy to know you don’t have to drive three hours for a great shop. In fact, for the past two years there’s been a great store filled with treasures only twenty minutes from my house, I had no idea. It was another great find after the Country Market discovering Re-Joyce.

Inspired by Pinterest DIY projects? You’ll find all of your materials here!

Not so crafty & you want something already re-purposed and ready to use? That’s here too.

Collectors, there’s definitely treasures for you too, but I figured that went without saying.

For me, vintage and antique stores are more like art. I don’t necessarily care who made it, I just have to love it. Even better when it’s affordable.

Cleaning out your attic? Re-Joyce will consign your items. There are several “vendors” who also have their own little corner of the shop; most have a theme: retro kitchen, war antiques, books, jewelry, and some with a little bit of everything.

I didn’t meet Joyce the day I was in, but it was helpful that the woman working consigned the pieces I had questions about.

But, I have a feeling items don’t last for long. I called today about a piece I saw on their Facebook page, sadly it had already sold. She did mention that they receive lockers fairly often, so I guess I’ll have to follow their page for the next one!image

Re-Joyce doesn’t have a website, so make sure you follow their Facebook page for new listings.

As soon as I can figure out where it’ll go, I’m going back for this adorable corner desk!

What is your favorite item you’ve found at an vintage/antique store?
