Vintage rugs. Shaggy pillows. Aged brass bowls. These are the things that make us swoon.
So when these three collectors joined our store vendor mix last month, our hearts could hardly handle it. Learn a little bit about these inspiring small businesses below — and come see their beautiful loot in store now.

Founder: Kristen White
Why did you start Lou Collection? I began curating my collection based on my love for vintage rugs. After purchasing my fair share of rugs, I learned so much from some pretty amazing veterans of the biz (most of whom are still mentors and friends). An unfortunate part of the rug business has become a distrust in dealers. After meeting so many of the “good guys,” I wanted to join them in bringing honesty back to their age-old industry.
Why do you love small business life? I absolutely love being a small business owner because I’m allowed to be creative and challenged each day while being a stay at home mom to my daughters.
Something only your besties know about you? I tell awful stories! Everybody who knows me, knows this.
