The Roving Home February


February This

issue brings all sorts of excitement: new (to us) lamps, vintage charts and a few pieces from our studio: handmade twig hook boards (practical!) and handpainted taxidermy. Which you really need to check out to fully appreciate. Feeling the winter blahs? Our winter beach party will cheer you up. We even provided homemade handheld apple pies along with an antique quilt to keep party-goers warm! And

please head over to Facebook where we are running our I Love My Vintage _____ Contest through the month of February. Just send in a snapshot of your favorite item, have your friends & family vote and the winner receives a very cool vintage school map! But

our Facebook contest is just preparation for something even bigger: our Spring show & Pop-up Shop which opens April 22nd at the Tusinski Gallery. The opening date falls on Earth Day, which is perfect as the show is called Home(re)Cycled and explores the relationship we have to our old things and the relevance vintage pieces still hold for us today. Hope to see you there, and thanks so much for checking in with The Roving Home - we would love to keep in touch!
