In Remembrance

The Scouts encourage you to take a moment this weekend to remember the reason we have Memorial Day. It's not about the pool opening or the picnics; although those are certainly nice things. It is to honor those before us: the brave men and women in uniform, who have given the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. Vintage Scout Interiors will be closed for Memorial Day weekend and will reopen Tuesday at 10:00am.

We hope we didn't catch anyone off guard with the sign on our door this morning; we were out Scouting! We got a lead from a fun new client about a barn sale about an hour and a half from here, so we decided to go check it out.So glad we did; there were tons of great finds for the Shop. And our bonus: We drove right past one of our guilty pleasures- Der Dutchman Restaurant. Yum... broasted chicken! Sorry we had to tempt you with that.

Back to the sneak peek of some of the things you'll see back at shop. A set of three photographs featuring vintage airplanes. We'll probably send them out for reframing- Scout Style!

Darling little painted tray. Pair of seriously hot creamware lamps. Gotta find some shades for these babies, and when we do, they will not be in the shop long. Gorgeous!
Set of great books- Seeing Europe With Famous Authors. Don't let the little dent in the corner scare you away. This set is perfect for filling a bookshelf; a very pretty bluish-gray. We picked up several other books as well.
Cute cake plate. Light aqua colored depression glass. Call dibs on it now.
And there is more! We apologize if any of you stopped by this morning to find us gone, but we promise, you will not be disappointed with our finds. If you are interested in any of our finds, send us an email at info@vintagescout.com. We'll even be happy to arrange shipping if you don't live in the Dayton/Cinci/Columbus area.

Don't Rock the Boat

The rain continues to fall here in Dayton and this morning I contemplated building an arc, which lead me to imagine, "How would I design a yacht if I had one?" So, be inspired by some images of lovely yacht interiors.
As I searched for luxury boat interiors, many of them were contemporary designs. I would want my little dingy to be more of who I am, traditional with a modern edge. Who wouldn't want Kelly Wearstler to design their yacht? Hi little lucite stool, you are cute!

With gorgeous water views I guess it is hard to remember that the inside views count as well. I admit, I've never designed a yacht, but I'd like to, so call me Donald Trump.

We hope you all are staying dry and safe. The Scouts' prayers go out to all of you who were affected by the tornados down south.
