We recently had our Mid Century Modern minds blown when we finally visited the Vintage Marché Vintage Market for the first time during their July sale. Known as Tampa’s Premier destination for vintage, repurposed, and one-of-a-kind finds- we couldn’t agree more!
Since we last spoke, we bought a new house, moved across town, sold our old house, raised 4 baby squirrels full time and countless other time-consuming and emotional events occurred….
Hi! Mark and Brittany here – Welcome to our new endeavor of blogging together! A little about us – We were both born and raised in Ohio (me-Dayton ~ him-Sandusky) and we met as twenty somethings living in Columbus, OH in 2009.
