The Vintage Menagerie in downtown Grass Valley is a treasure trove of goodies, from furniture to retro kitchen items and gifts. The shop, located at 152 South Auburn Street is open Wednesdays – Saturdays (11am-5pm) and Sundays from 11:30am-4:30pm). “The style of my shop is a mixture of vintage, retro to primitives and shabby antiques. I specialize in vintage kitchen and I carry a collection of up cycled painted furniture to crafty handmade jewelry and boutique items,” says owner Marcie. The Vintage Menagerie is a distributer of Old Town Paints (Shabby Chic Paint TM), a locally manufactured paint from Elk Grove, California. The owners, Bobby and Sasha, started selling their paint at flea markets about a year ago and have expanded to 60 brick and mortar retailers from California across the country to Alaska. The May paint special at The Vintage Menagerie is buy 2 quarts paint and receive 1/2 off Wax or Satin/Matte Finish or buy 3 one oz ( sample size) paint and receive a free one oz paint or Satin/Matte Finish free. They have 52 colors of Old Town Paints and the Outside Inn’s blog has a 3 oz sample jar to giveaway, post a comment here and I’ll draw the winner on Friday, May 16th (happy to send the prize if you don’t live locally, but I get to choose the color!).
