This week we’re talking to Devanda! She is 1/2 of the best friend duo behind Stars and Splendid space #6, You’ve Been Pinked. I must say their booth looks like a dreamy valentine right now! So many sweet things to bring back to your nest. Devanda and Pam have a lot of fun finding new treasures to bring to the booth. This is their first romp of selling vintage and they’ve been with us for almost two years now (time flies!!). Maybe you will find that special something you have been looking for–they bring in new items on a weekly basis.
What would you say your specialty is?
Furniture from the 20s and 30s. We stock our booth with things that we would have in our own homes. Romantic homes style things.
How did you get into vintage?
We have always loved it and have been collecting forever
Do you collect some specific things for your own home?
Toleware and anything pink (of course!). So many different interests. Hard to list them all!
What is your favorite era?
Pam’s is the 30s—50s and mine is… probably about the same!
What is your dream vintage score?
Oh there are so many…
What is the vintage score that got away?
Can’t really think of any right now. We don’t really worry about the ones that got away—just always on the hunt for more treasures.
Any vintage shopping tips?
Just have to keep at it and have some luck!
What is your favorite place to eat in Portland?
Sayler’s Old Country Kitchen
Do you find inspiration in any movies, TV shows, music, theater, arts, sports, etc?
Love watching old 30s and 40s movies… love the houses, furniture… all of it!
What non-vintage shops do you frequent?
Target and home goods stores.
What do you like to do when you aren’t working?
Pam loves to read and I love to decorate and read all the decorating magazines.
How do you unwind?
I unwind with my magazines.
Stop by Splendid and see You’ve Been Pinked!
