Hi! I'm Polly, owner of Georgie Emerson Vintage, a petite storefront located in the quaint historic village of Canal Winchester, Ohio. I am a 40-something girl who loves vintage, family, friends and decorating my home. My Mom and Dad took me yard saleing, antiquing, and auctioning all the time as a kid, and I think their love of well-worn, timeless old pieces has always resonated somewhere deep inside me.
I describe my style as feminized industrial french. It's kind of quirky in that I like to pair juxtaposing elements in my home decor.......ruffles, industrial tables, white slipcovered IKEA chairs, ironstone, fresh lavender, antique french books.
Having worked in corporate America as an HR professional in my 20's and 30's, I was able to take a step back from the hustle and bustle of the rat race when my Dad became terminally ill in 2006. I spent some quality time with him before he passed and then became the primary caregiver for my Mom who was chronically ill with a debilitating disease called Rheumatoid Arthritis. I lost my Mom earlier this year, and having spent so much time with her over the past 6 years, I was a little lost. Having an antique booth at a mall was fine and dandy, but I knew it was time to venture out on my own and become a shop owner.
We got the keys to our little space on August 15 and haven't stopped moving since! With just 484 square feet, I'm finding that it's a space that's easy to manage and fill with all the sweet shabby vintage wares that I love! I'm in a good place now, and I feel so incredibly lucky to have this opportunity right now and to have a husband who is so supportive of me following my dreams!
Thank you for stopping by my little corner of the vintage loving world! I'm glad you're here and look forward to getting to know you!
