About Just Vintage

Just Vintage is a two person, husband and wife team, resale business based out of Auburn, Alabama, “The Lovliest Village On the Plains.”

We buy and sell junk wonderful, vintage items here in the blog shop, on Etsy as JustVintage2, and at Angel’s Antique Mall in Opelika, Alabama. We also love DIY craft projects and home decorating and, as often as possible, helping you to learn to do whatever we’re doing!

Ricky builds furniture and puts the most gorgeous finishes on his pieces! His work rivals any quality furniture store. His blog is Craft’s Wood Shop. Wanda (That’s me!) does the shopping, staging and online work.

We carry General Finishes Milk Paint and other products in the booth at Angel’s. The booth is located on the back wall close to the center of the store, right next to Angel Fire Nuts and the vending machines. When the nuts are cooking, just follow the yummy aroma and you’ll see our booth right next door.

I guess there’s not much more to say than that. We live a simple, uncomplicated life. But a busy one. There’s always something going on and occasionally, it’s blog worthy.

  1. So nice to see an “older” woman on these blogs. I am 64 and my hubby (also high school sweetheart) is 66 and we’re both retired. I love all the vintage and chippy stuff out there and think it is so cool people are recycling all the things that formerly would have ended up in the landfills. We live in N.C. and love our Southern life. Would love to hear from you but am not very computer literate so would have to email. Maybe one of these days I’ll figure out more about the computer (but probably won’t as the older I get, the less brain cells I have) Love your blog, by the way.

  2. Love your blog- and have never heard the term “Barbie bloggers” before. Way too true! Can’t wait to explore your blog.

  3. Just saw one of your pieces at Angel’s Antiques in Opelika. It is a safe green bookcase. Do you do any custom work (like that type or something similar in another color)?

  4. I found some old pictures in a house my friend bought I do not know nothing about them. They have a porcelain figure on a pillow. On the back the person bought it for 17.95 on June 22 66. U can help me out I will be very happy.

  5. Hi,

    I would love the chance to purchase some advertising space on your website justvintagehome.com. I have a few clients that I think would be a great fit for your niche.

    Please let me know if this is something you’d like to hear more about and we can take it from there.

    Thanks for your time.

  6. Hi Wanda, I am not a regular commenter on blogs, but I (very rarely) feel an overwhelming need to reach out. I just “met” you today (through Petticoat Junktion). I really wanted you to know that I am sorry for the loss of your dad. Your blog entry really touched my heart. Your Dad reminds me so much of my Dad, one of the greats! Thank you for sharing. I look forward to reading more of your posts especially to find out whether or not you decide to move. How exciting, yet bittersweet. I have moved around my entire life; I was a Navy kid, (brat maybe) and my searching for roots continental into adulthood. I have always peered over the fence, where the grass is greener, and wondered what it would be like to live in the same town, alas even the same home. So I do await to hear of your adventure.

    1. That’s so sweet of you, Paula! Thank you so much. And it’s nice to meet you!

      Yes, there’s a lot to be said for staying put. I can’t imagine your life of always having to make new friends. I was a shy kid growing up and when I think of developing new relationships, the old shyness rears its ugly head. But the flip side is the excitement of something new.
