When owner Carol Lamb announced Lamb’s Gate Antiques would be closing after 16 years, we all had a sad moment. Luckily, that moment was turned positive by Jill Rinner who decided to take over the store – and put her own touch on it – creating the now open Vintage Marketplace.
The full name: “The Life That’s Lived There Vintage Marketplace.” And if that isn’t an indicator of what you will find inside, just imagine a place that combines antiques with decor and everything you might need to find your own unique style.
The store will stay vintage, with the addition of small gifts and soaps.
“There’s a lot of things that make this a special place,” Jill said. “The name of the shop is based on one of my favorite quotes from Elsie de Wolfe, one of the first interior designers.” And that’s just the starting point.
Jill’s philosophy stems from the belief that your home is the “scrapbook of your life.” The items in her store are meant to help you make your home beautiful and unique.
Think you recognize the name? Jill and her business partner also had a shop in Williamston for 4 years called Bungalow 47.
