Get to Know The Vintage Treasures!

Get to Know The Vintage Treasures!

Way back when Erica first opened HausWitch Home + Healing here in Salem, she envisioned it as a vintage furniture store with a little magic sprinkled in. But the space wanted more witchcraft, and didn’t feel like giving up some of the gorgeous fixtures around the shop! That’s how we ended up hanging on to things like our now-iconic gold velvet couch, by listening to the space and the little voices coming from the items themselves. 

Now 8 years later we still can’t help but stop by every thrift store and antiques mall to see what weird and wonderful things introduce themselves to us. We use vintage skeleton keys in our Dream Haus Spell Kit (which gives us a good excuse to peruse) and we just keep discovering more must-haves along the way… but we don’t have room in our own hauses for everyone, and it truly hurts our hearts to leave them behind, so ta da! The Vintage Treasure Collection was born. 

All of these treasures now available *exclusively* in the IRL store really spoke to Erica and Paige during their many intentional thrifting journeys, and How To Live With Objects by the founders of SIGHT UNSEEN illustrates exactly how we feel about them:
“Compared to what you’d buy brand-new, a vintage object has the added dimension of a past, and the contrast between the two worlds is greater now than it’s ever been. A vintage object asks you to consider questions like: How did this thing come to be? Who made it? What lives did it live before I found it? As the New York design dealer Patrick Parrish put it when we interviewed him for this book, ‘vintage has a mystery and a history’. Even if you don’t know the story behind that old ceramic sculpture, you can invent one; even if you don’t know who owned your Eames chair before you did, you can imagine all the possibilities. When vintage furnishings are visibly weathered- with what professionals would call ‘a patina’- those stories become even more evident and compelling. It lends vintage objects an intriguing aura that newly manufactured ones just don’t have, which in turn adds a palpable warmth to your home.”
