More About Me



Hi Friends!! You all know my LOVE for Saving Grace Vintage. I talk about this vintage-inspired boutique a LOT in my blog, referring to it often as my Go-To for milk paint, chalk paint, gel stain…But today I want to tell you more about what this fabulous shop has to offer. AND there may just be a give-away involved too. 🙂 We all love free-stuff and I know you’ll love this one.

Saving Grace Vintage, located in downtown Fort Wayne on Berry Street, resides in a beautiful old house that has so much character in and of itself. Walking into the shop through the tall, vintage door with the doorknob in the middle. (You’ll see what I mean when you visit 🙂  )….


You enter the beautiful foyer with a grand staircase. In this area, you will find an array of signs to fit most any room…


Walking on into the main part of the store, you are instantly in love with all the different painting techniques used on the various restyled furniture pieces…





There are SO many unique items throughout this shop…


I want one of these so badly…..



As you move on towards the back of the store, to the left is all of the paint (so many to choose from) that I love, love, love!! It really is such an amazing quality of paint. The only negative is once you’ve used this paint, you won’t want to use anything else. It’s so easy to work with!!


But what’s a boutique without the clothes and the jewelry??…oh ya, there’s plenty of that to choose from…





This shop is lacking nothing. Including hospitality…Pam Kessie, the owner, is such a sweet, helpful, creative lady. I love picking her brain. She has helped me on so many projects. She has a way of thinking outside the box and comes up with some amazing ideas of techniques to try…


If you have a piece of furniture, you would like to repurpose, but you’re feeling intimidated with giving it a go on your own…be sure to grab a monthly schedule of the classes offered at Saving Grace’s workshop, located just a couple doors down. Another very cool space that inspires the creative juices to flow. They have everything you need there. You can either bring your own piece or practice on one of theirs.



Pam and her staff are so generous to their patrons. They truly love what they do. She has offered to give one lucky new or existing subscriber to my email list a $25 gift card to be used on anything in the store. I’m so excited about this! I know you are going to love all Saving Grace has to offer. And if you’re out of town and not close to the Fort Wayne area, that’s ok…shipping is available (however, shipping fees do apply). You can check out the Saving Grace Facebook Page featuring many of the items they have to offer.

The holidays are one of the best times to visit Saving Grace. The shop is so festive and warm and inviting. Be sure to grab a coffee or hot cocoa in the dry kitchen towards the back. Or maybe you’ll be fortunate enough to be there on a day Rise-N-Roll donuts are being offered….Yep, that happens. YUMMMMM!! I’m telling you friend, this is the best shop in town!!!


So, come on down and visit Saving Grace for their holiday sales….Holly Trolley November 26th, 10-5 and the West End Shop Hop Saturday, December 3rd, 10-4. The first 50 customers on Holly Trolley day receive a FREE gift. And don’t forget to sign up for my email subscription below to enter the drawing for the FREE $25 Saving Grace Gift Card!! You don’t want to miss out!! I’ll be drawing the name of the winner on Black Friday, November 25th.

Until next time….Happy Shopping!!!
