the third place



“The Third Place”
The Third Place is a concept of Ray Oldenburg, urban sociologist and author of The Great Good Place: Cafes, Coffee Shops, Bookstores, Bars, Hair Salons, and Other Hangouts at the Heart of a Community. The First Place is your home, and the Second Place is your office. You have assigned roles and tasks at each place, and you know nearly all the people in each. The Third Place is where you meet with people you don’t know that well, or maybe at all, and you exchange ideas, learn about other people, and, as Oldenburg sees it, enrich society and yourself.

hello, dear friend.

as it seems, i have neglected you recently. for that i am sincerely, and deeply, apologetic.

let's play a quick game of catch up, shall we?

merry christmas!
happy new year!
it's almost valentine's day!

vintage heart has had a bit of a makeover, i will get to perfecting the blog eventually (really i should be doing that right about now) but check out a fancy new logo that we have:


quite dashing, if i may say so.

this christmas i put together a little product sample for those who work tirelessly to support vintage heart with their talents and time. this made for a very vintage heart christmas indeed:


a sneak peak at what i hope to line your pantries with.

be well, pretties.
