Proprietor Mary Anderson has been defining her collections for the past 15 years. While her initial focus was on vintage and antique textiles and sewing notions, her business has evolved to include a number of other specialties. This is the place for those who dream of a large store filled with "smalls." We love the miniature, egg-shaped German sewing kits (pictured here), silver handled darning eggs and the toy sewing machines of yesteryear. Other standouts include barware, game boards, old photos, graphic posters and prints, California pottery, Pyrex and more. Amid the selection of vintage and period antique clothing you'll find French lingerie, linen nightgowns and antique lace and crocheted items. Chances are when you walk through the doors you'll be greeted by the friendly and knowledgeable Kassie Carpenter. Tell her we said hello.

Larissa Richardson likes to say she's a third generation "junker." Her mom, best friend and business partner of the past three years, Jeanine Cathey, taught her about the "magic of good, old-fashioned junkin' fun" from an early age. Richardson has been salvaging and repurposing treasures for over 16 years and her shop is as beautiful a sight as the redwoods to any "junkie" traveling through Redcrest along the Avenue of the Giants. You'll find garden and home décor, furniture, primitives and handmade pieces crafted from vintage jewelry. Larissa is also the founder of the Humboldt Junkies Flea Market and Vintage Trailer Rally — sure to become an annual Humboldt event.

Land of Lovely
Sarah Bailey Land, like all brides, wanted the backdrop for her nuptials to be perfect, and she spent weeks searching for just the right shabby chic décor for the ceremony and reception. The overwhelming experience planted the seed for what became Land of Lovely Vintage Rentals. Now brides can spend time on more important details and leave the staging décor to Bailey Land. Her idea became so popular she left the family business after 19 years at Bailey Mortgage in Arcata to open a storefront in Eureka’s Henderson Center. Rental pieces are on display in the rear but there’s a good selection of both vintage and new home décor items for sale, as well. (Her husband, Travis Land, contributes the popular handmade metal letters.) Looking for a project or to revamp a piece of furniture? Sarah can supply the furniture, the chalk paint and the know-how, too!
