A note from the editor: This contest is over, but The White House Girls have been expanding their business ever since! Check their website to find their new location and check back on the second Tuesday of each month for more contests and chances to win.
These ladies have been bringing pretty vintage decor, furniture, home accents and rentals to you through their website and at events all over the Red River Valley, but now you can shop the brick and mortar pop-up shop in downtown Fargo.
The store is open December 11-13. Stop out on Friday from 5 p.m. until 9 p.m., Saturday from 10 p.m. until 6 p.m. and Sunday from noon until 4 p.m.
If you have a specific gift in mind, you can always email firstname.lastname@example.org. But I definitely recommend checking out all the vintage goodies in person. You’ll find everything from cool vintage globes and holiday decor to tabletop accents and assorted little treasures that will appeal to junkers and treasure hunters.
I have an absolute weakness for vintage linens, so I loved looking at all the pretty sheets, pillows and blankets on display. These colorful designs will look so fresh when mixed in with more modern elements. And if a cozy or romantic vibe is your thing, then bring on the pattern play — the more, the merrier!
You’ll also find furniture, toys and other vintage and antique items. The selection is always changing, so if you see something you love, snap it up, because it probably won’t be there for long.
