Shop Local – Second Hand Chic

The next stop in our local shopping expedition is Secondhand Chic. I adore this little shop.  

It was such a pleasure to chat with Kelly the owner. She explained how her shop isn’t consignment but that occasionally she will buy items if people bring them in. The majority of her items are handpicked by her at estate sales, garage sales and other places. She truly is a treasure hunter. 
This store was easy to navigate through as each section was divided by color. The prices were really great too!
Please enjoy some of the treasures I found…


If you are in Utah make sure you stop by this amazing little shop.

    I love this type of shop where you can find unique things for your home. There is a fairly new shop in our area where the owners, four friends, purchase vintage pieces and give them a modern update. I love visiting, but they charge WAY too much. I doubt they will be in business long so I have to get my fix now.

    Looks like she is super talented at arranging and selecting items! There's a shop similar to that in my town, but they focus on bigger items, like furniture.

    My ONLY critique is that the font on her sign is awful 🙂 haha…but only anal people like me would even care.

    I loved the store! So many fun things. They have some chairs I would love to have but need to wait until the basement is finished!

    Looks like so much fun! My mom and I went "thrifting" last summer and found the best vintage magazines that we have gotten so much inspiration from!

    I love the little note that says "instant relatives for the family album"…. too funny! All the little arrangements of the treasures are so thoughtful and eye-catching! The photographer did a great job! 😉
