Hello, my name is Michaela, I’m the owner here at Your Vintage Affair. I never thought I would get married or have children and then ten years ago a man walked into my life and changed everything. I met & married the man of my dreams, my prince charming (probably the only man on earth who will put up with me honestly). We immediately embarked on the rollercoaster of life & quickly realized that we had been blessed with true love. We now have two beautiful young children and one magnificent older adopted child that we adore. We live such a full life & couldn’t be more blessed. I thank God, every day for allowing me to live my dreams.
For as long as I can remember I’ve had an interest and appreciation for all things old! I’ve always enjoyed hearing stories of where things came from, their heritage and how they came to be crossing paths with me. Here at Your Vintage Affair we appreciate things with a past, and are constantly adding to that inventory. We value items that are well traveled & enjoy preserving their character and telling their individual story.
I come from a family rich in English heritage; in fact, I am the first generation of U.S. citizens on my Mother’s side. We have been very lucky to have inherited some beautiful pieces most of which we share with our clients here at Your Vintage Affair. I was extremely lucky to fall in love with a man who also appreciates vintage and happens to come from a collector himself. Soon after we bought our first home my Mother In Law started giving us vintage pieces that she thought would complement our other home decor. What we didn’t know at the time was that she had given us just enough inventory to start a small business and as fate would have it a few months later a friend of mine asked if she could use some of our pieces for decorating & staging at her wedding. The outcome was that of a dream! Compliments were pouring in like we couldn’t believe. After a few months of lending our pieces to other friends and family & assisting in the events we decided to try it out as a business. We had nothing to lose really & what happened was surreal! The business immediately took on a life of its own and it has since bloomed into a full-service event styling & rental company.
We are so excited and grateful to be living this dream. This business truly is my passion and it shows in the quality of service given to all our clients.
