Locally Trending is a monthly feature that highlights the high quality home products available at locally owned stores in the FM area. This month, we’re focusing on all things whimsical, and what better place to find whimsy than in a vintage store. Vintage stores are full of treasures for all ages to enjoy; everything from old toys that remind you of being a kid to finding that perfect centerpiece for your table. With a little bit of hunting and gathering, you can spot the perfect piece to bring home.

For our tabletops, we were on the hunt for funky, retro, floral pieces. Nothing says spring (and dare we say summer?) is in the air more than these Midcentury Inarco China pieces, which you can find at Revolver in Downtown Fargo. Here, we’ve featured a green apple and white daisy pitcher along with a complete yellow, orange and blue coffee set.

Also at Revolver are these 1950s Fred Roberts mugs, perfect for sipping coffee during a warm and sunny Saturday morning brunch with family and friends.

As you can probably tell, I have a soft spot for vintage glassware, especially pieces that were made by hand. These hand-blown vases, also found at Now and Then Shoppe, are bright and colorful and look great mixed and matched.

Accent Furniture

We also noticed a great piece at Now and Then Shoppe, which is located right off of 10th street in Downtown Fargo. This small, white Midcentury dresser would work well in a kids room or as an accent piece underneath a gallery wall of photos.
