A Hermantown vintage store is now open at a new location, featuring work from more than 40 artisans and vendors.
The Vintage Hideaway Marketplace opened at 3850 Old Midway Road in Hermantown on Thursday. It will celebrate its grand opening through Saturday, with extended hours from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The grand opening will have food samples and demonstrations, plus lunch available to purchase from K & B Grilled Cheese from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.
The vintage market, owned by Tony and Nichol Hommerding, started as Tonic Salvage in 2018. After two moves and a partnership with several other vintage sellers in the area, including Golly G, Gardening Junky, Hopping Wren Furniture and The Olde Grey Barn, they are now open at a larger space that can accommodate all of their products and more.
"The biggest thing is the variety," Tony Hommerding said. "We're kind of something for everyone, from men, to women, to kids."
The Vintage Hideaway sells a wide variety of products, including antiques, local art, repurposed home furnishings, metalwork, homemade crafts, clothing and food. Hommerding is excited to now offer a boutique and a pantry with food and barbecue products.
Some sellers rent a space in the marketplace, while others consign their items to have them dispersed throughout the store.
Gina Johnson, owner of Golly G vintage store, which sells at the Vintage Hideaway, said when she and the other vintage sellers partnered last year, they immediately outgrew their location on Arrowhead Road in Proctor.
"It's crazy because we did have a move last October, but it was so obvious right from the start that this was more unique than what we had as individual shops," Johnson said.
Johnson sells vintage picks, painted and repurposed furniture and home decor, and carries local art and craftwork.
The Vintage Hideaway will be open every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Information about products and sellers, plus updates and promotions, can be found on the store's Facebook and Instagram pages.
