Spring Trends

A change in seasons calls for a change in wardrobe!

Our vendor Jessica Weikert of Revolt Style Studio picked out 4 great trends for the upcoming sunny weather to inspire you, with shots from Alabama photog Janna Park.


Trend One: Mix it Up!

The weather is getting more playful, & so should your wardrobe. When wearing vintage, don't feel locked into any certain decade (you don't want it to look like you're wearing a costume)! Just because this top is from the 70s & the shorts are from the 90s, doesn't mean they don't pair well for this spring-tastic look.


Trend Two: Color Pop!

The sun is out - so dress like it! The spring sun brings so much light and warmth with it. Walk outside to join the sun in the boldest colors you can find & announce that you (along with spring) have arrived! P.S. Don't forget to wear your new sunnies.

 


Trend Three: Florals!

Florals for spring, how revolutionary! But they never go out of style. Let the budding blooms outside inspire your wardrobe. To add some flavor to the traditional, this dress buttons all the way up the side. Pair this look with a denim jacket for those chilly spring nights. 

 


Trend Four: Black!

Don't call us crazy, but we think black is a year-round trend & is totally perfect for spring. It's so unexpected! Show off your DGAF attitude by paring your favorite LBD with a sheer button-down & some Doc Martens.

DIY Infinity Scarf - GUSA by Victoria

DIY INFINITY SCARF . They are calling for a brutal winter this year and you ,my friend, need not break the bank looking for that special scarf to keep you warm. The beauty in crafting your own Infinity scarf is that you get to wear a unique item,that cost you under $25. Yes, it is THAT simple.

Walk with me in this posting and find out what you could do in under an hour. A quick trip to your local Joann’s Fabric store and you get to pick up the material of your choice.I picked a soft light green,polka dotted fleece fabric.

Here’s what you will need:

  1. 45’ x 34’ Fleece fabric
  2. Tape Measure Scissors
  3. Pins
  4. Thread
  5. Sewing machine

Divide the width of your fabric by 2 and cut along the center so that you end up with two separate pieces of fabric.

 

With right sides facing,pin the two 17 inches wide fleece pieces and stitch 5/8 off the edge of an inch from the, top to bottom.

Press the seam open and then pin the right side of the fabric lengthwise. Again,pin along the entire length of the fabric 5/8’ of an inch from the edge and stitch from top to bottom. Pull what is now a tubal looking scarf, through one of the openings so that the right side is now outside.

You now have a long tubal item with openings on both ends. Pin the right sides facing each other and stitch 5/8’ of an inch from the edge along the width ,as far as you can go. Slip stitch to the last section that can’t be closed out by the sewing machine,as seen in the picture below.

Just like that and in under an hour you have yourself a one-of-a-kind infinity scarf to weather any cold snap this winter.

 

How to wear it ? In any way it helps you compliment your look for the day. Here is one way to do it.

 

If sewing or DIY projects are not your cup of tea,we got you covered.Visit Redeux and choose from the variety of products available for your shopping convenience.

PYREX TURNS ONE-HUNDRED

https://www.dribbble.com

https://www.dribbble.com

Redeux is holding a 100th birthday celebration for Pyrex on Saturday November 14th from 11 am to 5 pm.

Whether you are a budding collector or a long sufferer of Pyrexia, you will enjoy a day filled with raffles, food, guest Pyrex dealers, and rare Pyrex on display.


In the past 100 years Pyrex has gone from utilitarian kitchenware to desirable vintage collectible.  For new or seasoned collectors, there is a wide array available to form the basis of your collection.  My advice is to collect what you like, what you will use, and what makes you happy.  You can focus on a particular pattern to rebuild the kitchen of your youth, work on obtaining a complete set of space savers or hoard all of it!  The sky is the limit when it comes to Pyrex collecting.


Here is a quick primer to what I call the big three of Pyrex:

 

Early Clear Pyrex

·        Widely produced from 1915 until the 1940s/1950s

·        Pieces from the 1910s to 1930s are often engraved

·        Familiar pieces include pie plates, loaf pans, custard dishes, and casserole dishes

Flameware

·        Durable glassware designed to be used on the stovetop

·        Produced from 1936 until 1979

·        Early pieces have a blueish hue, wood handles were used during WWII

·        Includes coffee percolators, tea pots, double boilers, sauce pans, and skillets

 

Opal Pyrex

·        Most iconic (and popular) patterned opal ovenware

·        Produced from the 1940s until 1980s

·        Standard patterns include the iconic Primary, Spring Blossom, Friendship, Butterprint, and Butterfly Gold (plus many more)

·        Promotional patterns, more unique patterns

·        Mixing bowls, casseroles, bakeware, refrigerator ware

And then there are measuring cups, mugs, and so much more…

The web has exploded with Pyrex resources in the past few years, here are a few of my favorites

DIY Yarn Wall Hanging

Obviously around here we love DIY projects, and this one is about as adorable, easy and cheap as they come! It's also perfectly customizable and no two wall hangings look the same. You might already have all of the items needed, but if not a quick trip to the craft store and $10 should do it!

Supplies Needed:

Scissors

Wide-tooth comb

Dowel rod (We used a 1/8" rod)

Yarn in colors of your choice

Step 1:

To get started we cut a few pieces of each yarn, about 20 of each color. You'll need to trim some of the pieces at the end, so don't worry if they aren't all exactly the same length.

Step 2:

Next you'll grab your dowel rod, and the color of yarn you want your wall hanging to start with. Really any pattern or sequence of colors will look awesome, so just have fun with it! Fold your yarn in half, and place the looped end behind your dowel rod. Then just grab the rest of the yarn hanging down, pull it through the loop and pull until tight. Make sure to leave about an inch of the rod clear on both sides. 

Step 3:

Now you'll just continue making the same type of knot, alternating the yarn for your desired pattern. Make sure to keep the knots close together to cover up the dowel rod. Stop once your knots are about an inch away from the end of the rod. 

Step 4:

To make the hanger, just simply cut a piece of your yarn of choice, and tie a knot on each end. 

Step 5:

This step is easiest if you place the wall hanging on the wall, and let the yarn hang down. Just simply comb through the yarn to make things a little neater, and prepare for trimming the ends. 

Step 6:

Lastly, just trim the ends as you desire! I decided to trim the ends straight across, but something asymmetrical and a little messy would be awesome. Wah-lah! You now have a beautiful wall hanging that probably only took a few minutes.

DIY BRAIDED HEADBAND

If you're like us, you will most likely have every supply for this tutorial lying around to make your very own braided headband. (A hair tie might be the hardest one to find.) This project has been floating around pinterest & we thought we'd give it a go!

Now it's your turn:

SUPPLIES NEEDED:

Fabric

Elastic ponytail holder

Glue (hot glue or fabric glue will do)

Measuring tape


    SOURCE: HAPPY TOGETHER

    SOURCE: HAPPY TOGETHER

1. You want to cut at least 3 strips that are double the length of your head measurement and about 1″ wide. You can make the width larger or smaller depending on what you want. I made the ones on mine a little bigger so it would be thicker. If you don’t have super long pieces of fabric, you can tie them together (or sew them together).
2. Place all three strips together and loop through an elastic. Leave enough to knot the fabric two times. There will be some extra fabric on the end, but we will take care of that later.
3. Start to braid as close as possible to the knot. Make it loose or tight, however you like. I prefered mine on the tighter side. Don’t worry if you tied any pieces together and they are sticking out at this point. Some might get braided in though.
4. Braid until the braid and the length of the elastic ponytail holder is equal to the head measurement you took earlier. My elastics weren’t too stretchy, so this worked perfectly. If yours has a lot of stretch, test it on your head and see if you want the braid shorter. 
5. There will be enough fabric on the end to loop through the elastic and knot two times on that end. Trim any pieces sticking out.
6. Use glue to help secure knots in place. Make sure it is dry before putting on head. *Instead of knotting fabric on, you can simple fold the fabrics over the elastics and sew them there.

This project was super easy & really fun to make. Now it's your turn...

MERCHANT SPOTLIGHT: THE BEE.

Meet Averie Clark.

She is the Queen Bee of Creative Repurpose, the founder of The Bee and the creative, industrious force behind the shop; readily admitting it is not a sole effort.

p148649242-3.jpg
It couldn’t happen without the support and talent of many helpers in many ways, including an amazing and evolving collective of busy bees including Janel Fox, Liza Naylor, Chrissy Kroft, Gina Sullivan, Karen Wishart, and mother/daughter team Andrea Nestlerode and Betsy Beakler of Sleepy Owl Fiber Arts. And we’re always looking to add more bees to the hive!

Bees are both collectors and collective. They work in concert with one another to take what they bring individually and make a value-added product, working for the common good. (It’s also kind of a take on the quilting/sewing bees of days gone by.) This is how her shop name came about.

Collective Courage, LLC DBA The Bee, began with a desire to enliven traditional home arts: like sewing, quilting, knitting, weaving, and such (before we as a society lose these skills). They encourage the reuse of items that might otherwise end up in a landfill, and at the same time, bring people together to learn and create, while building community together. Having an outlet to sell the goods made by their collective provides personal and economic empowerment for our producers and a great Buy Local option for shoppers. Making the decision to BEE a vendor of a vintage and handmade marketplace like Redeux was easy.

Their pieces are one of a kind, each revealing a story born of the various components that go together in the creation of the item. Their quilts and pillows, table runners and rag rugs, wardrobe accessories and refashioned clothing contains as much recycled material as possible. Averie is really looking forward to some of the personal accessories and clothing items they will soon be showcasing in the store. 

My creative engine is fueled by figuring out what to do with all the leftover bits. There is both challenge and freedom in creating items with components that are getting their second or third (or more) chance.

Redeux excites her for many reasons. "The adaptive reuse of the space, the location in a neighborhood bursting with creative energy, the welcoming feel of the store, and all the cool vendors procuring really cool stuff, just to name a few. It’s always so much fun to come in to the store and see what’s new. I’m excited, too, to see Redeux grow as a gathering place."

Averie both lives & works in York City. She loves being able to see first hand people working together to make it even better. It’s rich with history, diversity, and potential and she really enjoys be a part of that.

You can expect to see vintage fabrics and clothing re-purposed into something else that is truly unique in The Bee's booth.

Come meet Averie & Gina for a special in-store event at Redeux to reveal a fresh new batch of little girl dresses by The Bee for Spring this Friday night.

MERCHANT SPOTLIGHT: AMERICAN DAYDREAM

Meet the duo behind American Daydream:

gregandmaria

Greg & Maria Koller are the owners & pickers of American Daydream, one of Redeux's founding vendors. Their shop name is a fun spin on the "American Dream" and has come to be their favorite slogan! 

We are very patriotic and Greg spent a lot of time as a child daydreaming about having a store one day.

Their shared passion of searching for antiques brought their eclectic shop to life.

"We don't go on "normal" dates when we have date day... we go looking for new items for our collection and to bring to Redeux. This has become a passion that we have found together through the past ten years and it is our favorite hobby.  Both of our grandparents were into collecting and antiques so we have inherited the love of the classics and we are thrilled to carry on the mutual family interest. We know our grandparents would be so proud of what we are accomplishing in life. We see the value of items from the past when they were made to last. "

Their favorite items to collect are: soda bottles!

 "We have fun trying to find new bottles we do not have in our private collection.  We bring duplicates to Redeux to share with other lovers of printed soda bottles." Maria, also added she loves to collect: "Greg's artwork."

She fell in love with his creative mind and loves that their home is a revolving art gallery. Redeux has become a great place for Greg to showcase his art as well as their passion for antiques. They get their inspiration from each other and are continually motivated to create new things and to be active in their community.

For the Greg & Maria, York is home.  

Being part of this downtown community is a fun, new experience for us and it is great to be a part of the “redeuxing” of the city. It is great seeing the younger population taking charge and invigorating the city. We grew up coming downtown and from the past til now it has become so vibrant and full of life. York is in the top 5 cities of growing 25-thirty somethings. We believe it is becoming a model for other cities to follow. Kevin Schreiber and the young legislative core of York are inspiring. They are bringing change to the city and state through their leadership! It is becoming, once again, a great place for new ventures to thrive!

American Daydream is always on the lookout for new/old soda bottles, but Maria's new favorite thing to find is vintage medical items.  They have a love for vintage 20's and 30's type.

Be sure to check out their collective booth at Redeux

& find something eclectic to add to your space.

Merchant spotlight: Lionfeather Studio

Lionfeather Studio, one of Redeux's newest vendors, is comprised of Angie (buyer, painter, crafter, introvert); Jeff (engineering and customer engagement); and Machu and Picchu (the cats who personally inspect every piece before it is moved to the shop).

Angie's mother's maiden name was Lowe, which translates from German to English as "lion." Feathers have always been a sign of good luck and well-being to Angie, so she combined the two to form Lionfeather Studio.

Angie would often see items in thrift stores or at flea markets and could see their potential: realizing they only needed a little sprucing up or paint to be loved again. She would often bring them home even though she had no space for them. After being told by several antique business friends that she should have her own shop, she decided to take the leap of faith and give it a try.

That was in 2010 and our first space was in the Hampden neighborhood of Baltimore City. I was hooked. Regrettably, that shop was sold and would no longer be an antique mall so we sought out a new location add settled in quickly at Grey Beards Antiques and Collectibles in Jacobus. And from there we met Alex and discovered Redeux.

Angie has a decided weakness for interesting lamps and lighting fixtures, the more over-the-top the better. She especially favors fiberglass lampshades due to the wonderful light their translucency spreads through a room. 

The atmosphere inside Redeux is clearly charged with creative energy yet has a distinct coziness. It is very engaging to walk through but feels so comfortable and relaxed. It is simply easy to be in.

While disappointed to leave their Baltimore location and the fellow merchants who had become friends, Angie and Jeff felt immediately welcomed with warmth and generosity of spirit by everyone at Grey Beards.

The same held true as we met and talked with Alex and the members of Redeux. The customers who we have been lucky to meet and talk to, have all been gracious and very enthusiastic about our items and us. We feel very at home in York.

Angie subscribes to more than 15 shelter magazines and is always on the look out for ideas and color trends when she travels. She is always seeking pieces that make her smile or bring her a rush of emotion.

The best things transport me to a place or a time that seems happy or comfortable to me. Overall we strive to find things that will carry those emotions with them into someone else’s home. A super cozy reading chair, a flower-power pillow, a quirky lamp to brighten a living room or bedroom or a Mason jar they’ll make into something really unique for their space. It’s about comfort and joy for us - if it makes me smile, I buy it.

Oh and owls. Angie loves owls.

Come see what you've been missing at Redeux and get introduced to Lionfeather Studio.

DIY Fall Wreath

Hello, fall. We're feeling crafty over here at Redeux and wanted to share an easy, fun DIY autumn craft with our fellow Redeuxers. 

Ben's Burlap Fall Wreath

What you'll need:

  • 1 yard of burlap (color's up to you!)
  • 1/2 yard of decorative fabric of your choice
  • Hot glue gun + glue
  • 18 inch straw wreath (you can even keep the plastic on!)
  • Decorative button for the flower center

Wrap City

Start by covering a straw wreath with burlap strips, approximately three inches wide. Pull the strips tight around the wreath and secure with hot glue. 

Flower Power

Use your decorative fabric to make an easy gathered flower. Consider this your yo-yo flower hack: just fold a three-inch strip of fabric in half and then pinch it together in folds. Secure in the middle with hot glue. Finish off with a little circle of burlap in the center and top with your button.

(Ben even added a second flower because they're so darn cute.)

Hang Time

Use the leftover decorative fabric strip to hang the wreath by tying the fabric in a bow around your hook or nail.

Easy peasy, cute fall wreathy.

Merchant spotlight: Found Wanderer

Found Wanderer is a handmade jewelry business that focuses on creating blissful jewels geared toward the wandering, bohemian goddess. Owner Kacey Royer loves to use “found” objects in her creations, such as crystals, stones, vintage and old beads, as well as any other object which embraces a natural sense of beauty.

I believe that even if you are unsure about something in your life, it does not mean you are lost. My business name emphasizes this concept by focusing on women who are empowering and successful because they have wandered throughout their life, searching for the missing pieces to their so-called puzzle, not being fearful of the unknown.

Kacey started out by creating simple bracelets and customized orders that she would sell to locals here in York.  She would create something, such as a macramé bracelet for instance, post it to Instagram, and see who commented on it. To her surprise, a bunch of girls were interested and so she began to create more and more, looking to see what types of things were relatively simple to make so she could create customized pieces to give to her customers as fast as possible. 

Funny enough, I used to personally deliver my jewels to my customer’s houses as well as meet them at random locations such as parks and gas stations. I like to keep it simple and easy going, so meeting up with my customers is something I thoroughly enjoyed doing. I then decided to open up an online shop with pieces that were a little more complex. This is when I found my love for crystals. I incorporate crystals, mainly druzy crystals, into almost all of my pieces. I love adding a touch of shine to something so natural and beautiful. My commitment and dedication has led me into many different directions. I have sold in several different boutiques, including Redeux, as well as having the opportunity to send my jewelry to NYC to be in a photo shoot for Elle Magazine, in hopes of being featured in an editorial.

Kacey incorporates crystals into almost all of her pieces. Her favorite type of crystal is called a "druzy" crystal, which actually has tons of smaller, sparkly crystals encrusting the top of it.

I am obsessed with my druzy necklaces; colors ranging from peach, coral, brown, blue, pink, purple, etc.

I always try to focus on what vibe I want to portray. I usually display my jewels in a sense that grab people in, as well as make them focus on the details of the intricate pieces I have. I am always looking to make people happy as well as make them see what I see—natural beauty at its finest.

When not working on handmade jewels, Kacey works as a stylist at Free People: an American bohemian apparel and lifestyle retail company that sells women’s clothing, accessories, etc. 

I have always been obsessed with the free-spirited lifestyle, which is why I love working at Free People so much. Free People has their very own, nationally known blog called the Bldg 25 Blog. This blog has everything from clothing , jewelry, recipes, DIY crafts; the works. I find a ton of my inspiration from this blog. I highly suggest you check it out!

Kacey loves hosting her shop at Redeux and loves that it is a place for artists to come together and share their passions.

There are so many unique personalities and styles under one roof, but we all come together to share something we love.

Kacey also loves being able to head downtown and see all the different types of people that live in this area. 

Whether it be stopping in at Central Market, heading to a coffee shop, or checking out sweet shops such as Redeux, I really love being able to express my style and have others look at it. I am glad that more and more shops are downtown York. I think people are realizing that there is a lot to do downtown.

I hope you take the time to check out all the amazing artists Redeux as well as in downtown York. You will love the atmosphere once you walk into the shop without a doubt. I am so happy Alex “Found” my business, and that I have “Found” my way; creating and selling jewels for all you lovely boho goddesses.

Stop by Redeux at 113 S. Duke Street and check out Found Wanderer and Kacey's work.

If you see anything with crystals, flowers, and portrays a sweet sensation, its probably me ;)






Merchant spotlight: Sew Down Goods

Sew Down is the collaborative project of twin sisters Jessalyn Bernhofer and Sarah Pottle to promote sustainable, creative design of functional objects. All of the products in the sisters’ shop are meant to showcase the beauty and unpredictability of our environment.

No sibling rivalry here: both Jessalyn and Sarah sew and upholster, though they organically fell into their specific roles within the collaboration. Sarah is the weaver and Jessalyn is the dyer.

“It’s really great working both together and apart,” says Jessalyn. “We are constantly learning from each other. It makes the collaboration really special.”

“Sew Down” is a nod to both sewing/textiles, as well as “sow,” as in sowing seeds.Because Jessalyn and Sarah forage or grow many of their own botanicals used in the dyeing process, they wanted their shop name to be connected to that natural environment. Jessalyn and Sarah are “so down” for even the most challenging process, enjoying all of the steps, not just the end result.

Though the twins are both full-time English teachers, they were searching for a tangible creative outlet. Working with their hands seems to be in their genes, from a grandfather who was a carpenter and furniture-making hobbyist to a father who owned a concrete company and built houses. Even their respective partners are in the trades.

About three years ago when Jessalyn ripped apart her first chair, she and Sarah had their Eureka! moment.

Sarah and I decided that this is where our creative element could be found: upholstery! I remember, almost every person we told about our new venture was like, ‘so, you want to reupholster furniture… I don’t get it.’ It did sound out-of-the-blue. But it was so fun having a product that we could use after all of our hard work, and it felt good knowing that we saved another chair from a landfill.

Jessalyn and Sarah realized that the sustainable measures they take in their personal lives should also be adopted into their company policy. They began to make their own textiles, trying their best to use locally sourced or made-in-the-USA undyed, organic fabrics that they could then hand-dye with foraged or grown botanicals.

We are just as much in love with the process of making any of our items as we are with the end result. Each piece has its own unique story to tell.

Jessalyn and Sarah’s inspiration comes from natural elements. Some of their favorite dyes have been red cabbage, which makes a pretty, steely light blue, and osage orange heartwood, a really awesome mustard yellow color.  

If you go outside and look at all of the colors—I mean REALLY look—you’ll see shades you’ve never noticed before. The coolest part is that all of the colors in nature complement each other!

Sew Down has also found inspiration in people like Maura Ambrose from Folk Fibers in Austin and Leland Duck from Revive Designs in Portland.

Of all the pieces Sew Down currently has in Redeux, Jessalyn counts two among her favorites: the logwood bench and the indigo chair.

The logwood bench was dyed a deep purple with bark of a logwood tree. We rebuilt the frame, reused some mid-century modern legs and button-tufted the top. On the other hand, the indigo chair is SO COMFY. We hand-dyed each panel in a different indigo bath and used a marbling effect to create dimension. We button-tufted the inside back, and also embroidered a subtle design on the back of the chair. We also sanded the frame to create a more natural look.

All of the fabric used in these projects is organic—grown and woven in the USA. In addition to the furniture, I also think all of Sarah’s weavings are stellar. She’s modest, though.

Jessalyn thinks a store like Reduex is exactly what York needs.

Redeux kind of functions as an incubator for small businesses who don’t necessarily have the inventory or the start-up funds to open their own brick-and-mortar. It’s also a way to connect people; I’m already so inspired by the other unique vendors at Redeux!

For Sew Down, Jessalyn and Sarah are always looking for old chairs and furniture that have good bones but damaged upholstery. They’d also love to partner with local farms as a source for wool and dye matter.  

Jessalyn and Sarah believe in the slow process over the quick and cheap. To learn more about that process, visit their website. You can also Like them on Facebook and follow them on Instagram: @sewdown.
