We want to thank all of you that came out to support our local business, Vintage and More on the Blvd. Our very own, Peggy Roe (aska) The Vintage Elf, gave out Beautiful Handmade Scarves, free. It was a perfect day for a parade and celebration!
Vintage and More To Host 1900’s Woodworking Demo By Bud Ellis At Holiday Open House
Stop in and meet the artist who brought us the Coolidge Park Carousel
Nov. 26, 2017 - Red Bank,TN Bud Ellis, founder of Horsin’ Around Carving School, Soddy Daisy, TN, will share some of his considerable woodworking/sculpting talent with folks who stop by Vintage and More on The Blvd.’s Holiday Open House on Saturday, Dec. 2 from 4-8 p.m.
Ellis, who brought the Coolidge Park and Chattanooga Zoo carousels to life, will use a 1900’s era, foot-powered jigsaw to make souvenirs for several lucky open house attendees. The event will take place during Red Bank’s 2017 Christmas Parade and Festival. The store is located at 3874 Dayton Blvd. in Red Bank, TN.
During the woodworking demo, Ellis and his wife Judy will entertain questions about the jigsaw, carving carousel animals and more. The demo will take place in the back of the store, which is co-owned by two Chattanooga-born sisters, Peggy Roe and Deborah Baldridge. The Ellis's are among 40 vendors who have booths filled with antiques, art, crafts, home décor, jewelry, wearables, etc., at Vintage and More.
“We are delighted to have Bud and Judy join us for the evening,” said Roe. “I think people will really enjoy seeing the jigsaw at work and learning about local history.”
There will be hot cider, cocoa and light snacks. Also, people who bring a Toys For Tots present during the open house will be eligible to win a $50 Vintage and More gift certificate.
“We want to make sure that box is full of toys when we turn it back in,” said Baldridge.
The fact that their store is bustling with activity at the end of 2017 is cause for celebration, too. Just after its grand opening earlier this year, the building was struck by a car. The store was closed for repairs for several weeks, but the two sisters made good on their vow to re-open.
Baldridge and Roe invite everyone to stop in and enjoy the cozy charm that Vintage and More offers to locals and people from all over the world who are stopping by to shop this holiday season
Thank you to everyone that has stopped by the store over the last month. Because of you and our wonderful vendors, the Grand ReOpening has been a Grand Success!
The last month has brought us many new changes from our new web site to new vendors. We have added space to the store and taken care of the damage the SUV did when it drove through the front corner of our building.
Over the last several weeks we held on to a firm belief that we would prevail and while it took many parties from construction workers to the patience of our vendors, the customers that have filled the store every day over the last month have made it all worth while.
Be sure to tell your friends, our wonderful crafts, antiques, jewelry, vintage items, furniture and more are moving fast so if you want to find that magic item, you may want to visit soon and often!
See you at Vintage & More on the Blvd!

Deborah Baldridge was at her business, Vintage and More on the Blvd, when a sport-utility vehicle crashed through the exterior brick wall of the Red Bank business on June 8.
"I was sitting in the lobby when it happened," she said. "I won't tell you what the first words out of my mouth were."
The teenage driver plowed through a corner of the wall that's three bricks thick — after he clipped a truck, grazed a car, and hit a light pole in front of the more than 100-year-old building, Baldridge said.
"The poor boy — he was having a seizure apparently," she said.
For three weeks now, the crash has closed the vintage store at 3874 Dayton Blvd., which Baldridge co-owns with her sister, Peggy Roe.
"They said the building was in danger of falling down like Cheeburger Cheeburger," said Baldridge, referring to a downtown Chattanooga restaurant that collapsed in March. "They really don't want us back in there until the building has been shored up on the inside."
