Fun, Funky & Recycled Stuff!

Welcome and thank you for visiting my shop, KB Vintage Designs! I love building my creative ideas into fun products that I hope have a great impact on those who buy them. I am continually inspired by my amazing customers to design and create unique and one of a kind items - no two products are ever the same!

I have always wanted to take some of these cool things from the past and give them new purpose and a new life for those who also appreciate and remember those bygone decades. KB Vintage Designs was born from my love of everything "old" and vintage and the belief that others would want to use or wear a piece of that history.

My journey down the creative path for repurposing items had been in the works conceptually since 2010, but in 2018, I finally made the leap of faith to turn my ideas into handcrafted products. My family and friends have provided a huge amount of support, love and business, and for that I am extremely grateful!

Cheers!

Family ~ The Inspiration behind KB Vintage Designs

My family is the true inspiration behind my business and they continue to be a constant source of love and support throughout my journey.

I grew up with 3 older sisters who I idolized and emulated. Their interest and participation in the culture of the 1950's and 1960's made a huge impression on my life.

I have always loved "old things". I remember going to both of my grandmothers' homes and playing for hours with wooden blocks that were my father's childhood toys and a metal tin of buttons that were from my mother's family's clothing. I was fascinated with the black and white family photos, the stories behind them, and the collections of knickknacks displayed. I have some of these things from their homes in my home today, and I display them with love and affection ~ memories from an era gone by, but not forgotten.

I will be forever thankful and appreciative to all of them for inspiring me to reuse, recycle and repurpose the gems from the past.

Everything old is new again!
