Soon all of the Vitae ladies will have merchandise available online, but for now check out the Rok:her:roots and Acanthus item available online at Etsy. Happy Shopping!

holiday bash pics and a new consigner!

Above is a pic of some of the items from SoZealous, our newest consigner. Erin finds vintage goods and gives them an edgy twist by painting them bright colors. Stop in and check out SoZealous. It is very affordable and would make great gifts.

Thanks to everyone who came out last Saturday to our Holiday Bash! We had a great time despite the cold weather!

BUY LOCAL - It Matters

We all buy things. We want to, and we keeps the economy rolling. One of the key prospects for a healthy new economic model is the renaissance of the artisan.
You may wonder whatever happened to good old fashioned quality and American ingenuity. Well, it's right under your nose. In your community, I can guarantee there are little folks offering an alternative to the "Goliath's" of the marketplace, and they're doing it because it's what they love & what they're good at. So, if you're concerned about the economy, invest. Invest in the people doing things for the right reasons and we'll all be the richer for it.
We really need to remember to keep humanity and integrity as the cornerstone of our foundation as we rebuild our economy and our country from the inside out.
Live where you live and support the independent spirit of entrepreneurship.


Melissa Speridon has been outfitting the Midwest's most fashionable for the last 5 years, offering a fun alternative to off the rack clothing and accessories.
All her pieces are conceived and constructed by hand, and bhthe result is an irresistable collection that is at once assertive and grounded.
It's no secret that she's a fan of the 60's and 70's and prefers to walk on the wild side of the color wheel. The Pink Revolver label exhibits the skill and vision of a true stylist, and we're glad to have Melissa here at Vitae.
