“This is the sort of thing we have always loved,” smiled Nancy Meyer of her newest business venture, Vintage on Vine in West Union.  “When this space was opening up a few months ago, the thought of coming in and starting a store crossed my mind, and I decided to take the leap!” 

The shop, which sits nestled in the heart of downtown West Union offers a wide variety of gifts and décor.

“We have so many things and all are made or repurposed locally,” said Meyer.  “From furniture, trunks, wall hangings, yard décor to baked goods we will be selling in the coming weeks.  It’s all unique to the area.” 

  Meyer, the daughter of Pam and Steve Rogers of Sumner, is no stranger to the ‘vintage’ world as she and her mother, Pam, have long been working on projects together.
