>> TREASURE HUNTER: Spending a lazy weekend perusing antique stores or visiting multiple estate sales sounds like fun, yes? But the reality is, most people don’t have the time.
That’s where Krystal Reinhard and Old Soul Décor come in. “I wanted a brick-and-mortar location so people could come in and see the wide variety of inventory I offer,” says Reinhard, who recently opened her vintage and antique home-décor showroom on West Chester’s Market Street, after years of selling online.
The Old Soul space features various vignettes arranged with eclectic combinations of period antiques and mid-century modern furniture. “I love to mix old with new,” she says. “I want people to be able to use pieces they already have, and then pick out something new that can change a room.”
Reinhard compiles her inventory from estate sales and vintage and antique dealers. Lately, she’s been adding to her “Vintage Line”—chairs, settees, trunks and other pieces re-covered in cowhide, grain sacks and linen. “You won’t find anything else like them,” she says.
Reinhard is also launching her e-commerce site this month.
