Let's visit Rhymes with Orange

What a cute name for a Vintage Store, we love it! We wanted to share with you, some pics from one of our favorite sites.  Erin and Stef own a vintage boutique in Winnipeg,Canada called 'Rhymes With Orange' and they have a blog that we follow called  'Oh So Lovely Vintage'. Their store reminds us of OCT, full of vintage and retro goods that we all love. What a fun place--we hope you like it too, and if you are inspired, visit us at OCT, we stock many of the same vintage items--so come see us, right here in the 'Ville!

This Vintage Store is so popular that MTV made a video about the girls and a contest they are having.
Be sure and check it out here here.
And don't forget to visit their blog often for vintage inspiration and retro fun!

Downtown--the place to be!

We are so proud to be a part of downtown Milledgeville--- There are so many great things in the works, it just keeps getting better and better. We thought we'd share some of the wonderful improvements-- that are coming soon. We know you will be as excited about it as we are. Come on downtown and check it out for yourself and while you are down, be sure and stop by OCT and browse through our store full of unique vintage goods. Vintage in the 'Ville--it doesn't get any better!

The Historic Elks Building is getting a much needed restoration and will be used for City Offices

Our wonderful Main Street Sponsored Tuesday Farmers Market is getting a permanent home!

How to enlarge your B&W photos

Bet you noticed those great historical photos on display in the windows in downtown Milledgeville, we love it and thought we would let you in on the secret on how they were done. You would assume that blowing up photos that large would be quite costly--think again.  By using "blueprint" copies you can achieve this project very economically.  Inspired by several blogs who shared this technique--the Main Street folks made these giant blueprint copies to decorate the windows of this empty store front and share these historic photos of downtown Milledgeville with all of us. Staples in Macon is the closest place we have found to get this done but the price will make the drive well worth it.  Try it for yourself and send us some photos when you do and we'll share them here--how fun!
