What a wonderful part to my day! I went to my FAVORITE secondhand store in Winston Salem, Re*tale.  This precious local store features various used home goods, furniture, clothing, shoes, and handmade jewelry.  Just walking in inspires creativity and fashionable originality! 

I was blessed enough to meet one of the owners, Anna, who was gracious and allowed me to take pictures of her inspiring shop and items inside. When asked where she gets her ideas and items for the shop, she humbly shrugged her shoulders and stated that she loves to find ways to re-purpose anything and everything.  She loves anything original and as the description of the store suggests, "every item has a story"!

Unfortunately, I was informed that the shop is selling, but hopefully the new buyer will carry on the name and embodiment of the store! Please enjoy some pictures of one of the charms of this city, and visit as soon as you can- you may take home a little gem, like I did today (see the great nine west purple peep toe pumps)!

**thank you for shopping locally**


  1. Love that store! Just another thing I miss from Winston!

  2. Such a cute store! Thanks for the reminder to stop in again sometime soon...
