Ashland Artisan Emporium

Ashland Vintage Goods

As a long standing retailer in the Rogue Valley, Debbie Winmill’s Ashland Vintage Goods, formally Roadside Relics in Talent, has moved her collections into themed booths throughout the Emporium. Looking for vintage clothing and jewelry? Western wear and collectables? Vintage linens? Kitchenwares? Artwork and small furniture? There is something for everyone!

All booths have new inventory weekly. Make sure you check back regularly and ask the front counter for booth locations – Ashland Vintage Goods (vendor C11). Don’t miss Debbie’s online store coming in August

Debbie has been established with the Emporium almost since its conception in 2010.

Debbie says, “Vintage clothing and collectables has been a passion of mine since I was a teenager. At nineteen I was selling vintage clothes and jewelry at the Rose Bowl flea markets. In the early 70’s I moved to Southern Oregon with all the other hippies and met a group of young ladies, like myself, that had a passion for vintage clothing and collectables. Together we opened Birds of a Feather in downtown Ashland. After 10 years, I continued on my own, buying and selling up and down the west coast wholesale and retail. You might have explored a few of my shops in the Ashland area and I thank you for patronage.

After 45+ years in the business it has become harder and harder to find great vintage items here in Southern Oregon. I have decided to move my store online to allow more flexibility in my search for all these fabulous vintage goods outside of this area. My passion and the pursuit of these treasures is what keeps me going. 

You can still shop locally at the Ashland Artisan Emporium where I will regularly add new merchandise to my booths. Don’t forget if you have vintage items you wish to sell, please call me for an appointment.

Thank you for all your support and I look forward to bringing you more fabulous goods.”

Ashland Artisan Emporium

The Ashland Artisan Emporium is owned by Michelle Christian, wife and mother of 3 daughters. Her husband, Travis, is the business manager for Adroit Construction in Ashland, Oregon. The Emporium was the vision of Michael Rydbom, Michelle's father. In April of 2010, Michael asked his daughter if she would be willing to help transform the old DJ's Video space into a crafter's marketplace. Michelle had always admired her dad's entrepreneurial spirit and was eager to make him proud, so even though she already had two kids, a real estate career and one more daughter on the way, she said yes. On November 1, 2010, the store opened it's doors to a welcome reception from the community. They were voted Best New Business of 2010 only months later by the Ashland Sneak Preview. Within weeks of opening, the store was at capacity and had quickly become the "go-to" store for all things unique and affordable.
