Featured Vendor of the Month: Debbie Winmill (C11) of Ashland Vintage Goods

Debbie Winmill, a long-standing retailer in the Rogue Valley, of Ashland Vintage Goods (formally Roadside Relics in Talent) has moved her collections into themed booths throughout the Ashland Artisan Emporium. Looking for vintage clothing and shoes? Estate and costume jewelry? Western wear and collectibles? Vintage linens? Kitchenware? Fun trinkets? Framed artwork? Small furniture? Vintage lighting? She has something for everyone!

All booths have new inventory weekly, almost daily! Make sure you check back regularly and ask the counter for booth locations.

Debbie’s passion for vintage clothes and collectibles started as a teenager selling vintage clothes and jewelry at the Rose Bowl flea market in Pasadena, CA. Then in the early 70’s Debbie moved to Ashland and opened up her first store, Birds of a Feather, with a few like-minded ladies in downtown Ashland. After a decade Debbie continued buying and selling up and down the West Coast wholesale and retail in several of her own stores and for other vendors. You might have explored a few of her shops in the area and she thanks you for your patronage and long-time support. Moving her store to the Artisan Emporium has allowed her more time to travel and find better collectibles for you.

Don’t forget, if you have vintage items that you wish to sell or an estate sale you need help with, please contact Debbie for an appointment at (951) 951-2613.

Thank you and happy local shopping!

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.
