LILY LAKE – About 13 years since owning a small shop in the Tri-Cities, real estate agent Tina Mastrangelo is returning to retail, this time with a store in western Kane County.
Located near the intersection of Route 64 and Route 47 on Wooley Road, Harvest Lane Vintage is a resale and consignment shop that offers such items as home decor, vintage clothing and jewelry. Mastrangelo described the collection as a mix of vintage or vintage-inspired goods that constantly changes.
“It’s a new shop every time,” she said.
Harvest Lane Vintage is celebrating its grand opening from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. today and Saturday. Refreshments will be served and door prizes will be awarded, Mastrangelo said.
Mastrangelo, who primarily works as a real estate agent, said she had a small shop on Geneva’s Third Street more than a decade ago.
“It has always remained a passion,” she said.
Mastrangelo began selling items on Etsy, an online marketplace, and that morphed into a desire to have a brick-and-mortar presence, she said.
She builds her inventory through estate sales, garage sales and private sales from people wanting or needing to downsize, she said. Stressing she isn’t an appraiser, Mastrangelo said people can reach her about selling items at 815-739-1888.
“We do feature some local artisans as well for items they have handcrafted,” she said.
Harvest Lane Vintage will have sales once a month in addition to occasional pop-up and trunk sales, Mastrangelo said. The dates will be established three months in advance, she said, directing people to www.facebook.com/HarvestLaneVintage to stay updated.
