- About Sally
With over 30 years of vintage restoration experience, we have always had a genuine fondness and appreciation for mid-century American craftsmanship, where form met function and was the envy of the world.
For our family, restoration is a way of life. Our restoration roots go back to the 1930’s, where great uncles were building and restoring everything from cliff-side cabins to lobster boats in Boothbay Harbor, Maine. In 1953, my grandmother purchased the 150 year old home that sat on Thoreau Farm, Henry David Thoreau's birthplace in Concord, Massachusetts. She would spend the next decade lovingly restoring it to vintage glory, authoring and publishing a book on interior decorating along the way. As kids, we would gather in her fifteen by thirty farm house style kitchen while she made blackberry and raspberry pies (freshly picked from the brambles bordering her yard) in her vintage Roper stove. Meals were served on a 10' long dining room table she made herself from scrap barn boards from the original barn on the rear acreage. It is likely that these memories helped forge my appreciation for keeping it simple, things that work, and doing a job right the first time.
As the years have passed, my husband and I have designed and installed dozens of kitchens, many of which have included vintage appliances. We quickly discovered that the star attraction was often our beautifully restored vintage stove. About a dozen years ago, we discovered how many folks across North America shared our appreciation for vintage stoves, thus, the 'Grapevine' was born.
Quality is everything at the Grapevine; we will not rush our craftsmen, nor will we ever ask you to settle for anything but our best. We want our customers, our friends to receive the highest quality of used and restored parts so they can enjoy their vintage beauty for another 60-plus years. Thank you for dropping by the Grapevine.
