NESTLED IN A MICHIGAN SHOP CALLED THE FOUND COTTAGE,

Honeyhomb Market offers everything from corbels to old church photograph­s. In addition to its store, Honeyhomb also hits the road to participat­e in traveling shows such as the Vintage Market Days in Lebanon, Tennessee (March 15–17, 2019). Jordan Vanschepen, founder of this sweet vintage business, brings her love of design to the marketplac­e. Her artfully crafted exhibits attract customers like bees to honey.

Flea markets thrive on storied items, and Honeyhomb, in like fashion, carries artifacts with rich histories. “I recently picked a set of antique primitive Windsor chairs from the mid-1800s,” Jordan says. “This set of chairs had the most amazing patina; if only they could tell their story.” Jordan finds herself drawn to “white and chippy architectu­ral salvage as well as natural wood tone primitive pieces” and these are her favorite items to show. “I love selling corbels and unique windows,” she says.

At Honeyhomb, top-notch service means more than just introducin­g a buyer to charming vintage pieces. “I want my customers to leave my space feeling inspired and able to create their own beautiful spaces in their homes,” Jordan explains.

That’s also why her shop stands out. “My displays are set up like spaces that can be found inside your home,” Jordan says. “They are not just displayed as vintage items on a shelf, but carefully curated and displayed.” Thanks to these charming vignettes, customers can “visualize the items in their own homes and spaces.”

In and out of the home, optimal arrangemen­ts begin with careful ordering. “You will notice that my displays are organized by a certain color scheme,” Jordan says, “as this tends to be more visually appealing. I also display many of the same items together in a space, as this makes for a more impressive visual statement.”

“MY DISPLAYS ARE SET UP LIKE SPACES THAT CAN BE FOUND INSIDE YOUR HOME.”
