Camp Creek Vintage has had an online presence for years, but owners Paul and Sarah Rouse have been dreaming of a retail space for the last decade.
Paul Rouse says he knew they found their spot when he saw Revolutsia, the shipping container development at Central and Volutsia.
“I came here to get a haircut,” he says. “I was like, wow, this place is awesome.”
He says online sales are “good because you can reach a broad market, but we like to see the people and have that interaction.”
The store, which is named for a family farm in Nebraska, will sell vintage clothing and accessories, such as hats, boots, bags, shoes and jewelry from the 1920s to the 1980s.
“We get it from all over,” Rouse says. “We try to keep an open mind.”
That could mean yard sales, auctions or flea markets.
“This has been kind of a side gig for a while, and now it’ll be the main focus,” Rouse says.
The store will be on the second floor on the west side of the center.
Krista Racine with J.P. Weigand & Sons handled the deal for the space.
Rouse says Camp Creek Vintage will open in late May “if everything turns out just right.”
