About the shop:
Saving Grace Vintage grew out of my love for my small town, my family and all things vintage. I started by looking for vintage treasures at garage sales, estate sales you name it. Painting and "restyling" old pieces and bringing life to what might otherwise be forgotten or discarded was my newest passion!
Saving Grace Vintage was originally located in a cute little cabin on the back of our property in Whitley County. We quickly outgrew our little cabin. In May of 2014 we moved Saving Grace Vintage into a beautiful space in the West Central neighborhood of downtown
Fort Wayne, IN.
Our shop "Saving Grace Vintage" is located at 614 W Berry Street and
our "Downtown Studio" is located 729 Fulton Street.
Both are in the West Central neighborhood of downtown Fort Wayne, IN
Our hours are:
Wednesdays 11am to 5:30pm
Saturday 10am to 4pm
About the "Owner ~ Picker ~ Painter"
Let me introduce myself. My name is Pam Kessie. My husband Tom and I will be married 40 years this December. We have two sons and 4 grandchildren. Our oldest son, Zach and his wife Beth have three children, Riley, Katelyn and Connor and live in the area. Our youngest son, Greg and his wife Candis live in Indianapolis and recently welcomed our new granddaughter, Amelia Grace to the Kessie family. We are beyond blessed to have our children, grandchildren and my parents close to us.
My life journey has taken me down many paths. First, a stay at home mom, owner of my first business Aerobics N' Such (hey don't laugh it was the 80's) followed by time working at our local elementary school while the boys were young. I have had two careers that I loved, each lasting over 10 years. My first, was with the Longaberger Company. (And yes...I still have lots of baskets) My second, an 11 year career with Starbucks Coffee as a district manager having stores in the Fort Wayne, South Bend, Lafayette and Kokomo areas. I retired early in July of 2012 to spend more time with my grandchildren, my family and my Saving Grace business.
