Sherry of Distressed
Hello! My name is Sherry Loving and I'm the owner of Distressed, a vintage furniture company. I've been refinishing furniture and merchandising vintage home goods for the past 8 years and have loved every moment of it.
My appreciation for antiques began with Letterpress. As an artist I've always been drawn to typography and architecture. I went to school for Interior Design and Business Management.
In 2005, my family moved from Portland, Oregon to Savannah, Georgia. I attribute the birth of my "picker" career to this great state. It was here that I discovered my first Ball jar, a canning jar of ALL things, and I just became obsessed! Ok, ready? Here's my dirty little secret. I rarely pass up a Ball Jar. I just can't, they become "my pretties" and I learn all about them. My oldest jar is from the 1870's. At one point I had over 300 jars in my collection, however, over time I began trading and selling them. Becoming a collector of old fruit and canning jars evolved as I discovered more things along my travels that I just couldn't pass up! Everything I collect has a story that comes with it. A little piece of history that I love sharing from one person to the next.
In 2006 my family moved to Maryland, and that is when I decided it was time to start sharing my pickings from the south, to make room for goodies in the North, as I was falling in love with discoveries from Pennsylvania and Maryland. In 2007 I began selling to friends and neighbors and eventually evolved to become Distressed. I sell in Frederick and Hagerstown, Maryland. You can also find me in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania.
Please find me upstairs to the left at any Sweet Clover Tag Sale! I'd enjoy meeting you and talking about any goodies that are catching your interest!
Cheryl of Reclaimed
Reclaimed was born when two friends decided to join forces to "reclaim" vintage furniture, textiles, barn wood, and awesome found collectibles for a refreshed, one of a kind addition to your home, office, and life.
Traditional meets industrial with some rustic mixed in from Cheryl, co-partner of RECLAIMED - upstairs at "the barn". Always interested in creating things, be it a hand carved Windsor chair, tiny glitter houses, a steam-bent Shaker box or simple fabric curtains, things for the home have always been following Cheryl's bliss. After raising three boys, shepherding numerous pets and teaching for almost a half century, RECLAIMED is the perfect creative outlet. If you see a small red pickup truck cruising the local back roads, packed to the brim with found treasures, it just might be Cheryl looking for more RECLAIMED goodies to bring to the Sweet Clover Barn.
Sheila, co-partner of RECLAIMED, needed to find her refuge and joy ... after “flying off in the wild blue” and retiring from USAF; working at a federal criminal court; when her children graduated college and needed “stuff” for their new homes. Years earlier she began school for interior design but had to drop out when duty called. RECLAIMED was her chance to return to her creative side. Whether it be dabbling in making pottery or stain glass designs, carving hand-hewn dough bowls, or collecting and creating something new from something old, Sheila can be found in her studio, driveway or office with paint in her hair and mischief in her eyes.
Look for our sign upstairs made from RECLAIMED treasures like records, rusty drill bits, rulers, and even parts of a license plate to see what we have found, painted, & repurposed for you and your loves.
More coming soon!
