Weekend salvage market sets up shop in vintage store near downtown

June 21, 2024

It's been almost a year since Christi Petersen opened Seasoned Style at 824 W. 10th St., And Things are going well, she said.

Seasoned Style is a vintage home decor store featuring one-of-a-kind treasures, as Petersen calls his store's one-of-a-kind items.

“What's great right now is that the trend is 'granny/cottage core,'” Petersen said. A lot of this piece of furniture is over 100 years old and East still in good working order.

Seasoned Style is open for business this weekend. Petersen introduces a new selection and aesthetic every third weekend of the month.

“As I said, vintage is in and is often made with higher quality materials while still being environmentally sustainable,” Petersen said.

The Reclaimed Market is open today from noon to 5 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., and Sunday from noon to 3 p.m. The last day of the market will include permanent jewelry seller Sunday Spark.

Opening the store only once a month has been a good model for Petersen, she said. She owns another store in Dell Rapids with two other partners.

“This store in Sioux Falls is my personal business,” Petersen said. “I also need time in between to work on my pieces; I collect the furniture myself.

Petersen hand sources about 95 percent of the decor and furniture from flea markets, yard sales, thrift stores and auctions. She also does the renovation itself. She locates furniture, paints it, stains it and repairs it as needed.

“That first year of opening was pretty good,” Petersen said. “I always hope to expand my customer base and make Sioux Falls more aware of my unique store.”

Petersen has a different theme each month and often a different color. This month Seasoned Style has lots of reclaimed and rustic black items. Last month it was on the theme of “summer lake”.

“The Junk Fest (at the Nest) was two weeks ago, so this month I have a lot of fun, rustic treasures,” Petersen said.

She pointed out a leggy vintage dresser and a newly painted secretary desk. which highlights the rustic theme.

“Every month I make the place look different, so it’s like a new shopping experience,” Petersen said. “I want it to be like a shopping event where you bring a group of friends and come shopping for the day.
