FOUNDER + CREATIVE DIRECTOR
Patina-stalker, mother to Hank and sweet girl June, gardening maven, pug-lover, native Hoosier, and wanna-be power weight lifter. She loves a good glass of Merlot or sour beer and just can’t say no to anything Italian. After a career as a terrorism analyst, she decided hoarding beautiful, old things was much more enticing and created Something Vintage. Her wonderful husband Zach manages to tolerate the crazy all the while crafting amazing custom pieces for clients. Dawn’s love for vintage furniture stems from the meticulous details that are so elusive today – hand-tufted velvet, carved wood trim, intricate floral-patterned plates – these are the things that bring her joy. Her work has been featured in Style Me Pretty, Grey Likes Weddings, Washingtonian and more. She is passionate about breathing life back into forgotten pieces and celebrating the beautiful details that are true rarities in our modern age.

With a background in event planning and marketing, Ashley helps with anything and everything related to marketing (with an emphasis on the everything).
