Shopping small is so much more than just a trend. We all love finding new small shops whether it be a local boutique or a fun online store, and our support of those small businesses goes so far beyond that purchase we made.
Shopping small allows someone to follow their dreams, gives confidence in a passion, supports the families behind the brand, and lets you share in the joy of being a part of something that means so much to people you may not even know.
One of our small shop friends in McMinnville knows just how true this is. MD Haney & Co. is a stunning brick and mortar in the wine country of Oregon that specializes in helping you make your house a home.
Matt and Darci Haney are a husband and wife team that combined their unique passions to create a retail shop and studio space. From home renovation and furniture refinishing, to interior design and decor, the Haneys are truly a home design power-couple!
The dream of using their talents came true five years ago when, with a newborn and a toddler in tow, they opened their first studio and retail space, followed by a commercial store front just over two years later!
They remodeled a 1938 home downtown to create a gorgeous space that allowed them to share goods that they love and support other small businesses, including Antique Candle Co. (previously Antique Candle Works)!
Darci found Antique Candle Co. two years ago, and ever since we have loved seeing our candles in her adorable store! While it’s hard for her to pick, Darci’s favorite scents right now are Fresh Cut Herbs and Sweet Lemon, but she also enjoys burning Momma’s Kitchen and Sweet Lemon together at home.
Her oldest daughter, Addilyn, also loves smelling her personal favorite from the shop, Sweet Lemon. MD Haney & Co. has the cutest little shopkeepers around!
Matt and Darci are always meeting new friends and helping them with creative endeavors. They have design consultations to help make the vision for your home come true, and even host creative workshops and classes for others passionate about all things home to come together and have a good time!
Small businesses like MD Haney & Co. wouldn’t exist without the support of friends like you who shop small. They are in the business of spreading the love, and their heart is truly inspiring!
Antique Candle Co. loves being a part of passionate small businesses. If you have your own retail space, we would love the opportunity to connect with you!
