Weekend salvage market comes to vintage shop 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 decor store with one-of-a-kind treasures, as Petersen calls the one-of-a-kind items in her store.

“Something great right now is that the trend is ‘granny core/cottage,’” Petersen said. A lot of this furniture is over 100 years old and It is 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.

“Like I said, vintage is on trend and often made with higher quality materials as well as being environmentally sustainable,” said Petersen.

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 market day will feature permanent jewelry Sunday Spark seller.

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

“This store in Sioux Falls is my solo adventure,” Petersen said. “I need time in between to work on my plays as well; I claim my furniture.”

Petersen’s hand sources about 95 percent of the decor and furniture from flea markets, garage sales, thrift stores and auctions. she she also takes care of the renovation herself. She locates the furniture, paints, stains and fixes it as needed.

“This first year of opening has been pretty good,” Petersen said. “I still hope to expand my customer base and learn more about Sioux Falls about my one stop shop.”

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

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

She showed off a vintage dresser with legs and a newly painted secretarial desk which highlights rustic theme.

“Every month, they 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.”
