ABOUT SVR

DAWN CROTHERS

FOUNDER + OWNER

Patina-stalker, mother to Hank (and a sweet girl on the way), 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.

LAUREN

CLIENT EXPERIENCE DIRECTOR

Part of one great big loud, loving, Cuban family that spans New York to Miami, resident Pandora DJ and Movie Expert, Lauren is a literature enthusiast with a serious case of wanderlust. She has a soft spot for SVR’s upholstery, and is always ready with a witty name for our latest finds. Can’t decide on your perfect lounge set up? Lauren’s the girl to effortlessly whip up packages to capture that je ne sais quoi you’re looking for. She has been with Something Vintage since February of 2016.

TIFFANY

CHIEF INVENTORY CURATOR 

West Coast transplant with an eye for relaxed glamour, Tiffany brings her boho-cool to the us East Coasters. Military wife, and mother of two (with another tiny one of the way), she is an expert in everything from power tools to floral arrangements. Basically, she rocks. Tiff has been with SVR since 2014.

ZACH

RESIDENT CRAFTSMAN

Married to Dawn, father to Hank (with a little girl on the way!), pug-tolerant, passion for salvaging reclaimed wood, industrial pieces and geeky sci-fi movies.  Ends up lifting, moving and dealing with all the heavy "garbage" Dawn picks out.  Proudly renovated his DC rowhouse.  Always sarcastic and ready with a joke.

KELSEY

MARKETING DIRECTOR + STYLIST

Self-admitted estate sale junkie with 100 different Ebay alerts. Social media strategist and firm believer in the power of emojis. Momma to Grady. Trained as a metalsmith, an eye for quality drew her into the wonderful world of heirloom finds (much to her husband’s chagrin), and she has made herself right at home as SVR’s newest addition!
