Business Spotlight: Camp Vintage

Small businesses and the people who own and work in them are the heart of our Edmonds community. They make our downtown unique, authentic and welcoming.

In this series, we highlight the independently-owned businesses of Downtown Edmonds, and learn more about the folks that make them run!

Meet Logan and Christine Harris from Camp Vintage.

What is your favorite part of your business?
Rescuing smile-inducing and useful vintage items and getting them in the hands of folks who will love them all over again.

Why did you start your business?
We’ve had a passion for junking and finding funky vintage stuff for 20 years, and have long dreamed of opening our own shop.

Why did you choose Edmonds for your business?
We love Edmonds, have wanted to plug into the heart of our community more, to fill a missing gap of vintage shopping here, and to enhance a vibrant downtown shopping and restaurant scene.

What is unique about your business?
We offer a unique, planet-friendly shopping experience from a beloved 1906 craftsman bungalow just steps off of Main Street. It is a feast for the senses, from the charming house and whimsical garden, the mindfully curated inventory, and frasier fir-scented candles, to the eclectic music playing on a 1970s Marantz receiver. It’s the only downtown Edmonds shop fully providing vintage/antique shopping, and is appealing to customers interested in nostalgia, vintage style, shopping sustainably, and items built to last.

Why should people do business with you?
We’re driven to deliver excellent, friendly customer service. We price our items fairly and also offer an option for folks looking to sell vintage items. We don’t do consignment, but can help people who are looking to thin out their own collections, downsize, etc., by purchasing some of their cool old things, and selling them to people who will truly appreciate them all over again.

Tell us a fun fact about yourself!
Christine—the Camp Counselor—still holds her high school’s long jump record. Logan—the Camp Picker—has, by chance, stood backstage at a Springsteen show and front row for a Rolling Stones concert.

Is there anything else you’d like to tell us about your business?
We focus on authentic vintage goods, not reproductions, and feature a rough-hewn mix of nautical, mid-century modern, rusty farm items, vinyl records, clothing, yard art, books, advertising, maps, globes, kitchen, diner ware, Pyrex, linens, tools, old toys, salvage, industrial, gas and oil, beer and sports collectibles, and other quirky treasures. In short, we’re good-natured purveyors of reasonably priced vintage treasures you both did and didn’t know you needed.

What are your hours of business?
We’re open Wednesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday. Closed Monday and Tuesday. Our hours may expand on occasion to meet demand in early evenings and Saturday mornings.
