What happens when you combine a group of artisans, a driven woman and a beautiful storefront? You get something that looks very similar to the new Artifact LV.
Located in The Market at Tivoli Village, Artifact is helmed by a very talented woman, and my good friend, Molly Walters. After a successful career in high end retail, Molly switched gears and decided to set about making her own dreams come true. Insert Artifact, a store dedicated to re-purposed items, vintage style and local artists.
Every nook and cranny of this boutique style store has treasures piled into it. Walking through the space is comparable to visiting an estate sale where someone went through ahead of you and sorted out all the good stuff. And unlike the typical internet shopping experience where you rely on comments and hopefully accurate pictures, at Artifact you can touch…everything!
I’m not going to lie… I may have looked like a kid at Disneyland. Poor Ryan.
Another highlight is Molly’s gift for creating inviting displays. I wanted to live in the Art Corner, no joke. I loved the vibe so much that I talked about wire hangers to the point where Ryan created a similar style wall in our house… just to get me to shut up about it.
Of course our new wall happens to be the perfect spot for one of those print beauties I was able to snatch up. Hello Inspiration!
And don’t forget the kiddos! As a mother, Molly understands the need to please even the littlest shopaholic. Near the back of the store is a HUGE table covered in brightly colored art supplies and child-centric goodies. Artifact is planning crafting classes in the future and I have a feeling that many little masterpieces will be made at that table.
Not really a crafter? I know you Soul Sister, you prefer to wear your art. How do mood boards centered around style icons from the past and bedecked with vintage finds sound?
Put down the bubbly and head over to Artifact because they have that too! Whether you need an entire ensemble or just a bauble, you’ll find it here. You should have heard my justification skills at work… man I wanted that green dress.
On a personal note, I have to wish Molly a very BIG congratulations on Artifact. Not only are the items inside an inspiration, but so is the woman behind the desk. It’s only recently opened, but we understand why Molly all ready has plans for an additional three locations.
We definitely want more! If you do too, then head over to Tivoli Village and visit Artifact! Or if you’re more of a social media maven, give them some love on their Artifact LV Facebook Page.
