Vintage Home South

Durham, NC-based Vintage Home South opened in 2015 in the charming historic neighborhood of Old West Durham, offering a carefully curated mix of vintage, vintage-inspired, and repurposed furniture and home decor. A member of the Rowe family of retailers since 2019, the shop is owned and operated by Jen and Rich Devlin, a married team whose individual strengths are perfectly suited to the running of their unique business. Their shared hospitality background and passion for customer service creates a welcoming environment that showcases their refined-casual style. “We have opposite skill sets so it works perfectly because neither one of us wants to do what the other is doing,” jokes Jen, adding, “he’s the numbers geek, while I’m the fluffer!” When not at their store, Jen and Rich enjoy spending time with their dogs Hammy and Tupelo, as well as enjoying the local antique shops, flea markets, eateries and lovely surroundings offered by their neighborhood.

“We like to joke that I’m the gas and [Rich is] the brakes…it couldn’t be more true!!!”
