O Deer Mercantile, formerly O Deer ((http://o-deer.com) has recently been migrated from our old domain, so please excuse any glitches while I (Gwen) sort all of this out. For those who might have browsed our Pattern Site (on this Domain), we regret any inconvenience caused from saved or bookmarked links left over from that site. Get to our O Deer Mercantile with this link or through the menu above. We are really excited about this move! It will allow us to consolidate our Brand and hopefully, do some things better than in the past.
Thanks for your patience…
Celebrating the O Deer Lifestyle
Welcome to our Home. Come on in— kick off your shoes and make yourself comfortable. Among the other things you will learn about us if you stay a while, is that we are Southern Girls (in the south, you never really quit being a girl). Even in the generic, homogenized world of the 21st Century, being from the southern region of the United States means that life is a bit slower (it’s the heat and the humidity), very family and community oriented—and that we are infatuated with our Homes, homemaking and decor. Though we may not escape the mad dash that life has become, Southern Hospitality is still a thing, and we are sociable folk.
The women of O Deer Mercantile are an eclectic group, drawn to styles as diverse as Prim, Kawaii and Bohemian— a bit retro, adore vintage and antique but just as comfortable with industrial decor and hi-tech. What binds it all together into a cohesive lifestyle is the Artist’s Eye—a way of looking at our world as an immense canvas to be filled with new experience. We hope you will stay, and check out our posts and articles about gardening, cooking, home-making and other fun or educational activities.
A Re-Purposed Philosophy
At O Deer, we believe art and crafting are a multimedia affair, both in composition and source. Our lifestyles, as well as our materials and handiwork reflect that philosophy. Our work, art and decor merge old and new, thrifted and rescued, in unique combinations. We find joy in utilizing things often overlooked, minimizing waste, making do and rediscovering the forgotten. Thanks for stopping by. We’d love it if you would also hop over to O Deer Mercantile— on Etsy. Visit the shop and look through the varied inventory of vintage items, dolls, and plushies that showcase our eclectic interests and vocations. We are working hard to make our website, our shop and our social media fun and engaging. Please visit often.
