O Deer Mercantile, formerly O-Deer (http://o-deer.com) has recently migrated from the old domain. 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 Etsy Shop with this link, or through the menu above.  We are so 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 in— kick off your shoes and make yourself comfortable. Among 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 centered—and that we are infatuated with our Homes, homemaking and decor. Though we can’t entirely escape the mad dash that life is these days, 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 together into a cohesive lifestyle is the Artist’s Eye—a way of looking at the world as an immense canvas to be filled with new experience. We hope you will stay, and check out our posts and articles about thrifting, crafting, home-making, and Life.

A Re-Purposed Philosophy

At O Deer Mercantile, 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.
