Located among Tacoma's Antique Row's charming shops you'll discover Millesime Designs. Though quaint in size, owner Summer Hess Briggs brings the style and whimsy in her one of a kind up-cycled treasures.

Every eight weeks Briggs revamps the storefront space with a new color combo and theme. Pops of yellows starkly contrasted with blacks can be found one visit, kitschy reds and comics the next and vibrant baby blues with vintage touches make each shopping adventure new and exciting.

You'll find large up-cycled dressers, fabulously updated coffee tables and compelling dioramas and knick-knacks galore. Visits to the shop often leave me feeling like I've traveled down the rabbit hole with Alice as ceramic owls hold my gaze from their perches surrounded by little glass bottles meant for potions.

If you're seeking to find a creative spark to fuel your next Pinterest project you will also find DIY kits for $7. These little goodies bags are filled with random items that Briggs has put together including but not limited to vintage keys, birds' nests, game pieces and more.

An added bonus: Briggs is always on site and offers fabulous conversation.

Her husband, Daniel, is also often in house promoting his The One Spot jam concoctions that include bold flavors like blueberry basil and cayenne and peach.

MILLESIME DESIGNS, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday-Saturday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday, 745 Broadway, Tacoma, 253.722.5100
