If you’ve found this site, you must be a fellow MidCentury aficionado.  Welcome!  My name is Kelly Santaguida and this site is the result of my love of the 1950’s and 1960’s.  Pair this with the curiosity of what lies beyond the local shops in my own back yard, and the frustration of being able to easily find said shops.  Yes, it’s fun to find things online.  But I wanted to be able to actually sit in the Eames rocker prior to purchasing it.  Are you seeing the site vision?

miccentury_kellyI also love perusing local shops.  Checking out their goods – touching the smooth teak finish of a Danish credenza, sitting on the Baumritter sofa, turning the bubble lamp on and off, admiring the bullet planter.  The owners of these shops always have a story to tell and I love hearing them!  They are as much a part of the store as the Saarinen tulip table and matching chairs!

I knew I could not be the only person out there that had the itch to check out the shops in other cities.  How many times have you been on vacation and wanted to check out the locals?  Problem is, there are no sites out there that have all those shops listed on one site.  That is the intent behind MidCenturyRoadTrip.  This list of shops is constantly evolving, so if you know of a shop that should be listed, contact us and let us know!

I hope you enjoy this site and visit often.  We want to know what makes your heart skip a beat.  Share your pictures and let us know where your road trip takes you!

Safe travels and happy shopping!
