The Vintage House owner Nan Walvoord and her husband John

The Vintage House...makes your heart smile

The Vintage House, in Historic Downtown Carrollton, Texas, is the place to go when you need to” go places.” Entering this charming historic 100+ year-old “gingerbread” house is like stepping back in time. Famously known as “The Pink House”, The Vintage House at 1101 E Beltline Road, Carrollton, Texas was established in 1988 and is housed in the oldest building in the Historic Downtown.

Owner Nan Walvoord is literally traveling the world in her quest to make The Vintage House a truly unique shopping experience and to gain valuable travel knowledge. Distance traveled includes 45 countries, 42 states and still going. Nan has never met a stranger!

Nan was born in Arkansas and graduated from Ouachita Baptist University in Arkadelphia, Arkansas. She has been married to her sweet & smiling husband John for over 50 years and lived in Carrollton almost that long. You may not know that Nan was the first music teacher in the Carrollton Farmers Branch School District, travelling to 5 different schools to teach children music as well as the children's choir coordinator at First Baptist Church Carrollton for 28 years. Nan also served on the Carrollton-Farmers Branch School Board for two terms and was awarded the first CARROLLTON WOMAN OF THE YEAR AWARD! She became a stay-at-home mom to raise her two children Shaun & Jeanan, however once an "empty nest" was in sight she decided to combine her love for shopping and travel...thus The Vintage House was born!

This unique store was chosen as one of the three national winners in “A Visit from Tracy” contest. The nationally recognized, Tracy Porter, and her design team chose The Vintage House on the basis of product selection, display creativity, and event concept.
