My name is JayDee and I'm the owner of ThirdShift... and I have a passion for vintage items! I started ThirdShift in 2011 - and since that time, I have shipped over 13,500 vintage treasures to new homes around the world!
I love travelling near and far to seek out unique vintage items. I enjoy digging through dusty barns, wandering through flea markets, and pouring through estate sale items to find perfect vintage treasures to love. My heart beats a little faster every time I spot something that I "know" is a perfect fit for ThirdShift - and for you, my customers.
ThirdShift is a fun, simple, and unique shopping experience to help you obtain vintage treasures, all from the comfort of your home.I believe passionately in offering awesome vintage items and exceptional customer service, which is why I commit to giving you the best of both. I carefully select only items that I genuinely love, and then share my ideas for using these items with you - something unique to ThirdShift!
If you’re looking for unique vintage, you’re in the right place. I strive to be industrious and innovative, offering you, my customer, the items you want... putting your desires at the top of my priority list.
It's a great feeling to own a special piece of the past and have it on display in your home. Something that makes your decor unique. Something that is no longer made, but still has a life and history of its own. Vintage items have character! These vintage relics often leave an impression on you... they quickly become treasures that leave an imprint on your heart. Knowing a vintage piece had a previous owner makes it fun and exciting to imagine the item's history! If only vintage treasures could talk, imagine the tales they could tell!
Going Full Time
When I first started ThirdShift, I owned and operated two other businesses. I worked late nights and weekends to establish this new business... hence the name "ThirdShift". I knew this is where I wanted to focus all my energy and passion that I have for vintage. ThirdShift is now 100% of my focus and is my full time business.
A Family Affair
ThirdShift is truly a family effort. My husband is the technical handyman - able to restore, repair, re-engineer, rebuild or renovate most anything. My three boys are my partners, and travel with me on our treasure-hunting adventures. We have so much fun working together!
In the Media
Our shop and products have been featured in Country Living Magazine, national online magazines, and on numerous designer blogs. Our unique vintage products have been used as props in period television shows, Showtime and HBO mini-series, as props in popular movies, as well as props in photo shoots for major clothing designers. It's so exciting to see our treasures find their way to all corners of the world... and see some become TV stars! See more at In the Media.
Making This Fun For You!
I think everyone should have FUN in their lives! And I am dedicated to creating a fun shopping experience for you, my customers. In addition to maintaining an exciting and eclectic assortment of vintage pieces for you to choose from, I also enjoy sharing my creative ideas for using the things you'll find at ThirdShift.
The products at ThirdShift are ever-changing. You’re sure to find something that reminds you of your childhood, something that would make the perfect gift for someone, or a perfect piece for your home, office, or man cave decor!
Have fun shopping at ThirdShift - we’ll keep on working overtime to bring you more exciting items!
The Face Behind the Brand
My family and I live in rural Minnesota. When we aren't out adventuring and rescuing vintage treasures, we enjoy the outdoors, entertaining family and friends at home, and I love to pursue my photography hobby.
