An Afternoon with Vault & Vine / by Joanna Nowak

I had the awesome opportunity of spending a few hours at Vault & Vine in East Falls, Philadelphia. My good friend Sarah, whom I know from working at a local printshop, Second State Press, is an event designer for the "V&V" (as the insiders call it). She invited me to come take some photos and attend an evening wreath-making workshop. Sarah gave me a grand tour during which I was able to meet most of the team, including the multitalented and hospitable owner Peicha Chang, who later taught me the artistry of successful wreath-making. Vault & Vine's space is enchanting- each detail tended to with thought and care. There's a beautiful cafe space, a retail area that sells many goodies from fragrant fresh-cut flowers to cozy alpaca socks, an abundant greenhouse and even an upstairs workshop area where a handful of guests created their beautiful fall-inspired wreaths. It was a really special day and even ended in a hilarious photo and video shoot (these will remain secret).
