Crimson Clover Vintage is owned by Tim and Taryn Jackson. And it simply had to be launched, because Tim’s typewriter collection was outgrowing the house. Plus Taryn couldn’t stop buying red and teal decor for their ’50s diner-inspired kitchen. In addition to being a reference to the old song by Tommy James & The Shondells (Joan Jett has a good version, too) the company name is also a nod to Tim’s favorite football team and Taryn’s Irish roots.

By trade, Tim & Taryn are writers and editors and—because they love historical places—together they’ve authored two books: a pictorial history about the town of Weaverville that was released by Arcadia Publishing and a travel guide to the Natchez Trace Parkway. Did we mention that Tim even has tattoos of a typewriter, a phonograph, a folding camera, a cathedral radio, and a vintage microphone? That’s dedication, people. Here’s to living your best vintage life!
