Second Chance Art & Accessories

Vintage and vintage inspired art and home accessories

Our business, Second Chance Art & Accessories, was started as a hobby in 2005 by Amy Manning.  Amy’s love of flea market shopping necessitated a creative outlet, so she turned her vintage finds into home accessories and began selling them at street festivals.  The business soon became a full time job, and Derek (Amy’s hubby) joined her full time in 2013.

When we started, all of our products were made from vintage architectural salvage.  While many of our items still include an upcycled component, we have designed some new items with a vintage look and feel – inspired by old things.

We currently have a small team, including our two young daughters, that help make our product line in our Minooka, IL workshop.
