For as long as she can remember, Fallon Clark has been a finder of things. In her store, Fallon’s Down Home Vintage, she’s found a pretty sweet spot.
“It’s just in my blood,” she said during a recent interview. “I got the best of both worlds. My parents have been so influential. My dad was a business owner who always bought and re-sold things, and my mom is a creative, crafty person; shoppers can find her amazing seasonal florals in the store, and if we don’t have quite what you need, she’s always happy to create that custom piece you’re longing for.”
Refurbishing found furniture seemed like a natural fit when, as a young woman, she helped her sister furnish her college digs. Before long, Fallon was hosting pop-up boutiques at her Lake Havasu home. Eventually, she opened a store there.
Her latest venture: Fallon’s Down Home Vintage, which opened on Gurley Street in 2021 and moved to a new location this month, at the corner of Granite and Willis Streets downtown (at 225 W. Willis). This spot, which Fallon called the store’s “forever home,” offers 4,000 square feet of space (almost doubling the store’s size). Through Fallon’s Down Home Vintage, Fallon and 10 other local women offer a collection of new, repurposed, and handmade items.
“It’s so fun to redo your home,” Fallon said. “Everyone wants their home to feel warm and comfortable and trendy, but [often] it costs a small goldmine. It doesn’t have to cost a small goldmine for you to love your home.”
To that end, shoppers can find countless items to freshen up their home, including throw pillows, table trays, antique doors, furniture, beeswax candles, seasonal items including florals and wreaths, and more at Fallon’s Down Home Vintage. There is also pre-loved clothing, handmade dog collars, jewelry, and tea.
Fallon strives to fill a niche with Fallon’s Down Home Vintage: in addition to affordable, quality pieces, the store is comfortable and beautiful. Rather than each woman showcasing items in a booth, the items are cross merchandised, so shoppers feel like they’re in an upscale boutique
Plus, the inventory is constantly changing.
“It’s become kind of a joke in the store,” Fallon said. “If you see something you like, you’d better buy it. If you don’t buy it when you see it, it’s going to be gone.”
Another perk: shoppers get the chance to interact with the women who make or sell items at the store. They can bring in pictures of their spaces to get styling advice.
This magic mix has worked: “Since I opened the doors here in Prescott, it’s been amazing,” Fallon said.
Now that Fallon’s Down Home Vintage is in its new, forever location, Fallon hopes it will be even more so.
“I want the store to be a total experience,” she said, adding that she plans to eventually have food trucks in the parking lot so people can spend hours together eating good food, drinking good tea, shopping, and talking.
“I want people to be comfortable, just enjoy the store and its relaxing atmosphere, and have fun.”
