Meet My Friend Debbie Mangual
Shop Owner of the....
"Vintage Soul Store"
The Vintage Soul Store recently moved and is now
located in the heart of Historic Downtown Melbourne, Fl.,
at 822 East New Haven Ave.
The Vintage Soul Store is a charming and sweet shop
where you will find vintage and antique treasures,
shabby chic furniture, beautiful lighting, unique home
accessories featuring a collection of cotton, poplin &
burlap bedding, pillows & slipcovers all designed by
Debbie herself. She also carries an adorable collection
of jewelry and clothing, and occasionally cowgirl boots!
Debbie has this unique talent of turning just about everything
she touches into gold! Her mind is just amazing, and her
talents are many, to also include home decorating and staging
events. She also creates and stages fabulous photo shoots that
are just to die for beautiful! She is just full of creativity, hard
working, down to earth, fun, cute as a button, and a good
kind of crazy gal! :)
Debbie has been featured in several national magazines...
like, Romantic Homes, Romantic Country, Apron-ology,
Somerset Home, Haute Handbags, and Bliss Victoria.
This girl is someone to keep an eye on....I am sure one day,
she will be a house hold name! She is already in many!
She just opened her new shop which was moved from
St. Cloud, Fl. to Melbourne this last weekend. She got
the shop set up in just a couple of hours to be able to open
this last Saturday, as it was Melbourne's 29th Annual Art
Festival. We drove down to congratulate her on her new
adventure and see the shop. I got to take some photo's too!
I can't wait until she has that shop just the way she wants it.
and filled with more of her awesome creativity. I have no
doubt she will do extreamly well in her new location. Just
seeing the faces of her new customers and the pure pleasure
they were having on discovering her shop said it all!
Wishing you all the best Debbie....
you so deserve all your dreams coming true!
Come take a tour and see all the goodies we saw!
You will always find the loveliest vignettes in Deb's store.
I wish this was my bedroom! You most always can be sure
to find ruffles in Debbie's bedding creations.
The added touches with the darling ballet slippers on the
vintage mirror above the bed, the silver vase holding old
vintage paint brushes, even the beer bottle with lavender
just make this setting scrumptious! Add to that, the vintage
bed, the armoir with the gorgeous clothing, the vintage
dresser, the stunning cherub lamp sitting in a shabby tray,
the beautiful old colums, and a touch of the sea just says...Ahhhhhh!
This just screams shabby chic, shabby chic cottage,
and all with a French feel to me!

tucked inside is such a lovely touch.
