Kert owns and runs Sabi & Friends, a vintage home & garden shop in downtown St. Johns. Offering a beautiful selection of vintage goods, curious knick-knacks and antique gems, Sabi & Friends hosts a sampling of any and all treasures under the rainbow. Carefully chosen and thoughtfully (but not too perfectly) staged, it feels as though you're walking through an old friend's home as you peruse the space.
Kitchenware, blankets, furniture, art, books, clothing, accessories... there is a treasure hidden in every nook and cranny and around every corner. That's the dangerous thing about Sabi & Friends; it's hard to resist the temptation to take everything home with you...
And we haven't even touched on the magic of Kert. A St. John's treasure in her own right, Kert is Sabi. She's got a little bit of history to share about each item, offering up a tidbit about where it was found, who owned it or where it's likely been over the years. And she asks questions. About you. She cares about who you are, where you're from, and why you happen to be standing in her shop, looking for something special (whether you know it or not). We really love that about Kert, and value the time, support and affection she's given the St. John's community and neighborhood at large.
Sabi & Friends has loaned out some of their most beautiful vintage furniture for Spoken For's living room set-up, and will be at the event to mingle, mix and meet you.
Visit the Sabi & Friends website and stop by the shop! You'll be glad you did.
