I’m Alison Rose, owner of Alison Rose Vintage, and I define myself as an old soul with a generous heart. I’m deeply passionate about words and giving. I’ve been a lover of words for as long as I can remember—majoring in English in college, obsessively collecting stationery, and writing letters to friends and family since I was 11 years old.
Words can mean much more to us than a dictionary definition—it’s the people and experiences we attach to words that give them their deeper meanings. With this in mind, I began writing my own whimsical definitions for words and selling them in my shop. I later added quotes, poems, and antique books.
The goal of Alison Rose Vintage is to spread love and hope, giving you and your loved ones word art to look at and share that encourages, inspires, and comforts.
My sister, Amanda, died unexpectedly in 2020. When we were going through her belongings, we came across a giant box of every letter and card anyone ever sent her—including all of the ones I sent to her over the years. It reminded me that people truly appreciate receiving these little pieces of love, and they hold onto them. This fuels my passion for making cards and prints that I know will be cherished by your loved ones for many years to come.
I'm originally from West Virginia, lived in Ohio and Massachusetts for many years, and I now reside in East Tennessee near the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
I love to snuggle my dog, read non-fiction and poetry, volunteer, donate to social justice and mental health causes, shop for antiques, and explore beautiful places.
