About

 

 WHO WE ARE

We are a carefully curated store of handmade goods and vintage finds for home, body, and being. We are here to support our communities, educate, share, and host events to connect us with a more holistic and inclusive form of design and retail.

It is our vision to cultivate a community of inspiration through the careful curation of meaningful objects. We like pretty things and kind, creative people. And we know you do too.

 WHAT WE ARE ABOUT

Ardent: characterized by warmth of feeling typically expressed in eager, passionate support.

That's how we feel about life, the objects we use to enrich it, and the people who create them. We exist for the inspiration, creation, and collection of goods.
We like pretty objects, powerfully creative people, and good energies. When the opportunity came to combine all of our favorite things, it couldn't be pass it up.
At Ardent Market, we believe in turning routines into rituals, celebrating the finer things in life, and honoring the talent and humanity in our communities.
