1. How did you start your adventure in selling vintage clothes?
I got into vintage clothing by accident, while studying antique furniture to furnish a 1930’s house in Louisiana. I would be shopping for antiques when suddenly a vintage handbag or jewelry of unusual quality and beauty would catch my eye. I’d always be shocked at what good value these items were when compared to the prices of their modern day equivalents. So I started collecting vintage accessories for personal use, which eventually led to vintage clothing and entire outfits. Once I noticed how much my knowledge in this area had grown in such a short time, I decided in 2013 to turn a passionate hobby into a small business that I could grow over time at my own pace. So it’s been a labor of love from the very beginning.
