What inspired you to open up a vintage store?
If you’re a creative person you know that when you’re doing something you’re passionate about you work 10 times harder, so deciding to work for myself made sense.

Why do you buy vintage?
Buying vintage ticks many boxes for us, we have so much in this world already that we believe it’s really important to reduce and reuse. It’s also so enjoyable finding one of a kind pieces and wondering what life they have already lived. The quality of clothing these days too just isn’t what it used to be.
