The Story of Kat and Jane

Two women at the end of their ropes...
Weaving more rope as they go along...

Kateria (Kat) and Vanessa (Jane) have known one another for years. They met around 1999, working at the same dead-end job; both creative types and making loads of money but never feeling quite fulfilled with "the churn".

Vanessa, being a talented fine artist and all-round renaissance woman had a certain flair and aesthetic for fashion. She also had strong opinions about it as well.

And Kateria, making her contribution in digital marketing for some of the largest publishers in the world, was quite frankly...bored out of her mind.

The Story of Kat and Jane

Two women at the end of their ropes...
Weaving more rope as they go along...

Kateria (Kat) and Vanessa (Jane) have known one another for years. They met around 1999, working at the same dead-end job; both creative types and making loads of money but never feeling quite fulfilled with "the churn".

Vanessa, being a talented fine artist and all-round renaissance woman had a certain flair and aesthetic for fashion. She also had strong opinions about it as well.

And Kateria, making her contribution in digital marketing for some of the largest publishers in the world, was quite frankly...bored out of her mind.

In early 2014, the ladies were sitting around chillin', when Vanessa said: "Me and you Kat gonna make some cash. Sellin' ole' clothes and makin' a dash" This prompted Kat to reply: "Well, you know we got to get our hustle on!" And that is truly how it began! Vanessa curates and Kateria markets. The balance is perfect.

But all kidding aside, they love what they do, because they enjoy what they do; discovering the unexpected, the extraordinary, and vintage clothing and accessories they think you'll love.

Feel free to tell Kat and Jane what you think about their simple and fun business of making people happy through their love for specially curated vintage.
