We are your source for eco-friendly, dope vintage nostlagia.

Our customers are given a piece of history through our specially curated clothing, accessories and memorabilia from the 80s & 90s. We exist to move the vintage culture forward and to give new life to the past.

Our History
Our story starts with two friends turned unlikely business partners.

In late 2017, Jess expressed to Josh her desire to start her own business. She wanted to build something she could call her own and to show her daughter she can achieve anything she puts her mind to.

Josh was open to the idea of partnering up and starting a business, but neither were completely sure of what to do. During the holiday season, Josh’s younger cousin introduced him to vintage clothing and the ever growing culture surrounding it. Josh, as a fashion enthusiast, was intrigued and brought the idea back to Jess and the two agreed this would be an exciting venture to begin.

They immediately started thrifting for inventory. From 2017 to now, they have learned to identify, date, source product, and fine-tuned their expertise of vintage apparel. They carefully and thoughtfully curate their inventory to bring the very best vintage clothing to their customers. Their journey has been an exciting one thus far. They are thrilled to see where it takes them next and would love it if you came along for the ride!
