About

"call me Robin Hood of Beijing"

I grew up and still live in Beijing, a very vibrant city that undergoes more changes in a year than other towns in a decade. Unfortunately not always for the better and so many things are lost and vanish it's sometimes hard to keep track. Old things don't have a high value and we never established a second-hand culture. My husband on the other hand is from Vienna the absolute opposite of Beijing, seemingly unchanged since hundreds of years and with vintage shops and markets on every corner.

We are both designers and love to explore hidden corners. Having amassed a great number of cute trinkets and old things on our trips and excursions keeping them to ourselves seemed somehow pointless so I decided to join Etsy and share my finds and sell them to like-minded people. We are still out on the streets, I'm surfing the net and checking and treating with other vintage affectionados to get hold of more interesting items.

    Yes Sophia that is me. I basically do everything by myself. Scout for vintage treats, take product shots and write texts. Feed the Facebook page and Pinterest, reply your covos and carry your orders to the post office ; )
