About

Vintage Reborn

I have always had a love of everything antique and vintage. My grandfather was an antique dealer, and I would love spending the days in his shop. My room was always full of antiques. . .My first "big girl bed" was a white iron bed frame that had been passed down from generation to generation. When I would go visit my Nana's house, I would love sitting at her vanity and playing with my great-grandma's "earbobs" and all of her trinkets. I never thought I would turn it into a business, though.

I graduated from college a few years ago and I never could find a serious career. . .Everyone wanted experience over a degree, and I had the degree with no experience. Finally my mom suggested I just do something I really love, so I followed in the family footsteps of starting my own business and turned a hobby into a career.

I try to save each piece of jewelry. I do minor repairs when needed, and clean like crazy. There are those pieces that are past the point of no return, though, but I can't just throw them out. That's where the "reborn" part comes in. I make something new out of the jewelry, whether it be a bookmark, keychain, wreath, whatever I can make. I also research each piece I sell. I try to keep fair prices and accurate descriptions.

    I never thought I would be starting my own vintage business. I graduated a few years ago with a degree in Criminal Justice, but could never find a job in that field. . .So I just turned my hobby into a job. Now I share my love of vintage with all.
