Inspired by two extremely loved vintage legends...

Hello! Thank you for visiting our little shop.

I'm Heather, and my lovely mum and I started on our Etsy adventure to share the magic of vintage with the world. We love sharing clothes, we love talking about clothes, we love shopping for clothes and we both ADORE vintage fashion, so opening up our own store was a no brainer. Our store has something for every shape and size, from MOD classics to romantic florals, from shift dresses to ballgowns and from cowboy boots to wide brim hats!

So whether you're looking to turn heads at a special event or just add a bit of vintage charm into your wardrobe, Rene Loves Ernie has something for everyone.

And if you're wondering where our shop found it's quirky name...

Rene was my Great Aunt, and Ernie was her husband, and my Great Uncle.

Every bank holiday weekend they would drive down to our family home in Buckinghamshire from where they lived in Greenwich to stay with us for the week. With them, they'd always bring fresh salmon from the fishmongers and jellied eels. I remember the jellied eels making my stomach turn.

Rene had permed white hair and always wore pretty diamond earrings, floral dresses and blush pink velour slippers. I don't think those slippers ever left her feet - I'm sure she even wore them to the supermarket. Rene had a heart of gold, but we never wanted to get on her bad side, and Ernie was one of the sweetest men I've ever met in my life. He lived with us for a few years, and even at the grand old age of 85, he loved watching reruns of Friends and The Simpsons with me and my brother. He probably just loved it because we did.

Auntie Rene and Uncle Ernie will always hold a very special place in our hearts. They are true vintage legends and we hope the treasures from the past that you find in our shop will inspire you to breath dreams like air and dance like no one is watching!
