Slow shipping, pictures seem deceiving for how the item actually looks

The beginning...

smallneeds -and its sister shop RetroRhapsody- is a small business and vintage studio located in sunny Miami, Florida. It all started with a vision to bring sustainable, reusable and often forgotten items and objects back to life. Curated, styled and sourced by Kenia Fowler, a Cuban born collector with an undying love of classic and timeless styles and an unbeatable appreciation of anything from decades past- the collection continues to offer relevant styles that are hand selected with passion and care. Born to a family of artists, writers and journalists, Kenia is always seeking inspiration and creative ways to share her treasures with the eager to conserve beauty in one way or another. Whether it is a wool floor sweeping coat, a linen dress or silk blouse, or a woven wall tapestry we are always seeking rare, beautiful items to compliment your wardrobe, home and lifestyle.

smallneeds originated in response to the growing interest in modern and contemporary, new age vintage garments As we continue to evolve into more curated palates; the idea or incorporating vintage clothing from more recent decades into RetroRhapsody made less sense. And smallneeds continues to grow into much more than a sister store or side project.

Our focus is not only staying on trend- but seeking quality vintage with timeless durability to help you build your capsule wardrobe. Thus the name smallneeds - as we hope you will need less, buy less and truly enjoy your items for years to come.

A mother and wife, Kenia has worked with local designers to source rare vintage for inspiration and study since 2013. She enjoys traveling, great food, a good read and a good treasure hunt.
