In with the old, out with the new

(this evening, in the evening)

Vintage fashion curated with dark aesthetics in mind by artist and model Casstronaut. Inspired by the macabre, forgotten pasts, nostalgia, and an indifference toward modern fashion and a love for the old. All harvested in Nashville, TN.

Vespere Vintage came about when curator Cassie Meder began fervently picking through piles of precious "junk" throughout various estate sales in her new home in Nashville. Cassie is originally from Portland, Oregon, but hunting for treasures in the Pacific Northwest was becoming quite dull, as the western side of the United States is much younger than that of the east and the south. Inspired by the colonial architecture, the dark history, and the overall antique culture of her new home, she became overwhelmed and felt that she needed to collect it all. That's right, the buildings and monuments and everything. But alas, there's no closet room in the SS Casstronaut for a house full of vintage, so she felt that joining the ranks of vintage sellers would appease her hunger for the hunt.

There's a great desire within all of us to connect with our past. There's a great desire within us to preserve and protect what we already do have. Buying second hand clothing preserves the past and also puts one more dent in the fast fashion industry that only produces waste and abolishes any uniqueness we have left.

I love only having to answer to myself and my customers. I love caring about what I do and being able to combine life and work. And I love the appreciation I receive from my customers, whether it be intentional or unintentional support.

So thank you in advance, and I hope to please all of you, as I make your needs my utmost priority.

    Owner, Curator, Customer Service

    Casstronaut (Cassie by birth) is a seasoned freelance filmmaker, illustrator, and model from Portland, Oregon. She now resides in Nashville, Tennessee where she mostly only talks to her black cat and watches a lot of Star Trek.

  • John


    John is an award winning filmmaker with quite an impressive resume - we're not quite sure how he got into this fashion mess. Probably because Cassie needs to be fed and watered as she forgets she's human. He also captures her essence in photo form.
