“I love the Diana Vreeland quip about the life you know you want, and making it for yourself. We make ourselves interesting through the books we read, the places we visit, and the things we wear. This is where my love of vintage comes from – the things that people have previously owned from the different eras project a certain style or story about who they are. I have loved anything old and vintage for years. I got started around 1995, living in expansive London, still a student looking for cheaper pre-loved accessories and clothing to wear. My passion is vintage jewellery and bags. The hunt itself is very rewarding for me and probably why I’ve stayed connected to vintage for so long. I love the fact that vintage pieces develop a patina of those stories making them so much more unique than something new. Right now though I’m interested in scarcity, which makes the hunt more thrilling". "Since then, I began researching about vintage. Every bag and jewellery I see, I know exactly which era it came from, how to gauge quality, how rare it is, whether it'll last.I look for nostalgia, meaningful, functioning and timeless pieces."
