We started with our first retail shop over 18 years ago. We then expanded to 6 other locations, testing out the market and demand of our product. In order to insure a great supply of vintage clothing for our retailers we sold off most of our locations, held onto our flagship spot, and began to focus on wholesaling. Since then we have helped friend’s open shops around the US. We have come up with a formula that has proven to work in almost any market.
With retail markups being some of the highest in the industry, Opening a vintage clothing store can be a very lucrative investment. Unfortunately with the economy being the way it is there are many risks to opening a business. Gathering as much information on suppliers and current markets can be very beneficial to the success of a new business.
Although we can provide you with all the information needed to open and run a successful looking shop, your shop’s success will lie on your will and determination. The options on the next page are different areas that we have helped out others before. You may need more or less involvement from us. This is up to you. Please feel free to fill out this questioner and leave us a little information on the type of service you think may work out best for you. We look forward to hearing from you.
Our desire is to educate people about sustainable business and lifestyles. The daily operations are easy by comparison with a minimal number of employees and relaxed business hours.
Good Luck in your Venture
