Evolution Vintage on Facebook, and connected with her right away. She's got some really great vintage for sale and even offers consignment for those who are interested.
TVT: Tell us a little about yourself:
EV: I'm a lover of all things beautiful ~ Fashion, Art, Music, Nature. I am a wife and mother (3yr old daughter and one due in May), a writer, artist and creative entity. My goal is to empower and inspire women.
TVT: When did you first start selling vintage?
EV: I started selling Vintage in March of last year. Evolution Vintage turns 1 on March 15!
TVT: Please describe your favorite eras in detail:
EV: This is a really tough question. I can say I liked the 80's the absolute LEAST for both fashion, hair, makeup and music. Each era has its own drawbacks and benefits from the textiles/fabrics, shapes, patterns and accessories. I wish I could take pieces from each era selectively to customize my unique collection and closet. I love that fashion is an industry that is about the recycling of what was past into new fresh ideas for the future. That is the premise of Evolution Vintage: Recycling fashions past into your fashion future. I chose items that I can style current in the eclectic way that one can customize their own style.
TVT: Where do you buy your vintage items?
EV: My Vintage items are sourced from California as well as Ontario Canada. I also have a consignment program. I hand select every piece for my shop in hopes of inspiring women to push their fashion boundaries and try something 'new'.
TVT: Where are your products sold (online/stores)?
EV: All my vintage items are sold on-line. I wanted to reach a larger market than a regular brick and mortar store could. You can purchase my items direct from the eBouique: Evolution Vintage and at Evolution Vintage on Etsy. I have just opened my Etsy shop so not all the items are there.
TVT: What advice can you give others who are interested in selling vintage?
EV: The most important advice is - DO IT! don't let others talk you out of it or let the work load overwhelm you. Stay focused and take it one step at a time. Anything in life worth having takes risk and a lot of hard work. I truly believe that there is room for everyone. Don't be afraid to ask questions or ask for help. GO FOR IT!
TVT: Describe yourself in three words:
EV: Passionate, Confident, Honest
TVT: Is there is anything else you'd like to share with us?
