Sponsor Spotlight: Interview with Vantage Point Vintage


I recently interview the lovely Jenny who runs the amazing online vintage shop Vantage Point Vintage.
here’s what she had to say!
How long have you been selling vintage fashion for?
We've been selling vintage since January of 2008.

Why vintage fashion?
It's sustainable. It's unique. It's one of a kind! I was actually thinking about this question today when I was chatting with my mom. I went out to eat with a friend and she was wearing the same shirt that my mom just purchased. My mom shared that she when she went to the movies recently she almost sat next to a woman wearing that same shirt. This doesn't happen with vintage.








Where do you find the amazing pieces in your shop?
We hand pick items all over area and sometimes go on buying trips. We also have developed a great professional network that keeps their ear to the wall to let us know where the next great vintage haul will be.


What are your favourite pieces and why?
That's tough. I really like 60's / 70's cute girl dresses but I'm a sucker for 70's & 80's band and concert t-shirts. I just bought a 1979 Styx North American Tour t-shirt that I wore today. Living in Florida it's usually warm or hot and great vintage band tees are comfy for our climate but still make a great statement.


Where do you see yourself/ the store in 5 years time?
That's a great question. Josh and I really hope that VPV will grow to the point were we can be more involved in the greater good. That's really our primary goal. We've been fortunate to work with young woman in the fashion industry locally and feel fortunate to help them work towards reaching their dreams in growing in the fashion industry and even more than that growing into strong, confident young women that are difference makers. We are hopeful that in the next few years we'll be able to launch our own line that is vintage inspired. Obviously we want it to be a fabulous product that is tailored towards our great customers and friends. More specifically we want it to be created and promoted by young women (especially young women who have been disenfranchised) and give them an opportunity to utilize their gifts and reach towards the stars.
