Stylist and founder of Arcadia Vintage
“Collecting vintage clothing and accessories was a hobby of mine for many years. I call it treasure hunting. I launched Arcadia Vintage online in 2011.
To my surprise, the shop sold out within months. Most of my buyers are overseas, looking for quality American-made items from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. In London or Sydney, a girl is wearing a winter coat from Arcadia Vintage—I love it! I set up a studio in Phoenix and downtown Los Angeles where I could focus on styling and marketing, in addition to selling. Taking the leap from hobby to business has been an absolute blessing.”
