When shopping for vintage furniture for their first home together, Martha and Conner stumbled upon an advert, advertising a vintage shop that was for sale. After a quick visit to the store, although it was clearsome TLC was needed, they were on board with the idea.
With Martha due to graduate with a degree in Fashion Marketing and Branding, and Conner having always been a self-employed DJ and music producer, combined they had enough experience to make it work. Delving into their savings, they brought the old shop back to life. Re-branding and renovating the place, Relic Vintage was born again. With this being their first joint business venture, the couple are always up for taking risks to figure out what works best for the business. Learning as they go, they’ve managed to create a business they enjoy working for.
Ensuring their clothes are affordable for students, Relic Vintage supply 80’s, 90’s and 00’s sports, design and streetwear that can be hard to find elsewhere. Understanding how time-consuming vintage shopping can be, Martha and Conner have created somewhere you can find it all. Offering their customers an easy and ethical way of shopping, whilst still ensuring their vintage needs are met.
Relic Vintage is also home to Norman, the English Bulldog, so whilst going into store is recommended, Relic Vintage can also be found on Depop and AsosMarketplace. So, should you have any problems finding what you’re looking for in store, you can always go searching online.
