We were recently admiring the newly-arrived vintage available both in-store and online from Candystore Collective and just had to learn a little more. From whence did these lovely garments come? And could we expect this swell in vintage to continue on?
Upon asking, we learned that Candystore has stocked vintage finds since its beginnings as a pop-up shop called Hot! back in late 2004, but had seen its supply wane somewhat over the last year-and-a-half after the indie fashion-friendly store’s main supplier, who’s also mom to store founder Jennifer Jones, headed north to Portland. Luckily for fans of the shop’s pretty retro frocks, print tops and accessories, Jones has serious drive where vintage is concerned.
“But now I’ve made a commitment to get a cargo van and bring her finds back twice a year so we always have inventory….We have much much more to come,” Jones tells us.
