Well hello there! We decided it was probably about time to get this whole blog thing started so, welcome to our very first blog post!
I'm April, owner of Pieceology Vintage. I wanted this first post to be an introduction about how I became a vintage seller and started my shop. But first, let me give you the lowdown of what you will be able to find here at the Pieceology Vintage blog.
My hope is that this blog will be a source of inspiration for you. We will feature DIYs, styled shoots, lookbook previews, Pinterest faves, and talk about sustainable fashion and how you can get the most out of your favorite vintage pieces + much, much more!
OK, now back to the subject of this post! So, how did I become a vintage seller? Well, it’s a pretty serendipitous story actually.
I used to have a fashion blog and I wanted to expand my knowledge of social media in an effort to grow it. I ended up stumbling upon a social media workshop being hosted by one of my favorite boss lady's, Justina Blakeney, which just so happened to be taking place in Italy during the same time I was traveling there back in the summer of 2015. I couldn't pass up the chance to go to it! The timing was way too perfect.
While at the workshop I met a fellow attendee who had recently started a vintage wholesale business marketing to sellers in the U.S. I'd always wanted to open my own clothing shop and I'd always loved vintage, but never knew where to start, until then. Attending that workshop and meeting my new friend created the opportunity for me to become a vintage seller and start Pieceology Vintage.
Since then, I've learned a heck of a lot about this industry and have loved every second of it!
Stay tuned for more from our blog. We are so excited to have this outlet to share all the things with you!
P.S. Thanks to my friend Diana Ascarrunz for these gorgeous film photos of me!
