The Vintage Year In Review

Posted on 08/01/2015

It’s been a big year for Passionate About Vintage.

We opened our first shop in beautiful West Hampstead and were made to feel exceptionally welcome by the lovely residents and local businesses alike.

Our shop launch was featured on top UK wedding blog, Love My Dress.

We were written up in The Ham & High, The Telegraph, Retail Jeweller, The Vintage Guide to London, The Fabulous Times and Vintage Frills Blog.

Passionate About Vintage jewellery was featured in Amazon best selling book “Style Me Vintage Accessories” written by vintage fashion experts Naomi Thompson and Liz Tregenza, published by Pavilion, photographs by Brent Darby.

Mathew Hancock Minister for Business & Enterprise came to the shop and we discussed what it means to run Passionate About Vintage and talked about the Small Business Saturday campaign.

It was our first Christmas in the shop and our Christmas Shopping event on Dec 6th to celebrate Small Business Saturday was recommended by Time Out as one of the best places to shop on the day. Thousands of businesses around the UK took part and 16.5 million people shopped in small independent businesses on the day!

Passionate About Vintage also became a member of the Antiques Young Guns and showcased a selection of pieces at Grey Antiques in Bond Street.

I visited No.10 Downing street to represent Passionate About Vintage as one of the “Small Business 100″.

I wrote an article on vintage celluloid jewellery, a huge passion of mine, for the first print issue of the brilliant InRetrospect magazine, you can order your copy here.

Passionate About Vintage was featured in the West Hampstead Christmas Gift Guide and written up in the fantastic hyperlocal blog WestHampstead Life.

We would like to say thank you for a fantastic 2014.

We have lots of wonderful things planned for 2015 and we especially can’t wait to celebrate the 1 year anniversary of our shop opening with you all later this year, so stay tuned for more details on that and all our other plans!
