MEET THE TEAM

“The strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team.”

JULIE AUSTIN-DEAR

Julie accidentally fell into her love of vintage clothing.  It all started when she volunteered for a charity shop quite a few years ago and ended up managing three stores, one specialising in Vintage clothing. Being creative with a background in Graphic Design, Julie admires the attention to detail in vintage clothing taking great interest in each individual design and era and being inspired in her own art practice by the unique fabric design that have stood the test of time.  You'll find Julie in-store during the week, tinkering with the merchandising whilst curating the eclectic mix of clothing in store!
