What a year. If it feels like you heard about shopping vintage more than ever in 2022, that's because you did!
ELLE claimed that vintage has gone viral. Forbes wrote about Gen Z finding stability in sustainability. The Washington Post declared supply chain issues a boon for antiques and vintage.
On a more local level, this has been the first year since 2019 that vintage markets have been fully back in swing, too — and a lot has changed. I talked to vintage industry veteran and founder of Hippie Market Kealan Sullivan about what's been happening in the sector. Scroll down to dig in.
I changed email providers recently, so we have a slightly different newsletter look (again). If you experience problems with the display or links, please do let me know.
Happy holidays and all the best for 2023! Happy hunting.
