I have been in love with vintage possibly since I can remember. Even as a teenager I would search through the second hand stores for clothes that were a bit different, which, if you were a teenage in the 90's you will remember that looking 'a bit different' was celebrated as much as it is now. I admit I did try to fit in with my adidas tracksuit bottoms and (I am inwardly cringing as I type) a gold sovereign ring but my heart just wasn't in it.
So it was with great relief (and detriment to my bank account) that in my mid-twenties vintage clothing started to become more accessible.
After spending the past 5 years trawling through vintage warehouses, markets and peoples attics I can spot a vintage gem a mile off and have decided to use this talent to open up my own shop....Hummingbird Vintage.
I have decided to stock things I love in the hope that everyone else will love them too and I will be posting my new finds, things I love and the trials and tribulations of opening up my own business here...
So any advice, thoughts, uplifting words are very welcome x
