In the beginning before I had the store and the customer base, it was just things that I liked, that I would wear, that I thought were unique, rare, or old. Sometimes, the older the better. But being in business for the past four years, I've learned what my customers like, what they gravitate towards, and what ends up selling. It's a good balance and it's been a learning experience to figure out what I should carry. I've bought some things thinking like this is fucking rad and then it sits in the shop for months on end. Then with some things, I'm iffy when I'm buying it, and then it sells the same day.
It's all about having that trained eye and in no way do I think I'm an expert whatsoever, but I'm learning every day. And I think I've gotten relatively good at it. Same with Sami; she has a really good eye. It's always a treasure hunt though and that’s the thing about vintage, it’s always so up in the air.
