Photos from our recent mini collab with Tuesday Vintage!
Stylist, buyer, creative genius, director, mother. Just a few of the many titles that belong to multi-talented Rachel from Tuesday Vintage. What started out as an Etsy store about 4 years ago has grown into a successful online hoard of eclectic vintage clothing that you just can't find anywhere else here in Australia. Rachel's unique buying skills translate through to her styling for other vintage stores and brands, She has even worked backstage at a Chanel fashion show!
What inspired you to start a vintage store in the first place?
If we're being honest here I'm going to say that I was definitely sick of working for 'The Man'! I guess I never really meant to start a business, I opened an Instagram store and it turned into a business! I do have these cute little memories Op shopping with my Mum and younger sister at a young age though, thats definitely where my love for vintage blossomed.
We hear you recently worked backstage at a Chanel fashion show! What was that like?
It was so much fun! I met some really cool people.. The detailing in each garment was so beautiful and intense! Loved every minute of it - and I got to work with my bestie!
It's the worst day in the whole entire week! I don't know! But i did have the greatest pet rabbit and his name was Tuesday. Had him for years, he was so great.
How do you manage to run a full time business along with being the wonderful Mother that you are?
I have an amazing intern that works with me, a seamstress and a few freelance writers / contributors that do the blog. Mine and my partners parents are super supportive and babysit when they can! All in all, Phoenix is so chilled out, he really is the best kid. I got lucky!
How do you decide what to buy and what will sell?
If i told you i'd have to kill you :)
What advice do you have for other Mum's out there that might want to go into business or start a creative venture?
Just do it and hustle hard!
