Thank you for joining me! I’m very proud to announce the launch of STUDIO FourThirteen and can’t wait to see where this road takes me.
I have always loved clothes and fashion, but I’d be lying if I said I always loved hunting for vintage pieces. As we all know, things change as we age, and my love for vintage is something that definitely evolved over the years. I can vividly remember being in thrift stores with my parents as a child and believe me when I say, I wasn’t thrilled in the least. I would hide with shame if I saw someone I knew in the store and would lie about where my clothes were from if I did happen to find and wear a thrifted treasure to school or with friends. Little did I know that I would be here one day, opening a vintage shop of my very own.
For years now I have loved the hunt and I truly am a kid in a candy store every time I walk into a thrift, antique, or consignment shop. I’ll text my girlfriends pictures of treasures that are perfect for them and I can’t help but share photos with friends whenever I pick up a find for myself. Opening a shop of my own to share my love of all things vintage is something I’ve thought about doing for years and as I approach my 25th birthday I figured, “What the hell”! Never again will I have to to pass up a thrifted find!! Truly, a dream come true.
Credit must be given where it is due and I could not have done this without the help of my nearest and dearest. Big thanks go out to my boyfriend for joining me on nearly every vintage hunt I set out on, for the hours of technical and photography support, and last but definitely not least, for making the website! Also, I must shout out to one of my best girlfriends (you know who you are) for the styling inspiration, help with photoshoots and for volunteering to be a model whenever needed.
Lastly, thanks to all of my friends and family that have supported me in creating STUDIO FourThirteen the past few months and to you, for being here and visiting the shop.
I hope you enjoy.
