Business Name: PAST Vintage Shop
Shops where people can find you: inside Antique Plaza Annex
Personal bio: When we started working in Antique Plaza, we were pursuing degrees at ASU in graphic design, journalism and photography—little did we know how much that would serve us in this new endeavor. Add in Greg’s accounting/business management background, and we really are the perfect team!
How did you start your business & why? The three of us girls began working at the Antique Plaza as an after-school job when we were teenagers. We fell in love with the world of antiques and hunting for vintage treasures and became great friends with the owner in the process. Our passion has slowly grown over the last 10 years and we recently made the leap to partner together and bring our new shop to life.
How would you best describe your style and the items you sell? We are mid-century modern all the way, and mostly sell vintage furniture. We also sell all types of unique and eclectic home decor items. We are just now looking into specialty greeting cards, candles and other ephemera—all those little accents that are fun to give as gifts or put the finishing touches on a space with.
When was your first Junk in the Trunk Vintage Market? This past May.
And what is your favorite part about the event? Or a favorite memory? Our favorite part of JITT was revealing PAST to the masses. We’ve had this idea in our heads for such a long time, seeing it being received so well was empowering and inspired us to work on our brick-and-mortar shop, website and social media platforms this summer.
What’s your favorite place to get away in the summer? Since we’re working on shop renovations all summer, it’s been difficult to get away. But we all love spending time in San Diego or going to Pasadena to shop at the Rose Bowl. Everywhere we go, we always look for inspiration while fitting in time for vintage hunting! Our friends and family have become quite used to our pit-stops. 🙂
