OUR FIRST UK TRIP
SOME PIECES FROM OUR FIRST TRIP
A month before our first trip, we had no plan, we had no store and we had no clothes (to sell), we were just doing typical couple things. Until Julie had the idea of opening a pop-up store with vintage clothing. That changed everything.
There was not much time to find the right clothes. We searched for vintage markets, vintage stores, vintage wholesales.. We did a whole lot of research and then we found this Vintage Wholesale in Cardiff, we immediately made an appointment. Two weeks later we flew to Bristol and hopped on the bus to Cardiff.
It was a cold and rainy day, but nothing could f*ck up our thrift shopping mood as we were extremely excited to start our adventure. The first day we explored the city and we visited some vintage shops, we ate some shitty English food (sorry bruv's) and went to sleep.
The next day we took a taxi to the wholesale and stood there with our sweaty hands, not realizing what we started with, but full of excitement.
As we entered the building we were amazed/overwhelmed by the amount of clothes we saw. We didn't know where to start but with the help of Mai, Eddie and Adam we managed to dive in to the clothes and make our first selection (Adam's most famous quote is 'what are you after so i can get some bags ready for you'. We love this man). We bought 250 unique pieces, thinking they would last until the end of January... After the first week, we realized that was one of our most naïve moments ever.
