VINTAGE MATTERS – ONE YEAR ON!
Here we are – October 2016 – one year on from our online launch and first pop up at West Elm, London!
What an amazing year it has been and we thought we would share some of the many highlights.
We have travelled far and wide searching for unique pieces to bring to your home or workplace and met many amazing people along the way, who are all as passionate about vintage, as we are.
West Elm have kindly hosted 5 pop up events for us, which have been extremely successful, giving us great brand exposure on Tottenham Court Road in London and we now have customers returning to see what new finds we have.
Among the many pieces we have sold there, one was a scientific instrument that a gentleman bought to train his performing fleas on…
And just last week, someone bought a lovely cast iron window mirror for the garden, solely for the use by William – the pet peacock!
We are back at West Elm for a Christmas pop up event, 16th -18th December.
Our vintage letters and letter lights continue to be hugely popular, as people really connect with them. We have over 100 letters in stock and more on the way.
If you are after a specific letter, drop us an email at [email protected] and we can send images, costs and dimensions of those that are currently being reconditioned, that are not yet online.
In April 2016, we were delighted to have our home featured in “25 Beautiful Homes”, which has become an ever evolving showcase of product for Vintage Matters.

We have been active in the commercial sector too, including a brief to supply vintage pieces of furniture and accessories to a new office in Old Street, London, which resulted in a great feature in INEX Magazine.
We have been busy posting and tweeting on various social media channels and now have over 700 followers on Instagram and over 500 on Twitter, along with a growing presence on Facebook, Pinterest and G+
Follow us on any of the above channels, to see what new stock we have coming in and where we are on our travels.
Our mailing list is growing rapidly too and you can sign up quickly and easily on our home page.
Currently, we are searching for a retail space in South East London, to open our first store which we are very excited about and we are out in the markets sourcing some special pieces for Christmas.
We would like to say a huge THANK YOU to all our customers and followers for your support and we look forward to an exciting year ahead!
