Wendy and Lisa started their business www.vintagevibe.co.uk in 2008. They are cousins and Vintagevibe is very much a family affair, now they have 4 people on the payroll all female, three of whom are family.
Wendy began with a shop in Tunbridge Wells called ‘Back with a Vengeance’ selling bedroom furniture, mirrors lighting and home accessories. She decided it would be great to expand but couldn’t afford to get another shop so, with the help of Lisa, they embarked online. The problem was Wendy couldn’t even turn a computer on and Lisa hadn’t a clue how to list products online, so they had a steep learning curve. Lisa worked as a bursar so was good with accounts, complementing Wendy’s creative side and contacts within the antiques and interiors industry. They created their own website and have gone from strength to strength with sourcing unusual quirky stuff at great prices and offering good customer service as their goals. In 2016 they moved from a warehouse to their showroom at The Hop Farm in Paddock Wood Kent.
Both women are proud of what they have achieved and would love you to visit them where they will put the kettle on…..
