STORIES BEHIND THINGS VINTAGE CHALLENGE

We met up with Jemma and Ella, the two girls running Stories Behind Things. They have a great passion for finding unique gems in vintage stores and charity shops. As Ella explained:

“I always tell people that you can leave me in second hand store for 24h and I will be happy because I love rooting around and finding things. It is like, you find things that are already part of you and that you were missing. Sounds silly but that is where the name ‘Stories Behind Things’ came from. Every single thing in that shop has a story behind it and you kind of become a part of the story of the item. I think that is so nice.”

We love their excitement. But we still had one question: “Can you wear vintage for all kinds of occasions?” We challenged the girls to prove it in this video.

Of course we couldn’t resist engaging in a long conversation with Ella and Jemma about fashion industry, their favourite stores and more. So stay tuned for an interview with them on What’s Your Legacy.
