Waiste Vintage Brighton Pop-Up Shop

Spilling over with bohemian fashions and lush hanging houseplants, Waiste Vintage is seriously on-trend. But while free-loving looks and botanicals have only grown on mainstream fashion in the past couple of years, there’s nothing faddy about this team’s love of Seventies style.

All flowing hair, floaty frocks and flares, the couple joined forces with Spiderplant founder Alice Sharville to launch their concept pop-up earlier this year, combining years of experience selling vintage online and plants at other local shops and events.

“It actually turned out that we were both planning to ask the other”, Oliver says of the partnership. “We’ve all been inspired by vintage shops in LA and Amsterdam, where they create more of an experience and the plants look amazing in the window.”
