Get 2 Know A Vintage Dealer on Instagram
Vintage traders have been treating fans to rare personal and professional insights in a month-long Instagram themed daily posting challenge.
#AprilGet2KnowAVintageDealer was the brainchild Wish Vintage from Ashford, Kent, whose owner wrote: “Over the years I’ve met loads of fantastic dealers at fairs across the country. Having done no fairs of late I’d like to touch base with dealers New (sic) and old and see what they’re selling, where they’re selling and who they are! It’s a chance for us to interact and inspire each other.”
At the time of writing the hashtag has been used nearly 1,500 times, with dealers offering expert advice and interior inspiration on daily themes including “favourite place to buy”, “my home” and the covetable “my collection”, for which Hove’s Bobby & Dandy’s owner Donna Grimaldi shared her clowder* of Siamese cats and Pineapple Retro set storage goals with a pretty pastel rainbow shelfie.
Look out for more insider tips in the upcoming “how to buy vintage”, “vintage fairs” and “future trends” themes or get involved by inviting the Insta community to peek through the keyhole of your vintage business.
