First of all, I just want to say how honored I feel to be sharing my story with you all today!
A collector of antiques herself, my mother always inspired my adoration for the older things, so naturally my love for vintage heirlooms and rusty details has forever been embedded in my heart. From a very young age, long before Macklemore inspired tons of teens to go thrifting with his hit song "Thrift Shop," you would find me searching up and down the aisles looking for unique hand-me-downs. Growing up, I was always the go-to friend for planning and decorating events. Birthdays turned into Quinces and later became Weddings. After a while of collecting pieces just-for-fun, and my natural knack for putting events together, the idea of owning a rental company felt like the perfect fit!
When I first started, I was young (and broke). Family and friends think it’s a great idea to start your own biz and show support, but they always suggest you get “a real job”. You know, just in case? But I was fearless, and in pursuit of something bigger than myself! One thing I knew for sure is that I wasn’t going to start my company having debt. So, I sold my car; and the very next day, I opened my first business account. The rest is vintage, literally!
Mi Vintage began in 2012, inside a humble storage room which quickly multiplied to two, then three; until it grew big enough for us to fill our very first warehouse! Today, we have a 5,000 square foot showroom full of one-of-a-kind pieces available for rent!
We're surely not where we want to be just yet, but we're on our way, and excited for what's to come!
MEET LIZ, LA CHICA BEHIND IT ALL.
I hope that our collection inspires you for the incredible journey ahead!
Our pieces are merely tools to help bring your vision to life, thank you for choosing our collection to do so. It is truly a blessing that I get to share my passion with clients daily, collecting stunning pieces, making friends + memories along the way.
