Mrs. Depew Vintage is the amalgamation of the two best things on earth: sewing and vintage!
Mrs. Depew Vintage started quite by accident. I was raised in an antique shop and vintage has always been a big part of my life. When other kids were at school or playing with their friends, I was home-schooled and my free time was spent elbow deep in history with my mom, learning the difference between victorian and Edwardian, diamonds and fakes and meeting the most amazing and eccentric people you could imagine.
I had big plans for after college, and like many, learned the hard way that a degree doesn't mean instant job and success. Through a series of interesting events, I ended up following the love of my life to his assignment in Norway, and later losing my job when my employer went out of business. With too much time on my hands, Mrs. Depew Vintage was the natural result of my NEEDING to be busy, and NEEDING to sew. I went back to my roots, doing what my Mama taught me, and turned my passion into a business.
It has turned into the greatest, surprise success, and I'm one of the lucky few who can say that they have a great time at work every day. I love what I do and I hope that reflects in the patterns and vintage items that I provide to my customers.
