Vintage Vision : ABERGAVENNY


Well, who are we?

We're a group of women who have developed a social enterprise centred on a vintage clothes shop! We range in ages from early 20s to more than that - and some are almost (but not quite) antique! We're from a range of backgrounds and originate from all over the UK but are now living in Abergavenny and the surrounding area.
We all volunteer in the shop, which is the ideal place to meet new friends. Some volunteers are in the shop for a couple of hours a few times a month, those with more time on their hands volunteer every week, but all agree it is a fun and rewarding place to be. Some of the volunteers know a lot about vintage clothes, some know very little but are learning fast.

What we do and how we do it is a little more difficult to explain....

  • Source vintage clothes from individual donations;
  • teach women to sew, fix, remodel and love vintage clothes;
  • hold fashion shows to remind us all how great vintage clothes look;
  • run workshops with schools and colleges on vintage fashion;
  • offer work experience to women who want to go back to work;
