WHY ADDING VINTAGE ACCESSORIES INTO YOUR RETAIL STORE MAY BE RIGHT FOR YOU & YOUR CUSTOMER
We all know the retail landscape is changing rapidly, and the question of how to set yourself apart to increase customer traffic has never been more relevant. Shoppers are moving toward non-traditional retail outlets in droves. Traditional brick and mortar shops are looking to diversify their merchandise mix to add allure to their shops and that which encourages shoppers to stop in and return regularly. The competition to be noticed in a world of shrinking attention spans and decreasing customer loyalty has never been more fierce. So, why vintage accessories? This category is a great place to start because adding these coveted items is a unique and exclusive way to refresh your merchandise and differentiate your brand in an ever-changing market.

THE VINTAGE ADVANTAGE
UNIQUE SHOPPING EXPERIENCE
Showcasing high-end vintage accessories in your store gives your customers an exclusive shopping experience by allowing them the opportunity to purchase one-of-a-kind or rare accessories that others won't have! This is also a great way to increase word-of-mouth marketing for your store just by your customers’ friends asking where they found something so unique.
Many vintage accessories are made to withstand the test of time with high quality production and manufacturing techniques such as gold filled, triple 24k gold plating, solid sterling silver, and authentic gemstones resulting in pieces of superior quality.
Vintage appeals to the customer who values sustainable fashion. Buying vintage is one way to personally reduce your environmental impact on this earth and by carrying vintage in your store encourages this movement while broadening your customer base.
