Redbird Vintage Box: Open for your Perusal

www.redbirdvintagebox.com
For the last 4 months Karen and I have been working on Redbird Vintage Box, a subscription box and online boutique that caters to women who love vintage clothing & accessories but hate having to do the work to find amazing things.  It has been an awesome, eye opening experience and we've learned so much about not only the business world, but also each other.

Over the last 4 months every little detail was discussed.  Different websites were tried out.  Lawyers and accountants were met with.  Marketing and packaging materials were looked at for weeks until we found the perfect items that conveyed the look we were wanting.  I'm embarrassed to admit how long it took us to decide on how our business cards should look.  Merchandise was found and flown in from all over the world.  It was then inspected, cleaned, hemmed, altered, photographed, measured and logged into various outlets.  We took a small amount of inventory and put it up in our shop.  People are free to purchase from the shop, but it's really there to show potential customers the types and quality of items we carry.  We will encourage them to request items they love for their box, which will take some of the mystery away but will help alleviate any uncertainty they feel about purchasing a "mystery" box.

Redbird Vintage Box is a labor of love.  Anyone who knows me can tell you that vintage clothing, accessories & decor have always been a part of my life and with my recent obsession with subscription boxes it just seemed natural to combine the two loves.  I'm thrilled to try out this new avenue to get items I adore out to new owners, people who will love it just as much or more than I do.

I am even more thrilled to be going on this journey with my baby sister, Karen.  Her style and fashion sense are spot on, she can find the funny in the worst situations and there isn't anyone else I would want for a partner.

We have assembled a great team of close friends and family who have been and will continue to give us really honest feedback on what we're doing well and what we can do better.  We're a new business and appreciate all of the constructive criticism we can get so if you think of or see a way that we can improve, please contact us via our Facebook page or at info@redbirdvintagebox.com.

Our site is www.redbirdvintagebox.com and while it is up right now for you to browse through, nothing will be available to purchase until September 25th at 10 am EST.  You're free (and encouraged) to go ahead and fill out a style profile so all you'll have to do on the 25th is grab one of the boxes.  We'll have a limited number of boxes available and if we're lucky enough that they sell out we'll be creating a waiting list and restocking within a week and a half.

You can follow us on PINTEREST to see what items we're currently loving.

You can check out items that will be making their way into the shop via our INSTAGRAM.
