Candace and Stephanie (the founders of New Vintage) met to catch up over a friendly cup of coffee in 2016. Stephanie had this crazy idea of customizing her old, designer handbags that were taking up space in her closet. She wanted to vamp her handbags up with leather needlework and fun paint designs. Steph showed Candace her creation at the local coffee joint and Candace, who is always on point with her fashion sense, proposed turning Stephanie's hobby into a fun side job. With Candace's entrepreneurial drive and Stephanie's quick decision making, by the next weeks' end, the blonde duo were in business together.
Living under the bright lights of Las Vegas where women’s closets are full of forgotten gems, friends of Candace and Steph’s were lining up to bring new life into their handbags. The overnight sensation went from a "fun side job" to a full-time passion in the blink of an eye. What started in their homes, quickly expanded into office space right off the Las Vegas strip. With Candace’s savvy business sense and Steph’s crafty hands, New Vintage would be at the forefront of a unique new trend of designer customizations and personal sustainability across the country.
