3 Vintage Vendors We’re Totally Crushing On!
Our vintage game is white hot right now in store. Whether you’re seeking out throwback threads or something with the perfect patina for your pad, we have so much eye candy to sift through!
Get to know three vendors spanning from Dallas to Louisiana currently in store that are making us swoon. Their curated collections of batwing sleeve dresses, old oil painting and funky belts are bananas.
The lowdown: Hi, I’m Lori Virdure! Vinti is a curated vintage clothing and accessories company for a contemporary mind. The word ven(t)ē is defined as “the use of distinctive applied art to creatively express oneself and connect with others.” I used to search my maw maw’s closet at an early age. That honed my eye for quality style, but my limited resources birthed a deep passion for thrifting. I can treasure hunt for hours on end, all to find one piece and be the happiest girl in the world. Sharing that treasure with others is so fulfilling!
Currently at Flea Style: Gauzy romantic dresses, white lacy numbers, floral showstoppers.
Currently listening to: Intentional by Travis Greene
Dream dinner guest: The Olsen twins to discuss their amazing effortless style and business acumen.
Favorite quote: “Whatever you feed, will live. Whatever you do not will die.”
Dream vacation destination: The South of France

GEORGIA MAE VINTAGE
The lowdown: Hi, I’m Susan Compton! My shop is a curated collection of vintage fashion and home décor from oil paintings and brass figurines to designer clothing and belts.
Currently at Flea Style: Tons of aged brass decor, floral oil paintings, pretty summer dresses, straw bags.
Hopes for your business? I plan to retire from my analytical “day job” in the next year. I would like for Georgia Mae to turn into a more full-time adventure and I would also love to travel the U.S. in search for treasures.
Something only your bestie knows about you? I appeared on Family Feud with my family. We won the game but sadly lost in the bonus round.
Beach or mountains? Beach all the way!
Currently listening to: Oldies always, especially anything from the 70s.
Dream dinner guest: Tim Gunn. I think we could be best friends and dish about fashion and design.
