I spent some hours in the shop myself, talking with Jenny, taking pictures, looking at the vintage pearls, she has got in this new little shops. There is stuff all over the place. She is still organizing the shop even though she has been working eighteen hours a day the last two months. Yes, you`ve been reading correctly, Jenny is actually a teacher at the French school René Cassin in Oslo which is located nearby her shop and has been working there for years but she found out that she had to do something about her passion for vintage wears. Opening this shop is for her the realisation of a thirty year dream, isn`t it fantastic?  Well, I though I’d mention this fact because it takes a lot of courage, a lot of time, a lot of engagement, a lot of love to do that but you get also so much self- confidence. Working on a dream like that can bring much satisfaction and makes you feel so much better about yourself. To achieve that dream, she has been buying vintage wears from USA, Italy, France among many other places.
Today I have also the pleasure to inform you guys that even though she has already opened the shop for a short while ago, she will have an official opening event august 31th. She will post this invitation for it with more info about it on Facebook later on closer to the date.
Jenny has got a lot of energy, while she is stressing around trying to show me some new vintage goodies, she talked about her thoughts. One of the things she mentioned was the fact that, today people and especially the younger generation are learning through our society and lifestyle what she calls ” throw away and buy new”. Here again she is thinking about recycling, our planet as well as our mentality.
More about her ideology: She is very concerned about good old handcraft traditions like the tailors, hat makers,the  shoe makers, the embroiders that have been done for hundreds of years. She buys, for example, buttons from all over the world, from football buttons from England to china buttons from France. She told me that when she purchase clothes and doesn’t like the buttons, she sews new one`s to get the clothes looking more personalized and the way she likes.
By the way, she is also offering sewing and tailoring services through a very good and charming tailor lady that really does a fantastic job. I`ve tried her services when I bought a jacket from Jenny`s shop.
Clothing tip: A human will be unique in it`s own clothing combination, today is everything allowed as long as it`s conducted. Remember all humans create their own style and this is important is to make us feel well and confident in ourselves.
And now some new pictures:
