Our Story

Instant Vintage was founded by Poppy Harman and Andrew Whiteley in 2007. Fed up of the daily grind of London living, they quit their jobs in fashion retail management and manufacturing quality assurance in order to travel around South East Asia and as they unwound and opened their minds to exciting new possibilities a little acorn of an idea began to grow....

Everywhere they traveled they were bombarded with beautiful jewellery, stunning silks and exciting new opportunities to make their dreams of fashion design and production a reality. After several inspiring months away they returned home armed with new contacts and overflowing bags packed with beautiful pieces which they showcased at Portobello and Spitalfields markets in London.

The response was overwhelming and it soon became clear that Instant Vintage needed a new arena to expend and allow their brand to blossom.

Now a destination independent boutique with a feminine, eclectic feel, their first store is located in the centre of Bath where you will find an ever changing collection of unique and irresistible pieces. Sumptuous handmade silk clutch bags, feminine accessories and beautiful jewellery hand picked from around the world compliment their own label of unique vintage inspired clothing.

As they continue to evolve they have added another string to their bow with their on-line collection of eclectic clothing, unique jewellery and stunning accessories. This edited collection aims to spread the Instant Vintage word further afield and bring a little slice of their original dream to online shoppers around the world...
