The Finders01 Sep | fashion | Share
The newest store on the city block is The Finders, a collaboration space that brings together Heaven Vintage, Vintage Stallion, Freya Flavell and Hiatus Store. Impressively, this team came together with the store in just two and a half weeks. They have created a space that is full of vintage and second-hand gems with pieces to suit your unique style.
We sat down with the wonderful owners who make up this collab, Bec, Hayleigh, Freya and Linda.
This store was born out of COVID-19. Bec tells us that her store, Vintage Stallion, was going really well prior to the pandemic, but to ensure longevity in a post-COVID world meant that she had to explore options for reopening. In an opportune way that Hobart can sometimes be, she connected with Hayleigh, Freya and Linda to create The Finders.
Hayleigh, owner of the Re-Loved Market in Battery Point, started her store Hiatus Store in the peak of the pandemic as a way to sell goods online.
‘I love that everything I want I can get second-hand. This changes the way you consume clothes, the way you buy things and then the way that you discard of clothing. I love being able to be part of this as a business owner’ | says Hayleigh.
‘I love the history in second-hand clothing. It is a trip back in time’ | says Freya.
‘We can be really lucky with pieces. Linda and I just came upon items from 1968 through to 1986, that were from a store up north, that have been so beautifully preserved in storage’ | says Freya.
