Introducing Megan Dorsey: Vintage Shop Owner
I’ve always had a love for old things. Every time I would visit my grandmothers house, she would let me go through her vintage clothes, purses and jewelry. I could play in it for hours and it would only feel like minutes… Megan Dorsey, Vintage Shop Owner
This beautiful shop owner has turned her love of antique things into a fully-functioning and thriving business and with her determination, she’s created Seventh Vintage:
Even though Megan’s grandmother is now watching her from up above, we know that she’d be proud of her granddaughter for all that she’s accomplished. I took a look at her shop and this caught my eye:
Apparently, Megan loves attention to detail…and so do I.
I ran across Etsy.com by happenstance. I actually don’t remember exactly how but I’m glad I did. I remember the first thing I sold. An antique cotton lace dress made in France. I remember the price too… and instant 30 bucks. I liked how it made me feel. I liked that people loved the things I picked out and curated and I loved their positive feedback. I began to make jewelry, one of my other passions and that jumped off better than I expected. I was getting messages, business proposals and most of all great customer feedback. That was when I knew I was a business woman. I do this because it makes me feel good… because I want for African American people to see themselves in a different light. Not always following fleeting trends. The style back in the day was timeless and classy. I religiously Google pictures of African Americans from the 1900’s to 1960’s because the men and women looked so classy and I want us to get back to that. — Megan
