"you have fans hidden in far corners"

was the response i received once the news about vintage connection's closing reached the public. it was really nice to hear, because deep in the heart of this vintage world i created i know vintage connection was a true success. not only in my own eyes, but in the eyes of others.
the choice i made to move away from vintage connection's brick and mortar location came when i realized there were other avenues this venture awarded me the opportunity to do. for the moment the best decision i made was to pursue these other adventures and see just where the wind takes me. i hope you respect this decision i have made and will continue to follow my journey.
i would like to leave you with the idea that this doesn't necessarily mean vintage connection is ending for good, but take comfort in thoughts that bits and pieces of it may pop up somewhere else. keep a look out, because you never know!

here is the press release of vintage connection's closing that daily candy so tastefully sent out this morning:


Vintage Connection
What: Since Heather Waity is closing her beloved little shop at the end of the month, she’s offering 50 percent off all vintage (reg. $5-$125), starting this week.
Why: Snatch up the shoes while they last.
When: Sat., 11 a.m.-7 p.m.; Sun., 11 a.m.-6 p.m.
Where: 701 S. Ninth St. (267-528-1625).

the store will be open until june, so go and take advantage of all the discounts! if you've never been, please go before it's closing!

in the weeks ahead i will highlight some of my favorite moments and memories from my 2.5 year journey with vintage connection. hope you enjoy!

Oh I'm so sad! I don't live in the city, but I have tried to come in whenever I'm in the area (sometimes I get there right after closing Oops!) I have the best yellow dress (formally a nightgown?) that I love from your store! Thanks for providing great vintage for Philly!

I used to stop into vintage connection every few weeks to look around - it was on my walk home from work. Now I live in Atlanta, and I can honestly say it one of the things I miss most about Philadelphia. It is such a well-edited shop, and I wish you good luck in the future.
