It was from Dee Dee O’Connell, the founder of Dee Dee’s Vintage. And after my blushes died down, I recalled the information advice clinic where we met. In particular I remember being impressed about how much thought Dee Dee had already given to her business idea, and how resourceful she had been.
Dee Dee didn’t have the delightful logo above at the time, or her partner Ian White. But I was confident she would be successful, with her enthusiasm and expert knowledge of the vintage clothing market place, and her entrepreneurial spirit.
I get a lovely warm glow from being a small part of our success stories.
Below is the blurb from their website www.deedeesvintage.com:
Dee Dee’s Vintage is a brand new online shop, specialising in Americana and classic British vintage clothing. We began life back in June ‘09 as a stall at the Vintage Pop-Up Market at Brick Lane, East London. We can now be found at selected vintage fairs, markets and festivals all over the UK. Check out our blog for the latest updates on our events.
We’re based at The Print House in Dalston, East London – home of Dalston Roof Park and Café Oto.
