WHAT IS THE VINTAGE POST?

Trish Hunter, founder of The Vintage Post,  created the blog Trish Hunter Finds in 2008 as a personal blog.
As much as she loved the brand, she wanted to create something bigger and broader than her personal blog could offer.
Instead of the main focus being on on her, she wanted it to be on vintage.
Trish wanted to teach, to inspire, to allow readers to discover the wonderful world of vintage and to be able to feel more connected to what she did.

The re-brand was important.

So what is The Vintage Post?

TVP is the website where you can find important, interesting, informative, and insightful information whether you’re a buyer, seller, or admirer of vintage including…

PLACES:

Used PTY LTD Fitzroy Industrial vintage shop

If you have a vintage shop, vintage blog, or are a vintage shopper, you need to know about this.

Here you can search for what items you’re chasing, or what area you are visiting, and you’ll be shown possible shops to browse.  Perhaps you’re organising a vintage shopping day and not sure where to start, this is where you start.
However… this directory is no normal directory.  TVP places is personal.
We chat one on one with the shop owners and learn about their passion – their store.

The directory is interactive.  The shop & blog owners can actually login and update their page with tons of news, photos, interviews, and information about their store.  So it’s forever changing, and always interesting.

All places are heavily photo based so you can really get a feel of where you are shopping.

Places offer an in depth view of the vintage shops of Melbourne and beyond so you can plan your day out!

View our FAQ for further information about getting your place put on the map.
Or get straight into it and list it by creating an account on the right hand side of the places page.

POSTS:

Daily articles or ‘Posts’ will be published here for your daily dose of vintage.
Here you can learn about all sorts of things like vintage designers, how to restore furniture, get your vintage shopping tips, learn how to get your best sales result when when selling, how to take better photos, and more.

There will be articles for buyers, sellers, collectors and everyone in between.

TRISH HUNTER BLOG:

This wouldn’t be brought to you by Trish Hunter if there wasn’t that personal touch about Trish’s day to day life like her old blog Trish Hunter Finds was.
You can still follow her vintage outfit posts, where she’s going, what she’s doing, reviews, vintage finds, and more. She is by no means disappearing now that TVP is live, she’s just a small part of something much bigger.
