I have traveled extensively – not only during my 20 year Naval Service career but also prior to and afterwards as well (Upon retiring from the Navy – I lived in Japan for 6 years). During these worldly travels I acquired many unique items for my home and collection. Also during these travels, I became an avid internet user and happened upon a lil’ known website called ‘AuctionWeb’ which later became eBay. I was hooked early on and have been an avid eBay’er for nearly 20 years now. Early in 2011 I began seeking a brick and mortar building to not only house my collection but to also retail them out – hence Vic’s Vintage was born.
My personal goal for my ‘Vic’s Vintage adventure’ is to enlighten customers as to the intricacies of seeking and procuring that ‘special piece’ for their home or collection. I strive for authenticity and provenance of each piece within my purview. I believe in the motto “each on teach one” and I strive to do that in my passion of collecting. Being in the retail business, I take it a step further by striving to not only pass my knowledge on but, to also facilitate a better understanding, within my expertise and surroundings, of vintage and antique collectibles. My ‘good day’ is meeting, greeting and interacting with my customers; sales come easily that way.
