During a visit to Sydney in early 2018, Alex and Tara rediscovered the magic that is op-shopping. Following that fateful trip, visits to local op-shops became frequent and continued as they travelled throughout Europe and then moved across the ditch to Melbourne. With the hunt moving from second-hand shops to online, Alex’s passion for finding epic vintage tees began to grow.
Fast-forward a few years and Alex and Tara returned to NZ. With a wardrobe full of vintage finds, Alex began to wonder what it would be like to provide other vintage-lovers with accessible, affordable vintage.
A late-night discussion ensued and Planet Vintage was born in November 2020.
