About

Our story from our founder

VintageGen is all about finding authentic vintage items in great condition and selling them to people that appreciate them.

The idea of VintageGen started in 2016 after my mother took a trip to California to visit my aging grandparents. My mother helped them to sell their house and move into a care facility.

A part of the moving process meant that my mother went through all her parents’ belongings to determine what to keep, what to sell and what to donate. At the end of this project, my mother was overwhelmed by the belongings she had inherited — vintage items in excellent condition.

A few items she wanted to keep, a few she gave to my siblings and me… but what was she supposed to do with rest?

A similar situation happened with my mother’s friend who had a small home full of vintage items from relatives who had passed. Like my mother, she didn’t know what to do with it all.
A pattern emerged among my mother’s contemporaries, and so did an idea — VintageGen.

As generations age, they leave behind a ton of vintage items. Some of these items are in great condition, especially for their age. Many of these items come from an era of quality workmanship and are still appreciated by the modern generation.

“Our vintage and antique finds are authentic, and you’ll love them as much as we do. Plus, we make sure our prices are competitive.”— Rachael, founder

How we define “vintage”

All of our items are from 1995 or before. Most items pre-date 1990.

We sell many antiques as well. We research the items we sell and interview the people who previously owned them to provide you accurate information associated with its time period.  The information we provide is considered a best effort.

To find information about a product’s time period, look for the word “Circa” on the product page.

One-of-a-kind finds that you’ll love

What we curate is constantly changing, so you’ll always find something new.  Most items only come in a quantity of one (1), so when you find something you like, we recommend snatching it up before it’s gone.  We love what we find, and we know you will too.
