love local | vintage lover

Welcome back to my second Love Local post! This series is to bring to light all the lovely things/people that can be found locally here in South Africa.

This installment is quite an interesting one for me because I have followed Vintage Lover for about 2 years before meeting the lovely Janece at a market – it was kind of a fan girl moment for me because I appreciate so much about her page, let me elaborate.

Vintage Lover  is basically a trader of vintage clothing (some new/some socond hand) and accessories, Janece trades at markets, posts outfits for sale on her page as well as hosts an Open Closet at her house where she transforms her home into the coolest vintage stop around she has cupcakes, fizzers and old school music playing. Her attention to detail is what I appreciate so much from her, as a graphic designer I really enjoy watching someone form a brand so distinctive that you can spot what the brand is a mile away, Janece does this to the T – all her outfit posts are graded the same way, have the same background and same font, when she packages your goodies you get a fizzer in a neat little parcel whether she posts it to you or you buy it from a market she cares about you and wants you to enjoy your shopping experience.

I recently went to one of the Open Closet’s and have a look at the loveliness
