Vintage Kitty are Retro and Vintage costume jewellery and accessories specialists. They have a fabulous and exciting assortment of vintage, retro and antique jewellery; necklaces, parures (jewellery sets), rings, bracelets, bangles, brooches, handbags, clothing, collectibles and more.

Here Digger talks to Jennifer Rigby-Allen about her thriving Retro and Vintage jewellery business which she runs from home.

 


Digger: Can you please tell us about your and Nigel's backgrounds?

Jennifer: My background was working as a personal assistant in various companies.  All the time I have been collecting and buying vintage jewellery, clothing and accessories.  I have a very large collection of vintage powder compacts as well as a huge collection of jewellery.  Nigelís background is in IT, he developed the website but has nothing to do with the day-to-day running. 

Digger: And what about your passion for Vintage?

Jennifer: My passion for vintage really stems from watching old black and white movies as a teenager and admiring the fabulous outfits and jewellery that the famous film stars wore.

Digger: You have a big web presence and a number of websites - can you tell us how the Kitty group of websites evolved?

Jennifer: We have a lot of different websites to cover all different types of  costume jewellery but the reality is that
www.vintagekitty.co.uk
is our main central site and that everything that is available through our satellite sites are available through Vintage Kitty.

Digger: What does The Internet mean to your business and where are your customers coming from?

Jennifer: The Internet means that we have a window to the world and people have a window to us.  The internet means freedom to connect between ourselves and people with the same interests and taste.  I have customers from all over the world; from the USA, Australia, Europe, Asia and most importantly, the UK.

 

 


Digger: What sort of comments do you get from customers?

Jennifer: Amazing customer service, great photos, accurate descriptions, carefully wrapped and packed, fabulous products, very pleased, absolutely thrilled, you name it, they say it!!

Digger: What are the most enjoyable aspects of what you do?
 
Jennifer: Enjoyable aspects are getting really positive feedback from my customers. I am absolutely thrilled when they email me to let me know how pleased they are with their purchases. I regularly receive comments and even photographs of people wearing what they have bought.    Also sourcing the items are good fun as well. I go to sales, antique fairs, auctions, boots and second hand shops; Iím always on the lookout. You never know what you are going to find and itís really good fun!
 


Digger: Why is Retro and Vintage such a big thing for so many people?

Jennifer: The reason I think that retro and vintage is quite big is that it is unique, different and also makes people stand out from the crowd. Also it's very affordable.

Digger: What are the most popular items?

Jennifer: It varies, but the most popular items are necklaces. Lots of men buy them for their wives/girlfriends because they are guaranteed to fit them.  Also it does depend upon what is on trend and last year I sold more brooches than anything.

Digger: What plans do you have for the future for 'Kitty'?

Jennifer: We plan to open a separate shop from VK to allow people to sell their vintage stuff Ė like a vintage emporium.
