Vendor Spotlight ✦ Love & Heresy
Hi, My name is Kimberly and I’m the owner of Love & Heresy. I was born and raised in Los Angeles, California where I first developed a love for vintage clothing during my teen years in the late 90’s.
L.A. is a mecca for vintage clothing shops and I was fascinated by all the beautiful stores stocked full with colorful dresses, furry coats, fringe jackets and flared jeans. This was a city where anything goes and that included wild vintage clothing. I have always loved the feeling I get when I hold or wear a vintage piece and imagine the history behind it. I have said, if given a time machine, I would travel back in time to see the fashion…not forward.
With my home now in the foothills of Colorado, accompanied by my husband, children and furry loves, I felt a need to spice things up in Loveland (and my life) and turn my love for vintage clothing into a business. I absolutely love what I do! For me, there is nothing more therapeutic than working with beautiful little pieces of history. I even love that distinctive smell of “grandma’s closet” that a lot of real vintage clothes comes with. A good part of my collection these days comes from women who have entrusted me with their vintage clothing, items worn by their mothers and are sometimes hard to part with. This has made my job even more special, as I am taking a cherished item, giving it the love it deserves and finding a new home where its existence will hopefully be honored and will live for many more years to come.
One of my most prized vintage finds is a Victorian inspired 70’s lace wedding gown in perfect condition. I wore it for my wedding and felt like the most beautiful bride in the world. I’ve recently decided it is time for another lucky woman to feel the same on her wedding day and have added it to my store.
When shopping my booth, you will find vintage pieces from the 30’s through the 90’s. I offer many different styles of clothing as well as jewelry and accessories. Every item I sell is an item I have fallen in love with and get so excited when someone else falls in love too! As an added touch, I bless all my collection with Palo Santo so that when you purchase an item from me, it comes with only good loving vibes.
