We, Emilie and Adam, started our small business in mid 2013, working from her house initially. Emilie had wanted to leave her job for a while, and I was just out of University, and it all began on a really small scale - sourcing items from the internet and trawling local charity shops for items we liked personally.
Soon, we'd outgrown Emilie's house, and took the plunge with a small office. This very soon became two offices as the business started to grow.
As the years went by, we moved to a warehouse unit to be able to house all of the clothes we were buying to sell on the website. We took on more staff and the business was growing so much more than we could ever have imagined!
It was a lot of hard work, very long hours but most importantly, we were enjoying it.
So now, after sending out in excess of 70k orders and saving over 100k items of clothing from landfill, back to the present day...
We've set up home together and have a beautiful 18 month old daughter!
We decided it was time to take a look at our work/life balance, and took the difficult decision to try and scale the business back to something smaller that we could possibly manage from home.
So here we are...let's see where Bloc Vintage goes from here....
