ABOUT US

New Vintage Handbags

Our Story

New Vintage began in 2016 when an artful spirit collided with an entrepreneurial mind. Candace Easdale and Stephanie Ponder had been friends for many years and met to catch up at a small coffee shop in Las Vegas, Nevada. Stephanie had a Louis Vuitton with her, well-loved and artfully restored. Candace thought it was a fantastic way to bring preloved pieces back to life and give them a second chance to tell a brand new story. The following week, Candace had a business license, and Stephanie was dolling up bags. What started as a fun hobby quickly developed into an overnight sensation.
