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.

Marilyn - Artist

Hi, my name is Marilyn. I have always been drawn to painting and color since I was a child, from painting on the walls to shoes, then eventually canvas. I am formally trained at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA. When I'm not painting at New Vintage, I like to play video games with my boyfriend, jam out to music, and watch every Disney film available online. I am a cat mom and I have an adorable chubby black and white cat named Panda. He is my baby, and you can find me cuddling him 24/7. coloring since I was 5, my grandma keeps a scrapbook of all of my drawings that is as thick as a phone book -my inspirations to look at are tina.yu.artist on instagram and pernilleorum on instagram and soeymilk on instagram -current favorite Disney movie is Soul. It made me bawl my eyes out -what im jamming out to is edm, kpop, pop and r&b -I hope to do a tour of Asia and skydive before I die.
