Beyond Retro offers hand-picked vintage at wholesale for first time
Vintage clothing retailer Beyond Retro is offering a range of handpicked vintage clothing, normally sold in its stores in London - which are currently unable to open due to the pandemic - direct to retailers at wholesale prices for the first time.
Leveraging an international team of trend forecasters and product pickers, the brand’s vintage offering is now available to vintage sellers and retailers of any size to shop from a huge range of curated pieces from under £5 per item.
With movement limited in lockdown, customers can access the product via the Beyond Retro wholesale website, boxed and ready for sale. Online appointments can also be made.
Untouched by customers, never having reached the shop floor, it’s a rare opportunity for vintage resellers and businesses looking for unique, handpicked clothing from many different eras, styles and trends, with a focus on American and European vintage grades.
Global Managing Director of Beyond Retro, Kate Peters, said: “Our expertise, which we’ve honed over the last two decades, means we pick the best vintage, at scale, delivering on trend products for our discerning customers.
“Now with even more people trying to be more conscious in their consumption, we’re thrilled with the boom in vintage retailers and resellers, and want to contribute our knowledge and infrastructure to help support these businesses in lockdown. Together we can encourage more people to shop sustainably and make preloved a part of their wardrobe.”
