In Aarhus in Denmark you’ll find a very special vintage store owned and run by Mette Marie Aaes Emery. There you will find the best quality of vintage from 1920th-1970th. You can tell that this is Mette’s passion by looking at the pictures but as an Art Conservator as well this is something she has great knowledge of.
I first discovered this treasure of vintage a couple of years ago when I noticed a Katja of Sweden dress for sale. A few days later and the dress was delivered nicely. After that I receive emails with lovely pictures of divine vintage for sale.
Mette started to collect when she was 18 years old but needed to sell out her collection in 2009. Hence, she started a web-shop (as you do!) and of course it all went well. In 2012 she opened her first shop in Aarhus. Due to her knowledge she had the opportunity to be part of the TV-program Skattejaegerne, which obviously must have been good marketing. Today, she runs an even larger shop at Klostergade in Aarhus.
Mette loves the beautyful artcraft with feminine details that rarely are produced nowadays. She gets inspired by her own collection of magazines for example Vogue and Le Chic Parisienne.
All washing, ironing, photo shooting and running the shop Mette does herself but with some support from her mother who is an expert in wedding dresses.
Mette has sold a few Katja of Sweden dresses:
“Katja of Sweden are unique in many ways and has a fantastic quality. I especially love her graphic design.”
