re:New – Borough Vintage
Many believe that the best vintage resources are found fashion cities likes New York, Paris or Milan. But it’s also possible to find great relics from the past – in cities such as: St. Louis, Missouri. Owner, Dawna Sturdivant, is a former retail buyer and product development manager who has a knack for store merchandising and vintage clothing selection. This background has helped Borough Vintage become an underground resource for designers, theatre managers, and fashion savvy women around the globe.
