“Everyone owns something that makes them feel good.” Understanding this all too well, Purcellville based vintage merchandiser and owner of Nostalgia Vintage Clothing and Antique Furniture, Silas Redd has created a must visit shop for apparel and home goods in Northern Virginia. “I want to steer clients to select flattering pieces that remind them of another time,” he says. The name of the store, Nostalgia, came to him because it is the very feeling he hopes to create when patrons visit his store. That said, even though the clothing and furniture on display through the store may bring the past to mind, Redd emphasizes that his merchandise is wearable and livable. “We don’t carry costume-y pieces.” He emphasizes, “My customers understand quality and they don’t mind wearing a unique piece to stand out.” In a previous life, Silas styled Richmond socialites while studying Fashion Merchandising at Virginia Commonwealth University. He later worked in retail doing visual merchandising for West Elm, Brooks Brothers and Macy’s. A walk through Nostalgia is something like a walk through a museum, with each piece carefully on display with a story to tell. He does accept vintage consignment.
