My name is Mary, and I started The Block Vintage in 2009 as an Etsy store where I sold, and still sell, vintage clothes. Over the years, I became more passionate about keeping clothes out of landfills, no matter the age, and getting as much use of them as possible. I expanded my online platforms to include sales of non-vintage items, as well as hard goods, and went from only selling on Etsy to selling on Etsy, Poshmark, eBay, Depop and Grailed.
Then in 2020, I was approached by my best friend with an opportunity to become a partner at a vintage and handmade mall she was opening with her mother. I jumped at the chance, and now the three of us own Trunkshow in Raleigh, NC, where myself and over 40 others sell vintage and handmade items. I still hold a 9-5 office job, and my work for Trunkshow is largely behind the scenes, but you can find me working there some weekends. I feel so lucky to be even a small part of this dream with two of my favorite women! Please come see us at 1526 Wake Forest Road.
