There’s a certain amount of risk that comes with diving into a new venture, no matter how excited you are about it. Peter and Scarlett, the duo behind Adverts Vintage, know this firsthand. Just over two years ago, they left the security of steady employment to dive into the vintage furniture industry.

Welcoming and warm, Peter and Scarlett were happy to talk shop and divulge what they’ve learned along the way
