About Vintage PE

Where we came from

Vintage PE was started under the name of Decorlicious in 2008.  Carmen initially made décor items and restored antique furniture.  Without a premises, Decorlicious started trading at various markets in the Eastern Cape.

The focus of the business then changed to specialise in selling original vintage handbags. The business slowly grew to incorporate vintage clothing and accessories.  Becoming a full time venture in 2011, its first shop opened in the Memory Lane Coffee Shop.  After 6 months, the current shop opened in Westbourne Road. The shop is now a treasure trove of Vintage Clothing, Shoes, Hats, Handbags, Antique Jewellery etc. for both ladies and men.   All the clothes are laundered and all other items are cleaned to perfection.

Carmen takes pride in finding unique items  for the shop, and new stock is unpacked in the shop daily.  The customer base has extended to East London.  Pop Up Shops are held at the Roxy Coffee Shop in EL every 2 to 3 months.  Look under EVENTS to find the relevant dates.

The Grahamstown Festival is a highlight on the Calendar for Vintage PE.  Find the stall at the Village Green, Tent 1.

If you’re visiting Port Elizabeth a stop at Vintage PE is a must!
