On today’s show, we’re chatting with Meagan Svendsen, a Vintage Coach Bag Restorer & Collector. Meagan learned the love of vintage hunting and restoration from her mom who taught her every technique in the book. After losing her mom unexpectedly in 2021, and finding her first vintage Coach bag “in the wild” Meagan began collecting and restoring over 400 vintage Coach bags.  On this episode, we dive into the rich history of the Coach brand, including some background on Bonnie Cashin, the bags she designed, and the legacy that still holds today. Ultimately, Meagan loves vintage Coach because of the quality of the vintage leather, which is truly meant to last.

S7 Ep26 BLACK RABBIT VINTAGE: owner, Madelyn - on loving and restoring old things, recovering from a devastating fire, and the special stories attached to cherished garments.
Pre-Loved Podcast is a weekly vintage fashion interview show, with guests you’ll want to go thrifting with! For more Pre-Loved Podcast, subscribe to our Patreon! Today’s episode is with Madelyn of Black Rabbit Vintage, based out of Benton Park in St. Louis. Madelyn has long been a vintage lover – she loves restoring old things to their former glory and passing on stories associated with vintage garments.  She says she’s been sewing for as long as she was allowed to touch a machine, and since high school she knew she wanted to own her own space – maybe vintage, maybe vinyl, maybe old books? But now, 15 years later she does it all! We hear her whole story with opening Black Rabbit Vintage on today’s show. Tragically, in late June, around when we filmed this, Madelyn learned that Sk8 Libourious, an indoor skate park and community center in North City was on fire – the destruction of this space was devastating in its own right, but it was also where Madelyn stored a large amount of Black Rabbit Vintage’s back store. Luckily, her storage room did not fully burn in the fire and she was able to get a majority of my things out of the building, but it has been a long restoration and recovery journey.  A journey which we talk about on today’s show – I also want to flag that there is a GoFundMe page for Black Rabbit’s recovery efforts linked in the shownotes, if you’re inclined to help out another vintage-lover.  All this and more in today’s episode,  so let’s just dive right in! DISCUSSED IN THE EPISODE: [7:19] Madelyn grew up with a love of old things and church basement rummage sales, and we discuss her journey to owning a vintage store. [12:51] Taking part in pop-ups and markets across St. Louis. [19:52] Opening her shop in Benton Park.[22:34] Recovering from the fire at Sk8 Libourious, where Black Rabbit Vintage’s back stock was stored.[27:46] The recovery process to restore pieces damaged from the fire.[37:00] The incredible stories that go along with vintage garments.[43:26] Madelyn has a special love for vintage jewelry, and we chat about restoring it.[45:36] On personal style, and favorite pieces in Madelyn’s personal collection.
