By Retro

Grandma Vintage

Shop
Save
After having worked as Mavi Jeans’ visual merchandiser, Gizem Saluvan changed some things in her life and decided to open Grandma Vintage. In her shop you’ll find the accumulation of her regular visits to local markets and her international trips, including clothing, shoes, bags and accessories, as well as home decoration items and furniture. You’ll be sure to discover something good, because Gizem never buys anything she wouldn’t wear or use herself.
