The idea of Hen and Chic vintage started in February of 2010, when Bryan invited Alexandra and friends over for drinks. While Alexandra was drinking her 7 and 7, she looked around and wondered why there was a bar in the living room and mirrored beer signs on the wall. Had she entered a bar and forgot to pay a cover? No, she was in her new boyfriend’s abode. What did she expect, he was after all, a bachelor with a bachelor sense of style, albeit bad style. If this relationship was going to progress, Alexandra needed to start nudging, gently, of course.
The seed was planted, and now it has started to blossom
So, it began in May 2010, Memorial Day weekend. While everyone was enjoying fun in the sun, Bryan and Alexandra were trudging through their first project. This first project was revitalizing an old 1970s china cabinet. After much work and sweat, the end project was beautiful. This got them thinking, “hey we can do this more often, it’s fun”. The seed was planted, and now it has started to blossom.
