Greetings Earthlings, Azil here. Haley and I had another rooftop photo-shoot. It was a beautiful, warm, September evening, and I had the urge to shoot.

Vintage Heart is the brain-child of two kooky, vintage-loving, jewelry obsessed, like-minded girls from Toronto, Canada who came together when they were each desperately seeking a roommate.

Between Allison's knack for vintage-hunting and Azil's fantastic jewelry-making skills, Vintage Heart was born. The VH girls are currently working on building their online store as well as turning their Penthouse apartment in the west end into a cozy, trinket-filled nest of creativity!
