Name/Title: Jolyne Colburn Owner/Director of Rowdy Roddy Vintage

Launch date: Firstly in 2011, then moved to a bigger location 2013.

Inspiration for opening: Being a graphic designer from San Francisco, the move to Glasgow when I was 7 months pregnant wasn’t has hard as you would think. However, always having been a lover of vintage and design, I felt there was a lack of interesting clothes to buy for Roddy. I wanted something different. So the collection began. We started with vintage then grew to incorporate locally handmade items and special designers.

Merchandise source: Some of my favourite places are my secret vintage treasure troves from around the world!

But our curated collection of children designer clothes includes: Mini Rodini, Soft Gallery, Lapin and Me, Donna Wilson, Noe Zoe, Beau Loves, Indikidual, Mini Melissa, and Little Legs Baby Kilts.

Best selling item: I would say that we set ourselves apart with our vintage collection, so that is the most popular. Each item is pretty much one of a kind, so your little one can be very unique. Every piece is carefully inspected to ensure you only receive the best!

Your favorite item: We have this 2 piece suit made in Paris that is AMAZING. I hide it in the back because I am so attached to it. However, it is listed online, so someone might just snatch it up while I’m not looking.

Favorite store (other than your own): Located back home in the Bay Area of California, Mind Eye Vintage is a must stop for this mama! They carefully select each vintage item and are release them in collections. Everything is gorgeous and you won't find synthetic fabrics anywhere near this place.
