Lune Vintage was created by Jill Munro in 2007, after 5 years of selling vintage, up-cycled and handmade work in local antiques malls, craft shows, farmers markets, and through Jill's country cottage shop, The Vintage Cottage.
The brand expanded early 2008 to co-operate it's first independent bricks and mortar shop early 2009 on Rathgar Ave off of South Osborne in Winnipeg, MB, Canada. Jill styled and renovated the former space, resurfacing and painting floors, walls, and exterior surfaces. The shop initially featured vintage clothing, accessories, housewares and furniture.
It was there that Jill developed Love Lune brand of vintage hand dyed, silk screened slip dresses. She began organizing craft revival workshops open to the public and featuring local artisans within the vintage shop. The goal was to marry her love of vintage with an ongoing desire to play and create.
In October 2009, Jill Munro collaborated with local seamstress, knitter and artisan Melanie Wesley of Dizzy Dame. With a common aesthetic, drive and desire to create and promote the craft revival, they run Studio Lune in the heart of Winnipeg's historic Exchange District.
Fall of '09 saw the open of www.studiolune.com where local and international customers can browse a variety of vintage and handmade goods from the Studio Lune boutique. Studio Lune is open locally to the public during special events, workshops, and during the 1st and 3rd Friday of each month (noon - 5pm).
Studio Lune is proud to feature work from a collection of talented local artisans.
We continue to welcome local crafters and artists to share their work at the studio, email us if you are interested in contributing.
Lune Vintage continues to buy and sell vintage to wear, live with and enjoy through both Studio Lune and the Lune Vintage Etsy shop. If you have vintage you'd like us to take a look at, email us to set up an appointment.
Local Workshops in 2009 were a treat! Look for the Studio Lune Winter 2010 workshop schedule come January 1st. We're all looking forward to a great new decade for Lune!
