our philosophy

BLK MKT Vintage is a curated love story. Our motivation to build a collection that mirrors multifarious black cultural expression is rooted in our love for black people, black culture and our own lived experiences. We approach our work as cultural historians and encourage you to join us in bringing history/antiquity into our everyday lives.

Collecting While BLK

collecting while blk is a digital dialogue about the black folks' relationships with/to vintage curiosities and artifacts. one of the most profound aspects of our work with vintage is the abundance of stories being shared - stories by the items, their owners, our memories of them and their meanings in a contemporary context. blk mkt vintage operates with a fundamental belief that black storytelling is paramount, so we asked a few friends and fellow-collectors to talk about black vintage from their own perspectives and lived experiences.
