Meet Heather Oliphant, the woman behind Art of Vintage.
Heather’s love of the uniquely vintage began with her father, Kenny. Kenny always saw the best in old clutter and was determined to bring new life to items ranging from a 1946 homemade snow plane to a 1927 #15 Caterpillar.
Kenny’s love of refurbishing old items has clearly been passed down to Heather as she continues to fill Art of Vintage with authentic pieces of Canadiana, saving so many beautiful items from the typical fate of the landfill.
Perhaps Heather’s favorite part of this family business has been introducing quality antique and vintage pieces to the younger generations, who share her passion for repurposing and saving items from becoming unnecessary waste.
Heather is the heart and soul of Art of Vintage, overseeing big picture and day-to-day operations of the store. Everything she does is in service of increasing awareness of the store and its services.
Heather is joined in business by her younger sister Lori. Lori and Heather have both been on the Calgary market scene since 2012, putting their inherited talents to good use.
Lori is Art of Vintage’s master picker. She travels around Calgary and surrounding area to find the store’s perfect vintage pieces, from unique furniture to mirrors and glassware. She also loves to help out in the store, rearranging inventory to showcase the versatility of each unique piece.
