About us

Connecting people through style and sustainability.

After years of selling vintage clothing from pop-ups under the name Vintage Salvation, Nicole Trower decided to expand by opening a brick-and-mortar shop in downtown Des Moines, Iowa. Today, we're proud to share with you our collection of unique vintage and slow fashion clothing, accessories, and home goods for the conscious consumer.

Our Team

Nicole Trower

Owner/Buyer/Photographer

Growing up on a farm in Iowa has always been a huge source of inspiration and pride for me. My vintage obsession started while studying photography in college. I'm a nostalgia junkie - I love old photos, old clothes, old stories, you name it! Happiness to me is time spent making memories with my closest friends and family.

I'm happiest when I am being creative and that is something I embrace in everything I do. I feel most inspired when I am enjoying the outdoors, listening to the Rollings Stones/Taylor Swift, or spending time with close friends. My go-to outfit is a t-shirt and vintage denim. I LOVE that I get to work with some pretty incredible women who inspire me every day!

I feel the happiest when I’m spending time with my friends or outside soaking up the sun. In my free time, you’ll find me at the gym or hanging out with my crazy pet parrot. I’m so grateful that I get to work somewhere that truly cares about our planet and keeps it in mind with the decisions we make. I also can’t forget about the amazing women I look up to and get to work with everyday!
