About Us

The Shop

Preservation started after vintage buyer Nicole Lorenson decided to share her love of vintage with the rest of the world. After years of selling vintage under the name Vintage Salvation, Nicole decided to expand by opening a brick-and-mortar shop in downtown Des Moines, Iowa. Today, Nicole shares with you her collection of unique vintage + modern clothing, accessories, and home goods IRL and online.

The Studio

Nicole has been working as a professional photographer since 2005. Her portrait style is timeless yet modern—much like the vibe at the shop. She specializes in weddings, newborns, and everything in between. The shop is our headquarters for consultations, but most shoots happen on location all over Des Moines and the US.
