Jennifer Collins is a self-described “vintage addict” who founded PinkClouds.com, an online retailer for vintage fashion. The website offers an edited collection of designer and fashion vintage pieces, including apparel, shoes, jewelry and accessories.
Collins fell in love with secondhand garb at the University of Wisconsin, where she and her peers discovered the Madison-based Shopbop, which evolved into a dot-com shopping phenomenon. She launched PinkClouds.com in 2010.
