Olive Road is an online vintage store and blog focused on vintage shopping and women’s history. I sell a selection of vintage fashion and accessories alongside small accessories that I have made from vintage fabrics in my studio in East London.
Olive Road launched in September 2014 at Pop Up Vintage Fairs London and is named after the street my Nan and Grandad lived on for 60 years, it holds many dear memories for me and my family. I never use any animal products in the accessories I make and you will never find fur clothing or fur trims for sale at Olive Road.
I’m Sarah Richards and I live in Bow, East London. I’ve had a varied career from studying Fashion Design at the London College of Fashion, working as a Buyer in the retail industry and then undertaking a BSc in Health Sciences:Homeopathy. During and after university, I worked as an Executive Assistant for a national newspaper and then onto a popular retailer’s head office. I have set up a separate blog for Executive PAs called Three Shots Ahead.
