Pre-Loved Podcast: Retro 101/Cherry Bomb Vintage

Today’s show is with John Klynott, and with his business partner Janet Maevers, they own a store called Retro 101/Cherry Bomb Vintage in St. Louis. 

I met John the last time I was visiting my mom, who lives in St. Louis, and had a blast chatting with him about his story and the vintage business, so we decided to do a Pre-Loved Podcast episode together!

On this episode we talk about John’s history with fashion, growing up picking pieces from garage sales, working in the industry, and how he got started selling vintage fashion. I’m so excited for you to hear his stories, so let’s  dive right into the show!
