Stacy Juga, Vintage Underground – 5817 6th Ave.
Q. How did you get your idea or concept for the business?
A. I started out just helping a friend sell some antique items on Facebook. I told a couple friends about it and next thing you know other people are asking me to sell items for them and it just kept growing from there.
Q. What products and services do you provide?
A. I own an Antique and vintage store. I would say 98% of the items are exactly that. There are not many antique stores in town andcpeople like the feeling of going back in time when they walk in. We also provide great items for the generation of eclectic decorating.
Q. What do you love about Downtown Kenosha?
A. I love the strong sense of community downtown. There are a lot of different businesses but we all look out for and promote each other.
Q. How would you describe your business?
A. I would say we have a great variety of items from 1908 forward. I always say, “If we don”t have what you are looking for I am sure we can find it.”
Q. What do you offer that stands out from other shops?
A. My shop is different because I believe I provide not only great stuff ,but also great memories. Many customers say. “I remember that at my grandma’s house.” I love providing that step back.
