We are Jade & Maddy (soon to be husband & wife :-) team), and the faces behind TIBBS & BONES. Named after our two cats, TIBBS & BONES was first created in 2013, where we began our journey in the fashion world as early-rising market goers, selling vintage products at local Melbourne markets. After an interest in online sales, we decided to branch out, opening an Etsy store selling our hand crafted flower crowns, vintage men’s/women’s clothing and accessories.
It was during this time that our focus became clear & we opened a small online store, offering hand-selected vintage along with our favourite new brands. By late 2014 we had found our true calling & LOVE in the fashion world - new & must-have pieces from a small range of independent designers. These pieces had a slight edge or point of difference to the norm - and that's what made us smile.
Realising our calling, we made the conscious & joint decision that building our DREAM online (and eventually bricks & mortar) store is what we were 100% focused on doing; filled with our favourite selection of accessory & clothing designers. With mixed working-backgrounds in fashion, viticulture and construction - We jumped into our T&B adventure feet first.
Fast-forward to 2016, TIBBS & BONES now has over 100k followers across its online social networks & a loyal, local & international customer base. PLUS we have just opened our flagship TIBBS & BONES store in our hometown of Northcote - Melbourne! Which we are just BURSTING with excitement over! Both possessing a deep love for our designers, customers and business - We are filled with gratitude & happiness over every little bit of our rainbow filled world. The uttermost love goes into the selection of every item that joins our little store, so you know when you shop with us, you have picked a winner.
And who wouldn’t want to have a business with their best friend?
