ABOUT THE STORE
Muse is a women's clothing boutique owned by Jenn Kubat featuring curated pre-loved designer goods and rare, hand-picked vintage. In October 2020, we closed our Oakland brick & mortar and went fully digital! We are now based in Palm Springs, CA. Although we no longer have our brick & mortar store, we encourage you to continue to shop with us online, on Instagram, and at the many pop-ups we vend at around the Los Angeles and Bay area. Follow us on Instagram and join our email list to stay in touch!
ABOUT THE OWNER:
Jenn started her business in 2015 after acquiring a large collection of vintage clothing from her favorite vintage store, Cominichi's in Santa Barbara. Working at Cominichi's was always her favorite job and entrepreneurialism was something she always wanted to try.
After a great first year of selling online and on Etsy, Jenn had an opportunity to open her first brick & mortar store, The Vintage Net in Berkeley in 2016. After 3 incredible years of operating her Berkeley storefront as "The Vintage Net", she took the plunge and moved into a bigger and beautiful antique storefront space in Old Oakland on 9th Street in 2019 and re-branded her store to "Muse". Due to the events of COVID-19, Jenn decided to close her Old Oakland store in October 2020 and is now operating online only.
While the path for Muse has certainly had some ups and downs, Jenn's eye has only gotten better over time! She continues to source and find you fabulous vintage for your closet. Quality and style is what Muse is all about. We scour flea markets, antique stores, and more to find you items for your wardrobe you can feel good about!
Sustainability has always been something Jenn has cared about. You can be assured that when you buy vintage you are supporting a sustainable lifestyle. Items sold are generally always in excellent or pristine condition, unless otherwise noted.
