In the summer of 2016, Mr. and Mrs. Khanna visited London and Paris on a holiday. Every nook and corner of the streets there was so charming that they wished they could take a piece of London and Paris back home with them. One evening, while sitting at a street-side café in Paris, over a cup of tea, they came up with the idea of a brand that is a tribute to the timeless, vintage beauty of these two magnificent cities. A brand that resonates with being classic yet modern, luxurious yet affordable. A brand for lovers of all vintage and whimsical things, and that is how Prerna and Karan Khanna founded "A Vintage Affair".

A Vintage Affair is a Mumbai-based company that offers home decoration products, crockery and several other décor and gifting items, all inspired by old-school European aesthetics. Today, they are present in over 10 online marketplaces including Amazon, Flipkart, Myntra and 25+ retail stores across 10 cities in India. A Vintage Affair has curated gifts and worked with corporates for events, seminars and conferences, collaborated with wedding planners and even done bridal gift hampers, wedding giveaways and baby shower giveaways.

Expanding Product Categories
Initially starting off as a home décor brand with just vintage-themed household utility products, A Vintage Affair has now grown to offer a lot more to its customers, specializing in unique vintage knick-knacks, decorative
storage boxes for kitchens such as condiment storage containers, dessert stands, vintage showpieces, artificial flowerpots and soap dispensers. A Vintage Affair has now expanded their collections to children's decor and quirky fashion accessories.

A Vintage Affair works with several different vendors and manufacturers to curate the best collections, they import from Vietnam, Thai-land and China. To play their role in boosting the local economy and the "Made in India" initiative of the government, they have also started working with local manufacturers and handicraft artisans to create unique and high-quality home décor products.

Quality control is of prime importance to A Vintage Affair; be-fore delivering the orders to their customers. To ensure a thorough quality check, manufacturers and their warehouses are given specific checklists, and final product samples are given to team members to inspect and approve before dispatch.
