19 Black Hamilton Staff

Browns Couture, Hell Bunny, Collectif, Unique Vintage, Retrospec’d, and Vixen by Micheline Pitt, there is a perfect something for everyone.   

Owner Judy began 19 Black 10 years ago after a trip to Vegas as an online shop with a quirky retro tee shirt line, and the business naturally grew into the gorgeous modern vintage fashion store it is today. The Hamilton store is run by Judy herself, her two daughters, Charlotte and Summer, her daughter-in-law, Annabel, and her Mum, Lyn. If you have visited the store or a 19 Black pop up at any of the many events and car-shows we attend, you may have seen some, if not all, of our family in action (Husband, Son, Son-in-law, and 2-year-old Grandson included!)

19 Black Timaru Opening

As Mr 19 Black often spends time-based in Timaru for work and after visiting many times, Timaru was the obvious choice for our second location and we opened earlier this year at 302 Stafford Street. The Timaru store is staffed by three lovely local ladies; Ella, April and Suzi.

This year we have also celebrated our 10th Birthday!

This will be our fourth year attending VVDO and we were thrilled to be approached by Sheena and her team to be the lead sponsor for the newly titled ’19 Black Miss Pinup New Zealand 2018′. We look forward to being part of this event once again and as we have in the past years, we are very excited to be launching a new brand at VVDO this year! Be sure to pop in and see us to find out more.

You can find us in Hamilton, at 421 Grey St, Hamilton East, and in Timaru, at 302 Stafford St. Jump on Facebook www.facebook.com/19black <http://www.facebook.com/19black> , or shop online 24/7 at www.19black.co.nz <http://www.19black.co.nz/>  to get your wishlist ready!

VVDO High Tea Partner: Dilmah

The tea at this year’s VVDO High Tea will be supplied by Dilmah Tea, New Zealand!

Dilmah Tea has become a household name in New Zealand since it’s founder Merrill J. Fernando began appearing on TV screens in the 1980’s with his catchy phrase “Do Try It”. But it’s not only his friendly face and the assurance of a family owned business which has endeared his brand to our hearts. It’s the quality and ethics for which Dilmah have become synonymous, earning the loyalty and trust of so many people. Dilmah gives us a taste of timeless traditions from days gone by with a heartwarming beverage that’s now making a resurgence. But it’s the values which are core to the business, maintaining orthodox hand-picked tea for the highest quality grown and packed fresh at the origin of Dilmah in Sri Lanka, once known as Ceylon. At least 10% of their profits are channelled through to hundreds of community projects throughout Sri Lanka as well as free tea supplied to Hospice centres and Ronald McDonald house in New Zealand, Dilmah is more than just a cup of tea.”

Book your high tea now for Saturday or Sunday!
