About Us

Hey, everybody! We’re so glad you found us. Whether you’re seeking to maintain an attitude of gratitude for the past, or want something to help you stay grounded in the present, we’re right there with you! 

Nostalgica was founded by Candie Cooper due to her fascination with eclectic and beautiful objects. As a sixth grader, Candie made a bottlecap photo bracelet; and shortly after this “lightbulb moment” project, Candie had a side hustle, as well as a closet full of vintage clothing and an overflowing box of vintage jewelry hidden beneath her bed. “When I was younger, we always took the opportunity to pop into antique sales or flea markets along Indiana backroads and look for special treasures, and I wanted to find ways to provide those similar treasures to others.” Candie formerly operated an Etsy shop where she sold jewelry focals, as well as bags, shirts, bandanas, baskets and the like. 

The Nostalgica party wasn’t built by Candie alone though.  “It’s truly our customers that make it the fun and special brand it is.  Spend a morning hanging out on our live and you’ll see strangers (that become fast friends) lifting each other up…all.day.long.”  The team at Nostalgica follows through with our commitment of being a bright spot on the net and to each other. 

Our philosophy is that Nostalgica should be wild but rooted, confident but humble. We search high and low for exquisite materials which we hope will enrich your creative experience and maybe even make your heart flutter. We gather and supply surfaces and items that tell a story, and we can’t wait for you to add yours to it.

Keep it real!
