*IMAGES ON OUR BLOG ARE FOR EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES TO ENSURE THE UNIQUENESS OF THE PAST IS NOT LOST FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS*

{IF YOU OWN A PHOTOGRAPH THAT IS ON OUR BLOG AND WOULD LIKE IT REMOVED PLEASE EMAIL US}

The Eye of Faith Vintage was founded on 11/11/11 by Aaron Robert Duarte and Paul Heaton in Toronto, Canada. Starting as a one-of-a-kind online destination fusing together the {PAST}, {PRESENT}, & {FUTURE} of style and culture in a myriad of vintage musings meant to invoke and inspire.

Since then, the duo has not only been purveying time traveled treasures to discerning style lovers around the world, but have also forged their paths towards styling, original designs, photography, original art and costumes.

There are many subtleties that have been lost with our times, and we are aiming to revive some of these traditions for coming generations and beyond. . .

Every year we throw out thousands of pounds of used clothing, and spend billions of dollars on new. In our ever fragile world, it’s time for our collective consciousness to come together to help make things better. Sticking to vintage is an easy way to stay on point with your style, while also keeping GREEN!

  8. Thank you for visiting my poetry blog site with WordPress. It is always a great day to get a positive response to my spiritually-centered work. It is my belief, that much great work is lost on WordPress sites across the world. The reason, lack of feedback in a positive note to posters. It is my belief that we all need positive feedback to continue with our non-profit passions, which pushes us day to day to keep posting our inspirations in our Lord’s name.

It means a great deal to me to be able to share my simple talent (up for interpretation if it is good or not, nevertheless it is mine.) I also would like to say I enjoy reading your post and see what is going on here. You delve into some almost Eastern Mysticism and modern urban legends. I like the way you bring it together.
