About Us

Art of Vintage + Kollektion is a curated collection of mid-century modern furniture and decor in the Killarney community, SW Calgary. Nothing makes our hearts beat faster than matching one of our unique vintage pieces with the perfect new owner.

Whether you’re looking for the perfect blend of classic and quirky to add to your modern home, or an authentic period piece for a photo shoot or event, Art of Vintage + Kollektion can help you create a style that’s all your own.

We are constantly updating the website with new pieces and we never have our entire inventory online at any given time, so check back often or in store for new pieces.

Heather Owner - Art of Vintage

 

THE TEAM

Meet Heather Oliphant, the woman behind Art of Vintage.

Heather’s love of the uniquely vintage began with her father, Kenny. Kenny always saw the best in old clutter and was determined to bring new life to items ranging from a 1946 homemade snow plane to a 1927 #15 Caterpillar.

Kenny’s love of refurbishing old items has clearly been passed down to Heather as she continues to fill Art of Vintage with authentic pieces of Canadiana, saving so many beautiful items from the typical fate of the landfill.

Perhaps Heather’s favorite part of this family business has been introducing quality vintage and mid-century modern pieces to the younger generations, who share her passion for repurposing and saving items from becoming unnecessary waste.

Heather is the heart and soul of Art of Vintage, overseeing big picture and day-to-day operations of the store. Everything she does is in service of increasing awareness of the store and its services.

Heather is joined in business by her younger sister Lori. Lori and Heather have both been on the Calgary market scene since 2012, putting their inherited talents to good use.

Lori Oliphant

Lori is Art of Vintage’s master picker. She travels around Calgary and surrounding area to find the store’s perfect vintage pieces, from unique furniture to mirrors and glassware. She also loves to help out in the store, rearranging inventory to showcase the versatility of each unique piece.

Leanne Wilkinson

Leanne showed up at the shop one day to buy an ashtray stand and we haven’t been able to get rid of her since! Jokes aside, she is our product photographer and social media manager. She looks after all our Instagram and Facebook posts and has made it her goal to grow and engage our loyal Art of Vintage Follwers by keeping our social media feeds fresh, funky and fun! You can also find Leanne in the store doing retail sales on Sundays.
