About Us

Let's get one thing clear! At Mercy Vintage, we love clothes and we love style, but we do not subscribe to one particular look and we do not follow what is fashionable. We cannot choose one decade, one designer or one anything because we like to mix it all together and we believe this is what creates great style.

It's not fast fashion, it's not driven by editors, it is that indescribable feeling when you mix things up and rock it! Our brick and mortar and Instagram are a reflection of us; what we wear everyday. We love the outrageous, we love the simplistic and we love quality.

What started as a way for us to upgrade our personal wardrobes has blossomed into a larger understanding that recycling clothes has an important impact on the planet. We believe that everyone should buy quality, buy less and invest in pieces that are not destined for landfills-which we believe that much of fast fashion is destined for. We personally wear second hand, local designer/artist, sustainable clothing and hope to encourage others to do the same. We also encourage crazy experimentation in the name of individual style and truly love to match people to the perfect piece!
Our Team
karen fort

My name is Karen and I am the owner of Mercy Vintage. A few things about me. I am married to an extraordinary human named Grady, I am a fur baby mom to an adopted pup named Flossy who has made my heart grow exponentially, and I am a triple cancer...read as a very sensitive soul! Mercy has given me the opportunity to be a part of a most extraordinary community- our team (brings tears to my eyes when I think about the people who have crossed our path), our clients (the most loyal and loving) and the vintage world (some of my dearest friends). My love of vintage started as an obsession with thrifting and treasure hunting and has transformed into a life affirming, life changing adventure.Thank you #MercyVillage

I’ve never felt apart of a community the way I do here at Mercy. Being surrounded by fun vintage, getting to work with some of the best people and having the opportunity to help style and connect with some of the sweetest people that shop with us. I’m so thankful to everyone who connects with us! I’m honestly just a scatter brained thrifter whose interests are incredibly fickle, which may be due to my Sagittarius sun. I have a hard time focusing...what am I doing here? Oh yeah my name is Tania Frankie and I use a lot of ✨ when I’m replying to people in our DMs so that’s how you’ll know it’s me.

Hi, my name is Kelsey, and I’m the latest addition to the Mercy team!I was born in and raised in the Bay Area, and spent about 8 years studying and working in fashion in New York. I’m obsessed with my cat, Hamburger, my pickup truck, Big Red, and making friends with dogs. In my spare time, I like making jewelry and crafting, going on adventure hikes and jamming out to Taylor Swift with absolutely no shame. Stemming off my crazy Gemini energy, I constantly love to learn about and experiment with different styles and designers. I fully embrace fashion not only as art, but as a strong form of self expression.

In the past couple months I’ve missed the shop and interacting with our awesome customers and community,

and am stoked to move forward with reopening Mercy!

Flossy is our newest team member.

She is a Capricorn, is ball obsessed and absolutely insists on sleeping in any and all piles of clothes we have about, no matter the condition. She is a love and looks forward to meeting all of you soon!
