Antiquaria is the brainchild of Bailey Amon (Calligrapher and Stylist) and Emma James (Illustrator and Print Designer). Bailey, who has a BS in Retail Merchandising from The University of Texas at Austin, and Emma, who has a BFA in Fashion Design from Parsons the New School for Design, have been collaborating since 2009.
The two met in Austin, Texas when Emma hired Bailey to do the calligraphy for her wedding invitation. They instantly recognized how well their unique sense of style complimented each other and have been working together ever since. In 2010, the duo launched their successful vintage housewares company, Antiquaria. Their products range from vintage china sets that are available for bridal registry to a line of customizable rubber stamps.
With their combined backgrounds and experience, it seems only natural that they expanded their services to include a collection of custom invitations in the fall of 2011.
