Hi there, nice to meet you! girl on the wing is a lovely little shop in Hamilton, Ontario (Canada)! Started in 2013, we specialize in unique and classic clothing, accessories, and gifts that will make you smile! We’ve always been inspired by nostalgic items that reference days gone by. When we first started our focus was solely on vintage clothing and a few retro-inspired pieces. We’ve now evolved to a broad product range with something for everyone! Whether it’s our lovingly-curated vintage collection, or unique handmade items from makers/designers around the world, or high-quality basics that stand the test of time- we’ve become known for our thoughtfully-collected products. We strive to find you pieces that you’ll have for years, pieces that become a conversation-starter, or lovely little things you can gift to your favourite people.
As a business we are committed to providing a welcoming and friendly atmosphere for each customer. In our city of Hamilton, we understand our role as a small business is essential for a dynamic community and we strive to give back where we can, promote accessibility and inclusion, and create a space that encourages connection.
Whether you’re shopping online or visiting the shop in-person we are grateful to have you as a customer and hope to create a positive experience. Please reach out with any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org !
A bit about me:
My name is Whitney McMeekin and I’m the owner of girl on the wing. I started the shop as a culmination of all my favourite things; fashion, collecting vintage, organizing events, and connecting with my community. I graduated from Ryerson University’s Fashion Communication program in 2010 and after a few years of working in the fashion/costume industry, I knew I wanted to start my own business. I’m the resident buyer/ vintage picker/ event-planner/ business planner/ visual merchandiser/ art director/ overall do-er and I absolutely love my job! When I’m not working I can be found cuddling my cats, baking up a storm in my kitchen, finding myself in the weirdest of places in the hunt for old things, dreaming up photoshoots, dancing in my living room, and traveling.
